La Bodega del Barrio is a Mexican-themed cafe specializing in artisanal churro desserts. The cafe is located in the heart of Chicago and offers its bold sweets in a convenience store-themed space.

The elegant cafe was opened by Top Chef alumni Fabio Viviani and Katsuji Tanabe who joined forces to create a space catering to the Millennial consumer. This cafe is the ideal spot for those seeking high quality coffee and sweets that are worth breaking their diet over.

Featuring a menu of artisan coffees and churros in flavors like red velvet, Nutella and Fruity Pebbles, La Bodega del Barrio is a gourmet cafe with a casual flair. The Chicago cafe is also home to a taco menu for those seeking savory fare and boasts bodega-themed decor with some Instagram-friendly details like retro fixtures, and a slogan on its tiled floor reading "this must be the place."
