“A great go to spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Coffe Emp. is a great go to place. Always good coffee and a huge menu selection. The bakery in the front is a great stop in spot as well.

“Marginal at best...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Luckily, the food was palatable because the service was horrible. Once we were seated (which was immediately as there was barely anyone else there), it took approximately 30 minutes to get our food. Our waitress didn't even bother to come and tell us why there was a delay. She didn't even bring our food out, a bus-boy brought it. We won't be going back.

“Why aren't there six stars??!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

The food here is really, really good. I had the veggie skillet with two sunny side eggs on top and it was amazing. The homemade muffins and scones - yum! Even the side of fruit was fresh and tasty. But the best part of this place? The coffee!!! Great atmosphere, kid friendly, super nice staff.

“Decent lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We came for a late breakfast at 10:30 on a Monday and were surprised to find the lunch menu only available. The coffee was convenience store strong as if it had sat for hours on a burner, and I do not mean French roast strong. The quiche was heavy with a soggy crust (as if rewarmed) but nice flavors. The accompanying house salad was dressed with a tasty vinagerette. The Greek salad with chicken was fresh. The molasses roll was simply a dark brown roll with no molasses flavor or anything special. Overall disappointing but willing to give breakfast a try next time.
