a cup of intelligentsia
we made it to two intelligentsia cafes during our visit to chicago. they are one of the first specialty coffee cafes and they continue to do an incredible job. it was inspiring to see all the baristas at their stations working fluidly together. their seasonal menus are so interesting to read as well as drink from. not to mention enjoying so much delicious coffee including multiples of my favorite, the cortado. the interiors and bar set up are so sleek and user friendly. it gave us quite a few ideas for avoca!
