CHICAGO — The first-ever official cafe dedicated to all things Nutella is coming to Michigan Ave. in downtown Chicago , according to WGN.

Owned and operated by Ferrero, the makers of Nutella, the permanent cafe will offer an “array of all-day dishes and go-to options,” the company announced Tuesday .

Among the “authentic” menu items inspired by the hazelnut-chocolate spread’s Italian origins will be warm baguettes and gelato, all topped with Nutella. For those who have nut allergies or just want something else there will be non-Nutella items on the menu as well. Even the decor is meant to evoke the spread.

“We wanted to create a world of Nutella for our fans that could truly capture the essence of the brand … from the moment you step into the space,” Noah Szporn, Head of Marketing at Nutella North America said in a statement.

The cafe will open May 31 at 151 N. Michigan Ave. near Millennium Park in Chicago.
