It's been a minute since i uploaded a blog post and trust me i really have no excuse for my incompetence. I recently visited the first and only Nutella cafe in the U.S (for now) and of course as a Nutella lover, i decided to share my experience with you.
Ferrero is an Italian owned brand that invented and manufactures the chocolate goodness called 'Nutella'.
The company recently opened their very first official U.S café in Chicago's Millennium park plaza on May 31st 2017.
Since the opening of the café, i have been planning on visiting but the crowd last summer was too much for me so i decided to wait for the hype to die down a little and also knowing that nobody would want to stay out in the cold during winter just to eat.
Walking into the café felt so warm, i personally didn't know if it was the crowd or the place itself but however, i loved it.
The decor was quiet modern and detailed. The fire pit made the second section really cozy and lighting was alright.
The menu was quiet explanatory, although i had expected a Nutella special on the espresso menu. The menu options ranges from crepes to paninis and tasty cookies.
Banana, strawberry and Nutella Crepes.
Italian Panini ( which were a little too dry and crusty to bite)
Savory Specialty: Buckwheat Crepe.
Beverage: Medium Latté & Medium Cappuccino.
Tasty Italian meat Panini..
Buckwheat Crepe: I really loved the presentation.
The café is accessible to both tourists and Chicagoans a like as it is located close to the Millennium park on Michigan avenue, with Nando's Peri Peri upstairs in the same building.
Is it worth it?
Personally, it all depends on your preference. If you love trying out new spots
and a Nutella lover like myself you'll definitely love it. The only downside is the crowd most times and not enough room to accommodate the customers.
