Empire Coffee

DRINK COFFEE FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY

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. 

NOT YOUR TYPICAL COFFEE SHOP

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.

Earth Rider 

Earth Rider Brewery crafts world-class beer with Lake Superior water and peerless ingredients. Earth Rider’s team is proud to sustainably produce beer for Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Earth Rider is the first brewery in Superior, Wis. to produce beer for the region since 1967 when Northern Brewing Company ceased operations. The brewery building was constructed in the late 1880s as a bakery, transformed to a “bakery supply” store during prohibition, and then lasted five generations as a beer wholesaler (Leamon Mercantile).

Earth Rider’s Cedar Lounge taproom sits adjacent to the brewery. The Cedar is a historic Northern Brewing Company tied-house tavern constructed in 1912.

Earth Rider is a member of the Bev-Craft network of independent breweries, comprised of a team of decorated brewers and brewing-industry professionals with a mission to keep independent craft brewing robust.

Douglas County Historical Society

The Mission of DCHS is to collect, preserve, interpret and exhibit artifacts, archival materials and photographs of the cultural, social and political history of the people and communities of Douglas County, Wisconsin.

Located at 1101 John Avenue, the home of the DCHS was built in 1925 for $35,000 and was known as the Vasa Temple. Newspaper articles of the time inform us that it was erected by the Svea and the Freja lodges of the Vasa Order of America, which was a Swedish American organization. Lidgerwood-Mundy bought the building in 1948 and has been there until recently, when they moved their engineering and accounting divisions to their main headquarters. They have maintained the building very well, keeping the wiring updated and re-roofing the building in 1991.

Not only does our Great Hall serve as our exhibit room but it is also home to the History Theatre a feature unique to DCHS in the upper Midwest. In addition the building’s 40 by 60-foot hall is also large enough to utilize for meetings, weddings, funerals, musical and theatrical productions.
