3123 North Broadway Ave., Chicago, IL 60657, United States

To the delight of Lakeview residents, Doug Zell and his wife Emily Mange established the first Intelligentsia Coffeebar in 1995. Though the small franchise has now grown to five locations, Intelligentsia upholds their original mission to provide the highest quality, direct trade coffee. At the North Broadway flagship café, customers enjoy free Wi-Fi and Bowie-style tunes while seated at broad farmer’s tables lit by exposed bulbs as well as natural light from the large front windows. Foamy drinks like the sweet but well-balanced signature Black Cat espresso are always topped with an artful design, such as a leaf or heart.
