Boasting over 120 years of history, Lavazza was created by the tenacious and intuitive Luigi Lavazza. In 1895, he acquired a small grocery store in the heart of old Torino. Today the symbol of Italian espresso worldwide, the company is an industry leader when it comes to quality. Caffè Lavazza at Eataly Chicago offers a vast repertoire of espresso-based beverages and high-quality drip coffees. In addition, the cafe and bar offers everything for a traditional colazione italiana (Italian breakfast), such as pastries and small panini; afternoon snacks; and even aperitivo, including cocktails and wine.
Caffè Vergnano was founded more than 130 years ago as a small grocer's shop in Chieri, a small town at the foot of the Torino hills in the region of Piemonte. Still run by the Vergnano family, the company sources the highest quality coffee beans from around the world. Modeled after a traditional Italian cafe, our standing bar at Eataly Chicago offers a curated menu of espresso, macchiato, and housemade pastries that are best enjoyed in the tradition Italian style (read: consumed directly at the counter while standing for a powerful pick-me-up).
