Our Story

Kristel Tate and her daughter, Tabytha, long dreamed of opening a bakery and coffee shop; inspiration finally took hold when the pair took a trip to Paris in 2015.

In spring of 2016 they began remodeling the former Coast 101 building on Grant Avenue with a goal of opening The French Press Café in October of the same year. The shop opens early mornings through early afternoons, offering coffees and pastries along with breakfast like quiche and lunch like croque madames to people downtown and, hopefully, customers who travel to the area for the café.

    review rating 5  Food is made fresh daily. Great service, Wonderful business hours, giving you enough time to grab something healthy after work on your way to a meeting, school event or just to chill at home without messing up the kitchen. Love the décor and atmosphere. #DowntownOdessa

  • review rating 5  The French Press is a surprising change to the usual bill of fare found in Odessa. Sandwiches, & soup were fresh & tasty. The coffee was delicious & we were not robbed like at Starbucks for a cup of joe.
