Empire Espresso

Empire Espresso

Coffee, tea, croissants, scones, sandwiches, waffles, house-made gluten free energy bars, house-made cashew milk, beer, wine, good people!

The new and improved gluten-free vegan waffle! Our first attempt had good flavor but was too chewy in the middle for some people.
This new version tastes really close to our regular waffle. We think it's a winner.
We're using our house-made cashew milk (cashews, organic date paste, vanilla extract, salt, and filtered water), Bob's 1 to 1 gluten free flour, corn meal, brown sugar, earth balance vegan butter, ener-g egg replacer, baking powder, baking soda, apple cider vinegar...i think that's it.
This waffle is made on our waffle iron with our regular waffles so it is definitely not celiac safe. If we had more room and power we would have a separate iron.

We now have a gluten-free vegan waffle as an option and it is delicious! You can order any waffle topping off our menu or come in on the weekend for our waffle bar and enjoy this new waffle.
The batter consists of our house-made cashew milk (cashews, date paste, vanilla extract, salt, filtered water), organic apple cider vinegar, bob's 1 to 1 gluten free flour, bob's gluten free oats, organic apple sauce, baking powder, vanilla extract, organic maple syrup, and salt. We hope you enjoy!

The Marcus Plate. Named after our good friend Marcus Harden who wanted practically everything on a plate. So we created this...house-made hummus, various Zoe's meats, cheese, tomatoes, curry kraut, britt's pickles, nuts, grilled bread.

Eat more waffles!
