I was worried I would have trouble finding Intelligentsia Coffee, as it is located in the Michigan Boulevard District around much scaffolding. My worries turned out to be unfounded; there it was, with its signature red-winged logo.
The shop's selection is simple; I had an espresso and a cinnamon bun. The atmosphere was industrial but inviting, with a large communal table in the center and counter space along the bar and wall, all of which were high top level. Delightful background music wove in and out of the typical coffee grinding and brewing sounds. It was the perfect start to a rainy day.
