BomboBar is Bar Siena's Dessert Walk-up Window which serves bomboloni (hole-less Italian doughnuts), coffee, breakfast sandwiches, gelato, hot chocolate & more. Located on Green Street, tucked into West Loops' Bar Siena, the sweet side-concept is open from 8am to 11pm daily. BomboBar is the perfect stop for your morning walk to work or late-night sweet tooth. Each item is handcrafted from scratch and offerings change seasonally; savory or sweet, a variety of flavors are available to satisfy any palette. Don't miss the Instagram-famous "Hotter Chocolates" - a loaded hot chocolate topped with a doughnut, biscotti, sprinkles, and more. Hotter Chocolates come in two flavors, S'mores and Funfetti.
