Empire Espresso is a cosy little coffee shop with plenty of sweet treats right in the heart of Little Italy. This queer-owned business is dishing out customizable bean blends and in-house baked goods like gingersnaps, rosemary lemon shortbread cookies, blackberry and lavender biscuits, plus so much more. Empire Espresso has a bright and airy colourful interior that’s accented by Moorish light fixtures and a La Marzocco machine that’s covered in a custom Moroccan tile–looking silkscreen adhesive. They also offer up fresh juices and a selection of local Social teas. Whether you’re a part of the commuter crowd or the computer crowd, Empire Espresso will have just what you’re looking for.
