I’ve been going to Intermezzo since I was in high school. And even now, Cafe Intermezzo still one of my favorite spots. BUT, there are some cons. The parking is hard to come by and they charge to park there. Ok, I could overlook that if the service was as good as the desserts at Cafe Intermezzo. But, if you go, be prepared to wait, and wait, and wait (to be seated and to be waited on).
They do serve regular entrees in addition to coffee and dessert, but its not really anything special. Desserts are the star here. They have a huge dessert display case. The way it works is you go up to view the display area and can ask the workers behind the counter questions about the desserts. Once you make your selection, they write it on a piece of paper and you go back to your seat and hand it to your server. I used to think this was all very charming when I was younger. Now it just seems like a pain in ass.
But the atmosphere is worth it. I especially like the outdoor section which is great on cool fall evenings.
Pros: Pages and pages of coffees to choose from, huge dessert selection
Cons: Parking, Slow Service
