Following nine months of mystery surrounding the Intelligentsia Coffeebar in Logan Square, recently stoked by this teaser video and the remodeled Lakeview location, the reveals are finally here. The paper is off the windows under the sleek logo at 2642 N. Milwaukee, showing a white brick interior within and modern booth and table combinations immediately in tow. The centerpiece is a long rectangular coffeebar surrounded by metal stools and clad in sky blue trim, state-of-the-art java equipment in the center and on the counters. Trendy magazine racks and shelves line the walls.
Cook au Vin, a Logan neighbor, is providing pastry, as is Floriole Bakery. Toast and milkshakes will available come summer. Beverages from Kilogram Tea, a new company spawned from Intelligentsia Tea, are part of the menu. The space will open to the public tonight and regular service begins tomorrow.
