The Empire Cafe is the best in Dulwich Hill, easily eclipsing The Last Drop across the street or the neighbouring Bar Valente. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food is excellent and the coffee even better. If you take a seat indoors or enjoy the al fresco dining, the Empire is an experience that cannot be missed. Compared to the other cafes in Dulwich Hill, Marrickville and Summer Hill, the Empire is fantastic. You always feel welcome and the service is as good as the food. If you are in the area, grab a seat and enjoy the Empire experience. You will be doing yourself a favour!
