Nutella gets its own US cafe
ITALIAN chocolate-maker Ferrero revealed details on the opening of its first Nutella Cafe in the United States, a standalone restaurant that will feature the iconic chocolate hazelnut spread on everything from warm, grilled baguettes to yoghurt, gelato and fior di latte, a semi-soft, fresh Mozzarella made with cow’s milk.
And unlike many PR pop-up stunts, the Nutella Cafe will be a permanent fixture in the Windy City.
The menu will also sell savoury items like paninis and salads.
In 2015, the brand opened a Nutella Cafe in downtown Toronto, Canada, inside the Sobeys Urban Fresh grocery store. The in-store café sells made-to-order crepes and Nutella-stuffed crepes and has limited seating available.
Eataly in New York and Chicago also have Nutella Bars, which serve desserts but no savoury items.
Nutella was created in 1964, and has since become available in 160 countries worldwide. It was introduced to the US in 1983.
The Nutella Cafe opened its doors on May 31, with celebrity food host Rocco DiSpirito, and is located near Millennium Park. — AFP Relaxnews
