Shortly after opening its 200th boutique, Switzerland’s Nespresso has finally opened its Soho store and café about a year after it first put up signage. Step past the hostess (yes, there is one), and your barista will give you a spiel about Nespresso’s 16 “crus” (those little flavor pods) and coffee machines, both of which line the walls and are available for purchase upstairs. Choose a cru, and she’ll use a cocktail shaker (also available for purchase) to make you a $6.50 iced cappuccino. Other drinks include the Liégeois (iced coffee over a scoop of vanilla ice cream) and the Iced Vanilla Caffe (coffee blended with vanilla ice cream and poured over crushed ice). The café also serves $9 plates, such as a grilled chicken salad, a smoked salmon Napoleon, garden pea velouté, mini cheese burgers, prosciutto panino, and a smoked turkey club, plus $7 desserts like a tiramisu, chocolate soufflé, Grom sorbet, and gluten-free macaroons.
