Description

One $50 gift card to Cafe Intermezzo.    You can relax, rendezvous, reflect, reminisce, any day of the year!

Long before the modern ?coffee houses ? adorned corners all over America, Café Intermezzo embodied the essence of the 300 year-old European coffeehouse. Step into Café Intermezzo, and you are stepping into another time, another place. It?s a vacation, a holiday, an intermezzo (intermission) between the busy acts of your life: in musical terms, it?s your rest between allegro and adagio. A wonderful cappuccino, a beautiful pastry, and your getaway or rendezvous is complete. On another visit, you might enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner, or a late-night appetizer with a glass of wine or a cocktail. The Beverage Book offers over 800 choices. ?Tour Guides ? take you through descriptions of over seventy pastries. The choices are dramatic, and you can partake in choosing every day of the year. Café Intermezzo has been presenting the place, the time, the choices for over thirty years. It is truly a tradition, complete only with the presence of you!

Café Intermezzo began as an idea in 1971, when Brian Olson traveled to his heritage homeland of Germany. Visiting a konditorei in Berlin (bakery-Café), and then many more throughout Germany and Austria, brought conviction that the Europäische Kaffeehaus (European coffeehouse), as a significant Place in the lives of its guests, had a potential for a home in America. As a respite in a person?s day, a place to stop, to relax, to think?as an ?intermission ? between all of the activities and responsibilities, Olson believed that the Kaffeehaus would provide a distinct and wonderful refuge in the ever-expanding world of fast-food and environments designed to expedite takeout beverages and foods. The European coffeehouse represents the antithesis of food and drink in a hurry. Here the music, the aromas, the art, the sheer nature of the Café all represent the essence of the coffeehouse experience. Rush and chaos are left outside the door. Inside abounds the almost ethereal stuff of thought, of the body at-ease and the mind simply doing what its owner wants it to do. Rendezvous with a friend, hold a meeting, or simply ponder the moment, the day, or the lifetime in solitude. Each is, and all are, sufficient reason for simply being there.
