GODIVA opens their first U.S cafe here in the U.S., and it is only the beginning of this premium chocolate haven!
Today marks the first day that GODIVA opens their deluxe chocolate cafe at 560 Lexington Avenue. This location has it all if you want to drop in for a golden cup of coffee or want to nibble on some sweet and savory treats. It’s a perfect place for the parents to refuel and for the kiddos to load up on treats (with parents’ permission of course)! This one-stop shop is perfect to bring your family if you are in the area and need a sweet pick-me-up! If you haven’t visited already, take a peak at these photos and what they have on the menu below—super enticing!
Fun fact—GODIVA is truly international with stores in China, Belgium, Japan, the Middle East, and now, New York (lucky us)! With a location now in the heart of New York City, the company has spruced up its menu and refreshed its design for this U.S. launch. In addition, we can also expect by the end of 2019 to see 10 more locations pop up in New York State, with a plan to expand to 2,000 locations worldwide, and 400 of those in the Americas. For those chocolate lovers out there—this is pure bliss!
GODIVA prides itself for its quality that it offers to its consumers. After New York Family got to chat with Thierry Muret, executive chef chocolatier, we really got a sense of the love that goes into these crafted treats. From Muret going into depth about the layers of their airy croissants to showing us what a quality coffee bean looks like, every detail of these drinks and menu options were carefully thought out for people to marvel over their deliciousness. After trying these treats out first hand at the new cafe, it was no joke—pure goodness!
