Food + Drink
Make your visit to Krannert Center complete with a meal from Intermezzo or a drink from the Stage 5 Bar. Intermezzo serves up freshly baked breakfast goods, light lunches, hearty dinners, vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare, delectable treats, yogurt, fruit, and coffee, with many items sourced from small family farms. The Stage 5 Bar in the Lobby is an open space to hang out, get in some study time, meet someone, hold a meeting, or just relax.
You can feel especially good about your purchases (and maybe a little less guilty about splurging on a cookie) because all of the proceeds are invested right back into the events you see on Krannert Center stages.
Weekdays: 7:30am to 3:30pm
Performance weekdays: 7:30am through the end of performances
Performance weekends: Open 90 minutes before showtime through the end of performances
Order before the performance to have your selection waiting for you at intermission! The full dinner menu is served until performances begin; desserts and beverages are available at any time.

ORDER IN ADVANCE
No matter what you’re hankering—a slice of red velvet cake with a cup of decaf, a crisp salad, or a glass of burgundy—you can place an order before you head inside the theatre and we’ll have it waiting for you at intermission or after the show.

Skip the flimsier options and invest $15 in a Mezzo Mug—and we’ll fill it up for free! Bring it back for a refill of one of our coffee blends, hot tea, iced tea, or a soft drink for the refill price. It’s a sensible purchase that’s good for your budget and good for the planet.
Gift Cards HAVE YOU COVERED
Our gift cards never expire and can be redeemed at any trip to Intermezzo or the Stage 5 Bar. Use them for purchases at Promenade, Intermezzo, and the Ticket Office too. They’re available for sale at Promenade and the Ticket Office, and you can also find them online. CenterChecks are still good and will be honored forever, with encouragement to come in and trade them for gift cards.
Our in-demand buffet-style dinner service is served before select performances. Choose from slow-roasted, hand-carved prime rib or roast pork tenderloin with creamy dijon sauce for $14.95. You’ll receive red-skinned mashed potatoes, fresh steamed vegetables, and rolls with your entree. Service typically begins at 5:30pm and continues until 7:30pm.
