About Us


Empire Coffee + Pastry is a family affair. Started sisters Amy and Chrissy Kelsch, one a pastry chef and the other a coffee expert, we strive to showcase our love of casual yet high quality food and drinks. Our two cafes serve up a small menu of from-scratch breakfast pastries, sweets, and light lunch fare. Expect twists on classics, such as bacon, cheddar, and green onion muffins, grown up pop tarts, and salted caramel blondies. Sandwiches are served on freshly baked breads, and everything down to the condiments are made in house. We have proudly been serving the Northeast Minneapolis community since 2013.

We are proud to be an independent and locally owned business. Come by
and see what all the fuss is about, or read what others are saying about us:


Our Stinson shop is located in a converted Skelly gas station in Northeast Minneapolis. We’ve kept the industrial bones of the building and updated it with a bright and modern décor. When the weather is nice, we roll open the garage and set up our outdoor patio (where dogs are always welcome!)

Our Broadway shop is located inside the Highlight Center right near the intersection of Broadway and Central in Northeast Minneapolis.  The space is bright and cozy, perfect for studying, meetings or just grabbing some lunch or coffee to go.
