One of the new additions to the menu: potato hash with mixed sautéed mushrooms.

The team at The Empire cafe in Mullum like to find ways to make it fun. The quirky decor featuring hip hop and movie culture references gives a hint of the eclectic mindset at work here. The influences are many, and the vibe is both comfortable and welcoming. There are no pretensions here. 

The recently revamped menu is also diverse in its offerings. Working with the idea ‘a little bit naughty and a little bit nice’, it caters to your cravings for a delicious indulgence just as readily as a desire for something that is nourishing and good for you. 

New additions to The Empire’s menu include brunch classics like eggs benny, and delicious modern inventions like the potato hash which comes served with mixed sautéed mushrooms, poached eggs, caramelised leek and cashew puree, fennel and herbs. 

Something The Empire has been known for in recent years is the quality and range of its burgers. The selection has been expanded with new vegetarian and vegan options: crumbed mushie, and pulled jackfruit. There are lots of extras to pimp your burger and a great option to go ‘naked’ – swapping the bun for extra salad. 

Among The Empire’s lunch options there is now a range of burrito bowls. These joyously colourful and nourishing meals include a tasty combination of Mexican spiced beans, corn, smashed avocado, rice, fresh salsa, greens and chipotle mayo with your choice of chicken, pulled beef, or pulled jackfruit. 

The other treats that The Empire is known for are all still there and too numerous to list, but now that it’s getting warmer, keep their house-made coconut ice cream and vegan sundaes in mind.

Friday nights

Bringing the fun to Mullumbimby on Fridays is also on the agenda for The Empire. They are staying open for Friday knock-off happy hour 4–6pm with discounted cocktails, wine and Yulli’s tinnies. Following happy hour they are staying open to serve dinner, drinks and more treats to help you kick off your weekend vibe.
