Toronto has a Nutella Café, so is Vancouver next?

Dec 20 2017, 2:29 am

If Toronto gets creamy, chocolate-y, hazelnut goodness in various forms (and in one location), then why can’t Vancouver?

A Nutella Café opened in a Sobeys market on Fort York Boulevard – essentially, everybody’s dream come true and worst nightmare rolled into one delicious package.

In this magical happy palace of chocolate and hazelnut spread, they serve pastries, cookies, and made-to-order crepes, while stacks of jars of the main ingredient line the counter. Specialty coffees are also served, but nothing infused with Nutella – yet.


According to a press release from Sobeys, the Nutella Café will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week.

So our question is: when is Vancouver getting a Nutella Café? Apparently not any time soon.

“Any future opportunities we’ll assess later on. We just want to make the first one perfect, great, everything we want it to be before we look to expand,” Sobeys spokeswoman Vicki Leung told Vancity Buzz.

For the record, Sobeys also owns Thrifty’s and IGA.
