Relaxed atmosphere. Like to work here.
Great atmosphere, but the coffee could be better.
Good place all around. Good food - desserts and coffee for sure - but plenty other food items on the menu worth having. Great place for a date if you want to talk.
Pasta and cake. You can't go wrong.
Sunglasses and advil...last night was mad real
Focaccia eggs - yes! Also the texmex torta is pretty good.
The brunch menu here is awesome, lots of great options!
Whit my boy
Their coconut cake is amazing and they are half of on Mondays. I love their breakfast, the quesadiila one is my favorite.
Forenza is awesome and their Germany chocolate cake is Devine! !! Also their Italian cream cake is so rich and delicate. ..it's amazing
Try the frozen espresso drink!
The great chorizo in this dish puts Empire Cafe's Migas over the top!
The vanilla lattes are huge and come with great little sugar cookies. The French toast is amazing but so is most everything else on their menu. Enjoy!
You have to get cake. Always fresh. Always good.
Good food and relaxing patio atmosphere on the street
The sugar daddy latte is delicious. The focaccia eggs breakfast is amazing. Cakes are moist and absolutely delicious. Spinach salad with chicken is also great. Shortbread cookies with every coffee!
Build your own omelette with a nice variety of ingredients. Mimosas are great and strong, but can’t get them before noon on Sundays (thanks Texas blue laws).
Very mediocre. I won't be going back. Out food was cold & bland.
Big girl mimosa
Delicious café cubano!
Peruvia coffee is great!
The iced coffee is delicious, as is the mint limeade, which they middle with fresh mint for every order.
Good, simple, inexpensive, and casual. The patio is great for people watching!
Chicken roulade is very good. Very good portions too!
The breakfast quesadilla is delicious. The sugar daddy too
Try the Daily Pasta Special - Shrimp, portobello mushrooms, and spinach over fettuccine in a tomato cream sauce
Poor service and mediocre food. Meh.
So amazing! And I can take my dog there
Best day to go is monday when they have half priced cakes. My favorite is berry white!!
Try their caffe latte and their chocolate mousse cake.
The sugar cookies ROCK!!! Best chill spot for coffee, brunch or just hangin' with friends. #MadLOVE for this spot!
Amazing patio and great brunch! I'm a huge fan of their bloody Marys :) looking for a place to enjoy wonderful weather great food and drinks and a laid back atmosphere I def suggest empire
Broccoli & Cheese soup yes please!
Well they don't have my spinach & mushroom pizza anymore but you can build your own....
Shrimp pasta rather dry.
Cute place but the food could be served hotter
During happy hour on the purchase of a drink you get a free appetizer
Hefeweizen beer, serve here!!
Cakes are half-price on Mondays
Try the giant mimosa!
Best all day breakfast in Houston. House made dips and 12oz mimosas -all served up in a sunny boho courtyard....now that's a Crate idea!
Get the Milky Way to go and add whipped cream vodka.....supper yummy.
Get a Milky Way!
The fiorenza pasta is delicious. Very nice staff as well.
The breakfast tacos were really weird. Lettuce and eggs? Wtf.
