Intermezzo will close at 2pm on Wednesday, August 11, 2021.

With the arrival of Illinois to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan, Intermezzo cafe is now open to the public! Come get acquainted or reacquainted with Intermezzo’s freshly baked cookies and cinnamon rolls, red pepper and gouda soup, salads, grilled cheese sandwiches, and much more, with many items sourced from small family farms.

Intermezzo cafe offers both indoor seating and to-go orders, Monday through Friday from 8am to 3pm. The Center can be entered through Illinois Street, Upper-level Orange Parking (accessible entrance) or the Goodwin Avenue Lobby Entrance, North Doors near Stage 5. The other entrances are currently closed.

Join the Intermezzo email lunch list to get the daily specials, information on new menu items, and updates on our green initiatives.

cinnamon rolls

Delicious news! Intermezzo cafe now has “take-and-bake" cinnamon rolls available. You can pre-order five rolls for just $12 (as many orders as you wish), and of course they come with a generous allotment of cream cheese frosting! Place your order by 5pm for next-day pickup Monday through Friday. (Intermezzo cafe is closed Saturdays and Sundays.) At your requested time, you may pick up and pay for your order at Intermezzo cafe, or we will make arrangements with you for curbside pickup.

Place your order



Skip the flimsier options and invest $9.95 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.



Due to current safety considerations, Stage 5 Bar is temporarily closed. Check back here for updates about its future re-opening.



Our gift cards never expire and can be redeemed at any trip to Intermezzo or the Stage 5 Bar. Use them for purchases at the Ticket Office, too. They’re available for sale at 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. You can check your Krannert Center gift card balance anytime.
