Cafe at Venteux

Sometimes life is about the quick pick me ups, and at Venteux Chicago we embrace the need to have a quick bite and get going to conquer the day. That’s why our cafe is open from 7am-4pm every day. Whether you want to have a seat and quietly enjoy a sandwich on your lunch break, or need to be in and out with a quick coffee, we’ve got you covered. You’ll find that our cafe offerings are on the same level as our lunch, dinner, happy hour, and brunch menus, but designed in a way that lets you choose to sit down and soak in the ambiance or be on your way after a satisfying meal.

What are our options?

If you’re looking for something on the lighter side, the fruit and grains portion of our menu offers Avocado Toast, and Overnight Oats among other options. And let’s not forget about our Croissant Sandwich with Hook’s cheddar, bacon, and avocado. If a panini style sandwich is more your speed, ours boasts truffled turkey, hook’s cheddar, and aioli. If you’re really on a sandwich kick, our Venteux Burger features Gruyère fondue, frisée and mâche greens, local tomatoes, garlic aioli.

Okay, but I just need a coffee

Don’t worry, we’re getting there! Whether you’re looking for a quick double espresso, or an Iced Coffee to walk around with, our cafe offers only the finest, freshest coffee we could possibly offer. 

Quick drinks?

Whether you’re getting in from a long trip, or just want to have a cocktail to enjoy the scenery with, you’ll be delighted to know we have a “liquid breakfast menu” featuring Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s among others. We also carry On The Rocks Cocktails with several options to choose from including Old Fashioned, Cosmopolitan, Mai Tai, Aviation, Daiquiri, Margarita, and Jalapeno Pineapple Margarita.

About Cafe at Venteux 

Cafe at Venteux is a sanctuary of delicate moldings, speckled gold antique mirrors and floral textiles. Sunlight cascades through soaring 40-foot windows, while lush botanical murals cover the walls to create a romantic atmosphere for daytime dining and drinking. Guests are invited to settle into one of the café’s plush velvet booths or marble-topped tables indoors or soak up the energy of the city al fresco on the picturesque patio, which draws inspiration from the lively cafés of Southern France.
