We made a *very* micro batch of the @philandseb Costa Rica we are currently featuring and holy moly, we are going bananas over it. A sweet baby with a serious left hook. 6$ a bottle and going fast! #coldbrew #empireespresso #coldempire #toronto #torontocafe #cooldownbaby #boxingterms? (at Empire Espresso)

Okay everybody. This is Manny. He’s the newest addition to the #dogsofempire family. He’s so sweet it’s almost painful. If you see him in the neighbourhood, say hi to Manny and his person Sarah! #littleitalytoronto #dogsofinstagram #puppy #puppies #puppiesofinstagram  (at Empire Espresso)

Congratulations (belated) to our dear regulars Erin and Alex! If you have ever met these two or had any sort of exchange with them in the world, you will know that they are the best kind of people. High fives to this amazing couple! #regram from @_obstalat  (at Empire Espresso)

We’re bopping to this jam while we close up for the night. Georgie Fame was pretty young in this recording so I think this drummer might have been his dad. Gotta have a chaperone. #goodnightlittleitaly #georgiefame #blueflames #bopping #dads #gottahaveachaperone (at Empire Espresso)
