The holidays may be over, but the experience of sipping on something delicious doesn't have to be.

Because we believe in that idea fully, we've created a dessert-in-a-glass-style drink that is sure to please the taste buds. We left the task up to one of our trusted bartenders, Justin, and we believe he concocted a scrumptious addition to the beverage book!

Introducing, the 'Tiramisu Martini.'

A rum liquor base delivers a ladyfinger-like taste; a principal element of classic Tiramisu.

Half a shot of espresso gives a rich, coffee flavor without overwhelming the senses.

Accompanying liqueurs make for a full Tiramisu-like taste, while a little bit of cream rounds out the flavors. Topped with a swirl of schlag (whipped cream) and a sprinkle of cocoa...delighting in the 'Tiramisu Martini' is an experience sure to be remembered.

“What’s in a name?” said Juliet to Romeo in the classic Shakespearian tale.

Well, at Café Intermezzo, the answer is a lot.

The combination of the words “café” and “intermezzo” were chosen and combined with great purpose by President/Founder Brian Olson. Together, they describe the core essence of what this coffeehouse aims to provide customers, both in physical and experiential offering.

“‘Intermezzo’ is an Italian word that was created for the opera. And it means, literally, ‘intermission’…something between two points,” Brian explained.

“The use of ‘intermezzo’ in our case was to create the reality that someone could come in ...

Turkish coffee: You might’ve seen or heard about it, while being left to wonder what it is exactly.

This historic Arabic caffeinated beverage has roots that trace back 400 years. Theories vary about the particulars of its coming into being. But, it is known that coffee bean-based experiments at the Sultan’s palace spawned it’s origination. At the time, mortar-ground coffee was boiled in a pot called a ‘cezve.’

As people outside the Ottoman empire eventually learned of the concept, the selling of it became big business in Turkey…and its preparation wasn’t solely for consumption. The process, however, was regarded as a special event; a cherished tradition.

Similar to the way Café Intermezzo ha...

The wreaths are hung, decorative "Santa" sits above the pastry displays, and Christmas music charms the ears. The holiday spirit is alive at each Café Intermezzo location!

Try either...or both! You will not leave disappointed :)
