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  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  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 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.

    thumb Don McAllister
  • review rating 5  Went for breakfast and had the bacon and green chile quiche, lemon blueberry scone, and a "dirty" chai tea latte. It was all delicious and you can tell it's made from scratch. Perfect place to go for good coffee and yummy food!
