Well, I’m here to tell you that Empire Espresso is stiff competition and with Amandine Bakeshop right by its side, you are bound to fall in love.

Empire Espresso has been around for 7 years, with locations in Capitol Hill and Columbia City. Owners Ian and Natural put a lot of thought into the process of making coffee, from the type of drinks they serve to the employees and even the milk. This attention to detail makes all the difference. They make their cashew milk in house, turn that into a Chai latte and you’re good to go!

My favorite pastry? Their chocolate, carambar, sea-salt and hazelnut cookie.

When you visit, be prepared to get a slice of cake (featured: Buttermilk Cake with seasonal berry (mine was blueberry) and candied ginger). And if you’re feeling adventurous, try the macaron ice cream sandwiches!

Empire Espresso was also featured in Seattle Met Magazine for Best Coffee shop in Columbia City/ Capitol Hill. Treat yourself, grab a coffee and a pastry and enjoy their upstairs area.

Loving all things food, especially pineapple. I'm the creator of the food blog plentyofpineapples.com. I come from a diverse background of being Thai, Peruvian and Spanish so I love making meals that introduce people to cuisines and flavors they haven't tried before. I am heavily influenced by my mother who made home cooked meals for my brothers and I every single night growing up. To me, cooking and eating is a way to share stories, express culture and feed your soul with others. I also love to go out to eat, in Seattle, the food options are endless! You can catch me at a food truck or at a hole in the wall restaurant. I'm excited to share recipes and places to eat in Seattle with you! Follow me on Instagram @burrrittaney and visit my blog!
