Nutella Cafe with dishes featuring the beloved hazelnut spread may be opening its second U.S. location near Union Square.
Commercial Observer reports that the spread’s parent company Ferrero International S.A. is eyeing a 2,200-square-foot space at 116 University Place at 13th Street for the cafe, which opened a location in Chicago earlier this year. Nutella has had pop-ups, as well as a Nutella Bar in Eataly, but Chicago was the first time they had a standalone, permanent restaurant with both sweet and savory food in the States.
Eater has reached out to Nutella for further information.
The cafe in Chicago serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including waffles, croissants, crepes, panini, and family-style fondue. Here’s a look at the menu from that outpost, and here’s a look at the space in Chicago, which has a modern look and lots of whites and browns. It opened in a touristy area in May with huge lines, though hype for the cafe has died down since then.
Stay tuned for more.
