Our café is miles above all others
(well, 1,000 feet actually).
What better way to take in Chicago than relaxing over a coffee or wine at our award-winning Lavazza Espression café. With cuisine designed by 3-star Michelin chef Ferran Adrià, and our award-winning ambience, it’s the perfect place to bring guests. Here’s a hint for locals - buy our Sky High Annual Pass for just $79 to enjoy unlimited entry to 360º views, 365 times a year and 10% off at the café. (Admission fee applies.)
Our coffees are as famous as the view.
Wrap your lips round an Espesso™, the coffee you can eat (TIME magazine named it one of the best inventions of 2006!). Light and mousse-y, it's like eating coffee clouds.
Seriously, Chicagoans come up here just to enjoy coffee and read the newspaper with our FREE Wi-Fi service. After all, it was Luigi Lavazza who invented the concept of the blend, the complex art of mixing coffee of different origins, in 1895. So it’s a real caffeine high!
Come up for a low key drink. Stay for a high impact view
Staggering views demand a stiff drink! But never fear, we’ve just added a new way to help you unwind – we now serve beer, wine and spirits in our Lavazza Espression café.
Enjoy the spectacular floor to ceiling views while sipping on a glass of wine, beer or one of our gorgeous cocktails. And with our delicious Italian appetizers, why not have a bite to eat too? Check out our bar menu.
Our café menu is a cuisine high
The three key factors to fine food are fresh, fresh and fresh! Each morning we bake melt-in-your mouth pastries, cookies and Frittatta Panino – an Italian omelette. Then, during the day, if you feel like an insalate (salad) or grilled Panini, we’ll make it right in front of you.
Even our menu is fresh and innovative! Check it out. That’s because we collaborate with famous chefs like Ferran Adrià and Moreno Cedroni to enhance your epicurean experience. (It’s easy to find our café…just follow your nose!)
Down to earth food for kids
Got milk? Kids all over the world love the basics - and when you've got a gang to feed you don't want it to cost a fortune. So we have lots of favorites like grilled cheese sandwiches, chips, cookies, gelato - even milk!
We also do boxed lunches for school trips and parties for aspiring astronauts or princesses in the sky. And the good thing is, you can enjoy your coffee while the kids take in the sights with their own interactive multimedia Sky Tour!
Planning an event? We cater for every taste
Few venues can compare with the magnificent views and equally impressive food at JHO. We cater for private events such as kid's birthdays or wedding and corporate events such as dinners for 200 or cocktails all around.
You can chat to us and we'll create your own menu, or here are a few menu and drinks packages to get your mouth watering.
