From our Pastry Kitchen

Daily surprises and creative pastries come from our Pastry Chef Cassandra's capable hands. There is always something new on the way, from cookies to shortcrust pastries to sandwich creations.

Empire Cookies

Cookies

We bake a large variety of cookies in all sizes, with an overall flavour spectrum to showcase a wide variety of flavours. From Chocolate Wafers and Ginger Snaps to Anise Bites and Cayenne Hot Buttons, the careful recipe designs in our cookies all play up flavour of spices and added ingredients while minimizing sugar and fat.
