April 19, 2018: After the YamChops cookbook launch event, Grace and I headed down the street to find a local cafe to grab a drink and chitchat. She found Empire Espresso which was a really cute and hipstery cafe that served coffees, drinks, and small bites.
They were about 30 minutes from closing which worked out for us since we weren’t planning on sticking around for long anyway.
We shared the Vegan Banana Bread was which really tasty! (I had actually wanted to order the Apple Cider but they didn’t have it.)
Empire Espresso had a really homey feel too with a small space for seating that overlooked College Street.
