Empire Review

This sedate café serves excellent espressos but is best known for its huge range of loose-leaf teas, including jasmine, rose, sunflowers, and calendula flowers. There are mixes such as Cooletta, a refreshing and fruity blend of rose hip, hibiscus, papaya, blackberry leaves, and mango. Food includes a full breakfast menu, bagels served all day, filled rolls, crêpes, salads, and the Empire's signature two-in-a-bowl soup, its flavors changing according to the weather. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.
