Staying out late doesn't have to mean a perhaps, less-than-tasteful extra few hours spent at a dive bar. Though alternatives can be hard to find, we value creating a space to enjoy late-night dining, cocktail-sipping, or pastry-indulging in a high energy, yet relaxing environment.

That said, it's wonderful that the editorial staff at Atlanta Journal Constitution feels the same! The AJC has named us one of the city's top seven spots for late-night Atlanta fun, with an emphasis on the exclusion of bars.

Though airport dining options have been improving, travelers still often find themselves struggling to seek out satisfying choices and experiences while on-the-go.

That said, we're proud to be part of the changing culture in this arena of restaurants.

The site '' published a list of their ultimate recommendations in airports across the country. The fact that we've got multiple locations made us eligible for their rankings, and we're glad to be listed in the second spot!

Here is the excerpt, written by Jess Bolluyt --

"Café Intermezzo isn’t ubiquitous. But it has enough locations — in Texas, Tennessee, and Georgia — that it’s worth mentioning. In fact, the Travel Channel considers it one of the be...

As the world's busiest airport, the hustle and bustle intrinsic to traveling through Hartsfield-Jackson International is bound to create feelings of chaos.

We believe that that's why our guests so enjoy pairing coffee and cuisine enjoyment with reading at Café Intermezzo's B Concourse location during spare time before or between flights.

We're delighted to know that the judges of the 2018 Airport Food & Beverage national awards agree!

Thank you, Finavia, The Moodie Davitt Report, and The Foodie Report for selecting us as winners of the category: Airport Food & Beverage Offer of the Year within a Retail/Convenience Store.

What a delight it's been acquainting the Plano and Dallas crowds with Café Intermezzo.

While some guests have walked in sharing excited reactions and special memories upon realizing we're now here in Texas (those who've visited the Atlanta locations!), others are familiarizing themselves for the first time with the brand and concept.

It's especially for those curious diners that we enjoyed joining WFAA's Good Morning Texas live from inside the café this past week.

Founder/President Brian Olson and daughter, Grace, hosted reporter Shannon Powell Hart and those watching from home for a morning full of cuisine, pastry, and coffee.

While you sit, sip, and savor the rich, silky flavor of the espresso at one of our cafés, a team of coffee experts are working on future roasts at their facility in downtown Atlanta.

Batdorf & Bronson, originally founded in 1986, prides itself on producing and distributing their product through a genuine interest in the craft, and strong relationships - a reciprocal effort for all parties involved.

“It’s a lot of relationship coffee where we’re dealing directly with the farmers. And by getting involved directly, it’s for the benefit of both of us. Better prices for them, occasional help and assistance financially when needed. And for us, it means better coffee. More special coffee that you can’t just fi...

The time has come to officially welcome guests into our brand new café in Texas!

Each detail within the process has been executed with thoughtful purpose and intent for our guests’ thorough enjoyment, and interacting with those who will eagerly fill the seats is truly fulfilling.

The month of love -- and therefore, the month of 'sweets' -- is upon us!

To celebrate all that is rosy, we created a new adult beverage that is refreshing and well-balanced in its sweetness, tang, and strength.

Say hello to the 'Mezzo Rose.'

This gin-based martini is specially engineered for February as it's accompanied by a light, house-made rose syrup. Pomegranate and lemon add a fruity zing, while a touch of St. Germain keeps it crisp.

Finished with a splash of bubbly, this specially-featured drink is simply made for celebration.

"Hadassah Greater Atlanta ( held its 2017 Centennial Leadership Institute graduation and installed its 2018 officers at Café Intermezzo in Dunwoody on Dec. 10.

Linda Hakerem and Michele Weiner-Merbaum, Hadassah Greater Atlanta’s leadership vice presidents, officiated at the graduation and the installation. They were the 2017 facilitators for CLI, which is designed to bring knowledge, leadership skills and passion to Hadassah."


Sheila Dalmat, who was installed as the Atlanta president for a second term, explained why each attendee was given a rose: “Roses are beautiful, fragrant and remind us of celebrations of life and love. Roses also have thorns, need care (pruning/cutting) and feeding (water and food) to achieve their full beauty. Let’s always nurture our souls and care for our needs and the needs of others so that we can celebrate with full, beautiful roses.”

Friendships can mean the world, in life and in business. And as we finish the building of our newest location in the Dallas/Plano area, we’re thrilled to have one of our longtime friends working behind-the-scenes on a piece so special to what Intermezzo provides.

Jesse Orozco, owner of Orozco Espresso in Southern California, has known our founder, Brian Olson, since before Café Intermezzo first opened its doors in 1979. Brian and Jesse met while both working for a Los Angeles-based company called American Best Coffee, which imported espresso machines and pasta machines from Italy.

Now, forty years later, Jesse remains ‘the guy’, the craftsman...the artist, for the building of our machines.

“We’re retro-f...

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.
