The makers of Nutella, Ferrero, have some good news to make your weekend even better.
Ferrero is opening their first ever wholly operated nutella cafe in Chicago.
This Cafe isn’t a pop-up joint of some sorts, but is here to stay. Unlike a small counter inside Eataly, co-owned by Mario Batali, this new restaurant across from Chicago’s Millennium Park is a fine answer to the City’s Choco obsession.
Their menu will feature delectable chocolate (Ha Ha, no surprises there), crepes, gelato, pastries, breakfast classics and fondues. What’s more, it isn’t limited to dessert! The Nutella Cafe is a full-fledged restaurant complete with salads, paninis, soups, coffee and more. You could order warm, freshly baked baguette with hazelnut spread, Hazelnut and Blueberry Granola with Yogurt and Nutella, and Italian specialties like Panzanella Fruit Salad. Surprisingly, the cafe will make available a number of dishes without the famous chocolate spread, too! “We wanted to create a world of Nutella for our fans that could truly capture the essence of the brand — not just in the dishes that will be served, but in the full experience from the moment you step into the space,” Noah Szporn, head of marketing for Nutella North America, said in a statement.
As if the words Nutella and Cafe together weren’t enough, the first 400 visitors at the cafe on May 31st will receive ‘special surprises’ along with a free menu item. The cafe at 189 North Michigan Ave. will be permanent. Its grand opening is scheduled for may 31st, for which chef Rocco DiSpirito will be present.
If at all you happen to be in Chicago later this month, do visit this straight-out-of-heaven cafe!
