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 had been following their page on FB and decided to stop by. Aaamazing! I had their special of the day which was turkey meatloaf with red potatoes...delicious! Customer service was excellent. I told the waitress upon ordering that I wanted something without meat and she remembered when she brought me my side salad. I love how attentive the staff was and loved the ambiance of the place. I encourage everyone to choose local and try this place out, you won't regret it.
