The pair arrived on a moped and threw eggs at the establishment, in High Street, at around 11.50pm.
During the alleged burglary, a nearby man challenged them to stop.
One of the riders pulled out a hammer and demanded his possessions, however.
He immediately got into his vehicle and tried to escape but was chased by the two men.
During the pursuit, the moped collided with another car and the pair ran off.
Police have seized a potentially stolen Grey Yamaha that they believe was being ridden in the High Street before the incident.
They are appealing for information, CCTV or dash cam footage. If you can help, you can call Loughton CID on 101 quoting incident 1471 of 17/12 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800.
No arrests have been made.Tags: Epping
