About Empire Tea & Coffee

Empire Tea & Coffee opened its doors in Newport, RI over Labor Day weekend in 2004.  Since then we've expanded our first location to become the largest coffee shop in Rhode Island with over 5,000 feet of seating, performance and meeting space.  In 2012 we added to our growing list of local and statewide awards with "Best Coffeehouse in Newport County" in Rhode Island Magazine and soon followed up by opening our second location in Middletown, RI.  
To meet the growing demand of many of our guests who visit Newport each year, we have added on-line sales to provide our great selection of products for delivery.  We look forward to serving you our every evolving products and sharing the passion of a perfectly steeped tea or brewed coffee with you.
Thank you for visiting.
