Coffee continues to be the most efficient fuel for the human body's complex system of fuel injectors, auxiliary hearts, and flux capacitors. Fill up your flesh tank with today's Groupon to Empresso Coffeehouse, nestled in the historic landmark Empire Theatre on Pacific Avenue. The espresso experts and au lait aesthetes at Empresso Coffeehouse satisfy the caffeine callings of Stockton with an enticing menu of frappes, specialty espresso drinks, coffee classics, and tea. Stop by to bag a good-looking brew at the pick-your-own-coffee bar, or fill your food reservoir with a fresh smoothie or baked treat.
A movie-theater marquee beckons passersby to Empresso Coffeehouse. Bistro tables are scattered on the sidewalk where perhaps a ticket booth once stood. Inside, the cafe takes on the air of a lobby, but with a ceiling circled by neon uplighting and a concession-style stand where customers place their orders.
Here, coffee is the featured event, and cups of joe are brewed in one of three ways: drip, pour-over, or french press. For espressos drinks spiked with caramel or cinnamon, the baristas create artful images in the foam—of a heart, perhaps, or a leaf, or a rabbit giving a bald man bunny ears. They offer solid sustenance as well, in the form of made-to-order breakfast sandwiches, house-made pastries, and pizzas on ciabatta bread.
