Full Empire State (Cafe) review here
I had a good experience dining at the former Empire State (Cafe) outlet at Iluma, and this new outlet carries the torch well.
Ambience is still styled after American road side diners, with large comfortable seats, and quirkey decor.
Service is friendly and attentive, and food is served quickly.
Food portions are as large as ever, and still taste pretty good.
I had a craving for Root Beer Float, and the Empire State (Cafe) version didn't disappoint... Large mug of root beer, topped with a generous helping of quality vanilla ice cream... Extremely satisfying!
The Empire State Hot Dog comes with generous toppings of cheese, chili sauce, mustard, chili beef sauce, and onions. The sausage was quite long, at 12 inches (!), but is factory made, which resulted in a lower overall taste. The 10 inch bun would have been better if it was toasted slightly.
