Second Empire Cafe


Monday – Friday 7.30am – 4pm
Saturday and Sunday 8am – 4pm


The Second Empire Café is named in honour of the iconic building’s architectural heritage and offers a seven-days-a-week service with a focused breakfast and lunch menu. The menu features larger-sized breakfast dishes which include classics and dishes with a sense of occasion, alongside smaller-sized breakfast offerings.

Lunchtime features an abundant choice of wraps, sandwiches and filled rolls, plus salads. A short, considered selection of ‘signature dishes’ includes a Thai sticky pork belly salad, romesco crumbed flathead and chips, and a Moroccan spiced lamb burger.

There is seating inside for 40 guests, outside for 20, and take away is well accommodated. Coffee is Genovese Fair Trade and weekends see breakfast served all day.  We look forward to welcoming you for a delicious meal one day soon!
