A Sweet Treat

Many moms harbor a sweet tooth, and nothing says “I love you” quite like a delicious dessert! Take her to a bakery for her favorite treat, visit a cafe and sip on indulgent beverages, or bake her something made with love. Either way, she’s sure to enjoy spending time with you while munching on a sugary snack this Mother’s Day.

One of our favorite places to enjoy a dessert in addition to coffee, other beverages, and chic menu items is Café Intermezzo. With three locations throughout the city, this cafe captures the exact feel of a historic European coffeehouse. Their impressive selection of cheesecakes is accompanied by an unparalleled atmosphere that blends nostalgia, charm, and a distinctly European feel.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Brian Olson, founder and president of Café Intermezzo. He started the cafe based on the concept of the Vienna coffeehouse of days past, where people, especially women, frequented to enjoy coffee and good conversation without the rowdiness of a regular bar.

The atmosphere and welcoming energy at each Café Intermezzo location speaks for itself. While you’ll enjoy a romantic date there, you’ll also relish eating alone, meetups with friends, and, of course, quality time with Mom. As Brian says:

“It’s really gratifying … to provide more than just a place to get something to eat and drink.” Café Intermezzo is an experience you can’t miss in Atlanta.
