NYC Local Attraction- The Nutella Cafe

Nuts about the Nutella Café by Teacher Nolan

I came across the following quote on Pinterest:  “Money can’t buy happiness but it can buy Nutella and that’s basically the same thing.”  And after visiting the Nutella Café, it’s easy to agree with this quote.The second Nutella Café in the United States opened in New York City last year (the first of its kind opened in Chicago).  The café is conveniently located on University Place in Greenwhich Village, just a short walk from beautiful Union Square (and the Union Square subway station).

The café is a perfect place to spend a rainy afternoon reading an English book (while sipping on a cup of coffee and enjoying a decadent pastry), meet up with new friends to practice your conversation skills, or even buy a few unique gifts for friends and family who have sweet tooth. The delicious nutty chocolate spread is the star of the café’s extensive menu, which includes items such as pastries, crêpes, a family-style fondue, waffles and gelatos – plenty of options for any season or mood.  But if it all sounds a little too sweet for you, the café also offers savory menu options. If there are just too many choices for you, take-away options are always a good idea. On your way out, be sure to check out some of the cool Nutella merchandise available, such as coffee mugs, tumblers, personalized Nutella jars and even Nutella-shaped USBs. These items would make cool souvenirs or gifts for friends. Places like these are why it’s a special experience to study English in New York. There are so many fun things to do and see in the city and they are perfect places to meet local people and practice English conversation skills or take your classmates for an enjoyable time to get to know each other.
