About Us

Sisters Chrissy and Amy Kelsch are the owners of Empire Coffee + Pastry. Before joining forces for their family business, Amy spent time in Chicago where she trained at The French Pastry School, and Chrissy went to work for B+W Specialty Coffee in Minneapolis. After many years in the industry, the girls hatched a plan to create their own Empire. In December 2013, that’s exactly what they did.

Chrissy will greet you from behind the counter and take your order
Amy will be the one in the back chopping, kneading and pulling fresh pastries from the oven

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 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!)
