In a series of posts tagged as "Favorite Finds", we want to share with you some of our favorite hangouts and experiences–proof that we do get out from behind our screens. (¬‿¬)

Intelligentsia Coffee has a wonderful outdoor seating area before you walk inside and once inside you feel like you have walked into a friendly coffee laboratory. The flowing of natural light and metal bars with steamy air coming out of the machines add to experience.


It was insightful to learn that the Intelligentsia Coffee sold in Target is brought in from Chicago while the beans sold at the Venice location is brought in from Echo Park. I knew there was a difference!



We are on a roll going to all these very nice cafes. Check out another Story Spark favorite down the street: Blue Bottle
