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 0  Absolutely little to no effort on food preparation. Was not given an itemized receipt for what I ordered. I'm not sure how a coffee, sandwich, and a dried out cupcake totals to 30.00. I ordered the German chocolate cupcake and I got a carrot cake cupcake with German chocolate frosting. The sandwich was not toasted it was a cold crossiant with one slice of turkey, one piece of bacon, Guac, and ranch. I'm disappointed in the food, and expected more for the amount of money. They have a salad bar but to my amazement there wasn't a sneeze cover to cover the food. It's just pretty much out in the open.

    review rating 5  I was passing thru from San Antonio and I’d heard about this place, I just had to try it. I had the Red Velvet Latte and Crouque Monsieur. Both very delicious!! I’ll definitely stop by again when I’m passing thru again. Staff was great and I loved the decor in the place.

    review rating 5  This place is truly one of a kind. The atmosphere is so relaxing and makes you forget you're in Odessa. It's so beautiful! It has a coffee bar you can sit at or tables in the dining area. I got a normal latte and it tasted just like the ones I had in New York. They sure do know how to make a good cup of coffee! The owner was there and she's very friendly. Made sure I was taken care of and talked to me the whole time. You could tell she was from Texas because her southern hospitality shined! I think the only thing I would say that could have been better are the other "baristas/waiters/waitresses". I walked in without knowing what to do and the man wasn't very helpful. Saw a couple walk in right after me and they didn't know if they were supposed to sit themselves or sit at the bar or just get it to go and the man never once explained the process or was friendly with doing it. Just assumed they wanted to sit at the bar so took them there and they asked for a table and he said "oh sure". If the owner could teach the young people running the place how to be kind and friendly I think it'll be the best place in town!
