    No nonsense coffee at a great price

    The dirty snookie! The staff were really great and friendly!

    Christina Warfield · August 6
  • Jacob F.

    There is a green tea latté here with a special vanilla sweetness I've never tasted elsewhere.

    Jacob Ford · June 6
  • Jessica L.

    Ah the smell of coffee beans! Cute shop to pick up some fresh beans, teas, even Yerba mate. Not the trendiest shop but nice none the less.

    Jessica Latorre · April 8
  • Harumi U.

    Maybe the best beans selection in this neighborhood and possibly the cheapest as well. Much roomier than its competitors and staff are nice

    When your in the mood for some hot chocolate try the Snookie!

    If u like flavored coffee beans, they have a good selection, but don't expect high quality roasts. They have $3 morning special 12 oz coffee and scone. But the coffee tastes watered down.

    John Antos · November 6, 2014
  • Betina E.

    Lots of different whole bean coffees

    Betina Evancha · October 5, 2014

    Really cool drinks!

    Sells boxes of Yorkshire Tea and PG tips. Nuff said.

    Nick Varney · June 1, 2014

    Best iced coffee in the port authority area

    Gift baskets filled with coffee and exotic tea are made to order at Empire.

    From iced to French pressed, to flavored like bananas and peppermint, the menu treats here will perk up any afternoon.

    Go for the coffee.

    mister lister · April 18, 2014

    As far as tea goes, this looks like a good place to buy tea supplies, but if you go in for a cup of tea you'll get a Stash teabag. Disappointing.

    Ken Mohnkern · March 29, 2014
  • Vince R.

    Best selection of coffees and teas in midtown

    Vince Ramos · February 15, 2014

    Great selection, my favorite place to get a bag of beans. The Hoboken location is also good!

  • Vivie B.

    Gotta love a joint that has a beverage called the Snookie (hazelnut coffee with Mexican spiced cocoa)

    Vivie B · July 6, 2013
  • Daniel R.

    Great bulk coffee and tea, and best place to stop for a cup if your near PABT

    Daniel Ray · June 8, 2013
  • Clancy K.

    The latte is good. A lot better than the Starbucks across the street.

    Clancy Kornie · May 25, 2013

    The Mexican Cocoa is blowing my mind right now.

    Meghan Tierney · January 18, 2013

    Try the Colombian supremo Vienna roast!

    Layla Khoury-Hanold · November 17, 2012

    Tried red velvet chiller for the first time. Pretty great. Also the staff is friendly.

    Matthew Reich · August 30, 2012

    Try the Frozen Hot Chocolate - This so good it should be illegal

    Marcelo Pereira · June 20, 2012

    Found this great place a couple of months ago. Great selection and friendly staff. Make sure to ask them for a punch card if you get it by the pound. You buy 10 and then get 1 free!

    Kyle Bluth · April 2, 2012
  • Russell W.

    One of my favorite places to get coffee in the city! Amazing selection of beans as well!

    Russell West · January 23, 2012
  • Jake G.

    Columbian Continental is the way to go

    Jake Goodrich · September 15, 2011
  • Todd S.

    Like it strong? Mexican Italian is the darkest, deepest bean ever.

    Todd Sokolove · August 7, 2011
  • Tony C.

    Have yourself some Snookie--hazelnut coffee and Mexican cocoa. Very satisfying, which I imagine is the opposite of how you'd feel if you actually had Snooki.

    Tony Changho · May 19, 2011
  • Mike F.

    Ask the staff to fill your bag.

    Mike Fraietta · May 12, 2011
