Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip is branching out with a café in Newport, Virginia.

The popular international bakery café chain has recently opened its doors at 12080 Jefferson Ave. in the Marketplace at Tech Center.

The brand’s first Newport News café is owned and operated by franchisee Raj Narla. It is the fifth Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip in Virginia and among more than 160 worldwide.

“My team and I are excited and proud to open Newport News’ first Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip,” said Narla. “Our warm, welcoming environment, free Wi-Fi and comfortable seating paired with our freshly baked cookies, specialty coffees and other delectable treats, create the perfect place to take a break from shopping, grab a bite to eat and relax. We’re thrilled to begin sharing our confections with guests here in the area and look forward to becoming an integral part of the community.”

The new café offers freshly baked cookies, customized cookie cakes, ice cream, smoothies and cold beverages. The café is also a lunch and dinner option thanks to its wide array of savory offerings, including panini sandwiches, wraps and flatbreads.

“We are excited to expand into another part of Virginia and we feel very fortunate to have Raj join our team,” said Ziad S. Dalal, President of Crest Foods Inc., the franchisor of Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip. “I have great confidence in Raj and look forward to working with him and his new café in the Marketplace at Tech Center.”

The café is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
