2012_1_18_intelligentsia.jpg Logan Square residents will soon be more caffeinated— reports that an opening date has been set for the newest outpost of Intelligentsia. The new store, located at 2642 N. Milwaukee Ave., will open April 25. It'll be the fifth Intelligentsia in Chicago and the eighth overall (there are three in L.A.)

According to the Intelligentsia website:

As home to some of our favorite restaurants and bars and many of our Chicago team members, Logan Square is a neighborhood we've wanted to join for years. We've put the bar right in the middle of the space with stools on either side, allowing us to look after guests throughout their visit. Also - there will be magazines, toast, milkshakes, tiles and some of the best-baked goods in Chicago.
In other Intelligentsia news, over in Lakeview, the flagship location of the coffee roaster has closed for remodeling and will reopen April 18. The project include doubling the seating. Preview the changes at an open house event on April 17 at 6 p.m.

The last tidbit in the Intelligentsia roundup: an Old Town location is set to open in June.
