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  My favorite place now! I have been 3 days in a row now.. I get the hot Chia Latte(the BEST) & blueberry scones, brownies, & blueberry muffins for the boys. They are the best! The blueberries burst in your mouth! The decor is cute too. #goodbyestarbucks ���

We have had breakfast and tried the French toast and also Quiche and both were delicious and we have had lunch , the Spaghetti was great and fresh crisp salad, We have also jus stopped in for Coffee and dessert and they have a wide variety of sweets and all looks so YUMO. We had a Muffin and took some cookies to go 😁. I highly recommend this cute ,fun, delicious little place.

    review rating 5  This place has the best Americano I've ever had and the variety of menu options is insane (if you haven't tried an 1885, get over there ASAP). Starbucks who?

    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.

    review rating 5  Absolutely the best!! I'm such a coffee and espresso-Aholic and I'm so glad I know of a new place to get my fix! I'm also super impressed with their homemade menu and the ambiance, feels just like I'm in another place, like Paris!! I can't wait to empress a new client prospect by meeting them for a coffee or pastry here and introducing them to this Odessa downtown gem!!

  • review rating 0  Couldn’t have asked for a better spot for lunch! Adorable place, the chicken spaghetti special with its yummy unique sauce was fantastic, the 1885 was also distinct in its delicious taste, the two desserts we shared were spot on (apple walnut bread and upside down pineapple cake), and the service was exceptional! Can’t recommend them enough!!!
