Everyone’s favorite hazelnut chocolate spread, Nutella, is officially opening their cafe in only two short week!
If you’re anything like us, your tub of Nutella has the shelf life of a fruit fly. No sooner is it bought it becomes that frustrating game of scraping the sides of the tub to get the last precious dollops of chocolatey-hazelnut goodness.
After some speculation and rumors of the cafe opening, Ferrero confirmed earlier this year that a Nutella Cafe was coming. They set their sights on a 2,200-square-foot cafe and coffee bar near Union Square, on 13th Street and University Place and now, the time has come. On November 14 New York will finally have its very own Nutella Cafe!
It won’t be the cities only foray into single-concept restaurants/cafes; you all probably know the Kelloggs cafe, the Cheetos restaurant, and the avocado restuarants popping up everywhere. However, based on the success of these restaurants and cafes, as well as the continuous success of NYC’s Nutella Bar, we can only imagine the long lines it’ll open up to.
The cafe will of course feature a Nutella-inspired menu, as well as a specialty espresso beverages. According to a recent report by BuzzFeed, items at the new cafe will include a gelato brioche sandwich (two caramelized brioche buns filled with a glorious helping of their Nutella Gelato),and a Panzanella Fruit Salad (cubed pieces of pound cake with yogurt, mixed berries, and drizzled with Nutella). Dessert for breakfast, anyone?
Here are the renderings of the entrance, outdoor seating area, and fun indoor space the cafe will feature:
The decision for an NYC location came after the success of pop-ups, their Nutella Bar in Eataly, and the popularity of theworld’s very first Nutella Cafe, which opened in Chicago May of 2017.
