Ashok Selvam is the editor of Eater Chicago and a native Chicagoan armed with more than two decades of award-winning journalism. Now covering the world of restaurants and food, his nut graphs are super nutty.

After the success of the Nutella Bar inside Eataly, the makers of the famous hazelnut spread have decided to open a company-owned cafe across the street from Millennium Park. The world’s first Nutella Cafe will open up on May 31 at 189 N. Michigan Ave., complete with giveaways at Millennium Park Plaza. And it’s not just about sweet stuff—paninis, soups, and salads are also on the menu.

A Nutella rep said the cafe differs from Eataly’s bar—which features a Nutella fountain—in that it’s owned by Ferrero USA, the company that owns Nutella: “So it’s the first to truly capture the essence of the Nutella brand—not just in the dishes that’ll be served, but in the full experience from the moment you step through the door and into the space,” the rep said.

It’s a two-level cafe that will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Crepes, gelatos, and a full-service espresso bar will be included. Check out the full menu below. The rep said the cafe’s opening won’t affect Eataly’s Nutella Bar. It’s business as usual in River North. More to come soon.
