about us

Intermezzo Bar + Café was created as a local’s hangout that visitors also enjoy.  Comfortable yet vibrant, the space was designed for friends to meet up for a flavorful bite, a glass of Santa Barbara wine or a craft cocktail before dinner. At the same time, a complete lunch or dinner in Intermezzo features fresh chopped salads, innovative flatbreads, gourmet burgers and delectable small plates for sharing. Dine al fresco on the historic courtyard, partake European-style on the front portico or arrive before the dinner rush to enjoy a coveted fireplace couch.  Warm and inviting service and a decidedly welcoming, Santa Barbara atmosphere, are our defining characteristics— and no need for reservations, just drop in and join us soon at Intermezzo!
