Halloween is just around the corner, and who doesn’t love a little bit of spooky time! We’re of course talking about how it gets dark a little bit earlier before we roll the clocks back, and how the temperature drops from t-shirt to jacket conditions in the blink of an eye! When you’re walking down the windy streets of Chicago, you might want to drop into our cafe at Venteux to get your spirits lifted with our new latte of the month: Orange Mocha!
Halloween season in Chicago is a magical time, and we wanted to have a beverage that puts you in the Halloween spirit! Not only is orange the primary Halloween color, it’s downright delicious in a latte. If you’ve never had the pleasure of orange zest in a warm and frothy espresso drink, then we’re here to tell you that it’s a treat and not a trick. Swirl that foamy goodness in with the classic taste of mocha, and you’re not going to believe your tastebuds. Who knew the spookiest time of year could taste this amazing? You’re going to wish we served this year round because we’re giving the pumpkin spice folks a run for their money!
What you need to know
Where: Pendry Hotel Chicago, 224 N Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60601
When: 7am to 4pm daily.
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 else can I get to drink?
We’re just like any other café (except we’re the best), so you’ll be pleased to know that we offer a wide variety of coffee drinks. From a double espresso, to a sparkling iced espresso, for your dark roasts… or a nitro cold brew that packs a punch if you just got in from traveling, and need more than a pick me up for the full day of meetings you’re about to get into. Or maybe you went a little too hard last night, and need some hair of the dog to start your weekend off right! We offer “liquid breakfast” in the form of bloody marys, mimosas, kir royales, and bellinis!
So really, there’s something for everyone, and if you want to treat yourself then stop by and we’ll make it happen!
Tis the season!
No we’re not talking about Christmas, but be sure to keep on checking in with Venteux Cafe as we continue to explore a new latte every month. Or if you’re just a black coffee type, we’re not going to stop you from relaxing with a house blend before you set out to conquer the day. So when you’re ready to step out of the cold and into the warm embrace of a handcrafted latte or cold brew, we’ll be waiting and ready to get your day started the right way!
