Intermezzo serves up freshly baked breakfast goods, light lunches, hearty dinners, vegetarian and nonvegetarian fare, delectable treats, yogurt, fruit, and Krannert Blend coffee. 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.

Illinois Green Business Association: Certified Green BusinessBetter still: many ingredients are locally produced, we feature organic selections, the containers are biodegradable, and the takeout boxes are made from corn-based recyclable products. Because of efforts like these, Intermezzo has earned Green Business Certification from the Illinois Green Business Association by meeting or achieving program standards in energy conservation, water conservation, waste reduction and recycling, pollution prevention, transportation, landscaping, general employee practices, purchasing, and community development.

Take advantage of the free parking on evenings and weekends and 30 minutes of free parking in the lower south level of our underground garage (on the Oregon Street side) on weekdays.

Order in Advance

No matter what you’re hankering—a slice of red velvet cake with a cup of decaf, a crisp salad, a glass of burgundy, or a meal for your kids—you can drop by before you head inside the theatre. We’ll take your order and have it waiting for you at intermission or after the show.

New Coffee Choices

Get a lift from an espresso, a latte, or a cappuccino made with coffee directly sourced from small farms. Liven one up with an extra shot or a flavored syrup and let the rich flavors and aromas wake up all your senses. Our Java Joe, Full House, and Diva Decaf blends are refreshed this season with beans that have complex notes ranging from sweet fruit to luscious dark chocolate.

Mezzo Mugs

Skip the flimsier options and invest $9.95 in a Mezzo Mug—our travel mug in gleaming metallic shades—and we’ll fill it up for free! Bring it back for a refill of one of our exclusive Krannert Blend coffees—Java Joe, Full House, or Diva Decaf—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.
