#24. Intelligentsia Coffee, Venice Beach

Coffee Shop: Intelligentsia Coffee, Venice Beach
Time: Sunday afternoon
Coffee beans: Black Cat Project
Ordered: 1 x Espresso, 1 x Cold brew

Beautiful store. Perhaps the best yet. Approach from the road, via a green seating area. Concrete floors. Muted grey walls. Open air ducts. Industrial feel for the barista area. Shelving full of merchandise on either side of room. Standing spaces around bar. Tiered concrete seating at back, which makes the whole space feel much bigger. Seating pads for the steps. Wood and wire stools at various points. Hanging glass above makes the space feel two tiered.Very busy. Friendly staff at multiple serving points. Delicious food behind glass. Great music. Tasty coffee.
