Great restaurant. Try the omelette patria. It was awesome. Service was great as well. Parking was a small problem but overall it was great dining experience.

“Great Location! Great Breakfast!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We have lived in Houston for the past 6 years and I can not believe we did not discover Empire Cafe before today. The location is great, right on Westheimer. The atmosphere is super relaxed and friendly. It reminded us of the multicultural spirit of Houston.
The Focaccia Eggs were the menu item of choice by the whole group today, and were phenomenal. The coffee selection was excellent also. First the Dark Roast, then the Organic Peru, on recommendation of another customer, were great as well.
The service was friendly and accommodating throughout the experience.
We will definitely return to try other menu items.

“Great Porch Cafe”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

This is a great and trendy place to meet your friends on the patio for brunch or lunch on a Saturday! You order at the counter and go back for your food when it is ready. The brunch menu was awesome for everyone at our table!
