Great service but my vanilla almond milk latte was burned and way too hot, it was also missing the vanilla. Coffee went straight into the bin. So many places just have no idea on how to make coffee with plant milks, empire is no exception.

Smooth, strong (without being bitter), hot coffee. Almond milk (almond breeze for keto drinkers) and macadamia milk available.

We've been into Empire Coffee a couple of times recently - have had a great experience every time we've visited. The coffee they serve is always amazing and they have a good selection of cabinet food. The staff are happy to chat and answer questions about coffee too, even though they're often busy.
