Some of the best locally made bread and appetizers to be had here. The wine choices are lovely and affordable. Hard to believe there is a venue of this caliber in the Coos Bay/North Bend area. Visit and become a believer!

A wonderful surprise! Found the Empire Cafe a few years ago. Each year we visit the Coos Bay area for a trip down memory lane....we lived here many years ago when first married. The Empire Cafe is a great addition and another reason we look forward to our annual trip.
Where to begin... the food, the service, the baked goods, the warm welcoming atmosphere all play into what makes this cafe so special. Their menu is full of great seasonal choices including some amazing home made soups. A nice selection of wines to go along with your meal. The Empire Cafe is delightful, we are so glad we found them, you will be too!

Elegant, clean, cozy atmosphere where the food is always always excellent. The service is friendly and generous. Simple menu selection but they will adjust when possible. Prices are reasonable, in fact inexpensive for such quality, fresh food. And, you can purchase the best bread I've ever eaten, plus desserts, cheeses, and wines to take home.

An amazing boutique restaurant and bakery, perhaps a little out of the way, but well worth
the effort to find it. The owner is extremely knowledgeable in wines and offers an incredible wine list. The homebaked breads are heavenly, fragrant with perfect texture. By the way, it's only open Wed-Friday for dinner, Saturday you can pick up wine and bread.
My husband and I couldn't resist both having the lambshanks on a bed of white cannilini beans with veggies and succulent brother. Homemade eclairs? Oh, yes, the real deal. The chefs are from the local culinary school. Unbelievable. I can hardly wait to return!
