We just had to find a good coffee before our coach trip to Racine and luckily this place is close to our pickup point at the Cultural Centre. We have been fans of Intelligentsia coffee ever since we've been visiting Chicago - they never disappoint...More

These guys know how to do great espresso! The beans had great flavour, milk was smooth and a good temperature, service was lovely. Definitely recommended for people who want proper espresso.

We went there by chance, we loved Kenyan coffee & pistachio croissant. I even bought Nicarague freshly roasted beans .. it's the best coffee and least acidic flavour. They don't have baby stool if ever want to bring a baby with you.

Very basic coffee shop. Cold brew was great. Nothing more nothing less. Seating could be better. Want to try espresso next time.

While the price point is a little higher than the competition, if you can get to an Intelligentsia coffee shop, by all means go. The coffee is smooth and delicious and if you are a tea drinker, they have great teas, (loose tea!).

One afternoon overlay at Chicago, with good city trip and nice coffee here. The serving is great and the coffee is great.

Got a flat white even though it wasn't on the menu. Cool place. Great coffee. Sat outside in the sweltering heat in some good shade.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
