We’ve all been there. Halfway through picking ingredients at the local grocery store to make a healthy-ish meal after work, the hunger hits you – the perfect justification for an indulgent pre-dinner treat. But alas, a chocolate bar just doesn’t quite hit the spot.
Now at the downtown Sobeys Urban Fresh on Metcalfe Street, a Nutella Café, devoted solely to the popular chocolate-hazelnut spread, is available to serve those exact cravings – and more!
Ottawa’s first Nutella Café officially opened on September 8, to the excitement of all dessert lovers around town – myself included.

You can grab Nutella-filled treats and coffee at the Café every day from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Sobeys Urban Fresh (193 Metcalfe St.).
