The Joe Polecheck Photography Gallery - Located at Empire Coffee (1204 Tower Ave.)

Come back every week to try new roasts and blends. We feature coffee from all over the country, so you never know what roast or blend will enliven your taste buds. All of our coffees are reasonably priced, as well. 

Why should you #JoinTheEmpire? Well, we put a lot of love into every cup of coffee we serve. That’s why our lattes are topped with little hearts. We’re also constantly on the lookout for new ideas to bring to Empire Coffee, such as our rose- and lavender-flavored sodas. Stop by now to try one of our creations for yourself. 


Our coffee tap house features plenty of fresh coffees you can’t find elsewhere in Superior. We don’t want our atmosphere to feel just like any other place. Empire Coffee resides in a building from 1892 that features high ceilings and Victorian Roman architecture. It’s a classy yet cozy spot to enjoy a great cup of joe and a good time with family and friends. 

Stop by today to see what we have on tap at Empire Coffee.

After a beginner's class at First Photo in Duluth, MN, countless YouTube videos, and hours of experimenting in my living room on my coffee table and cat, I find myself here.
