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 ���

    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  Customer service is great. Lovely bistro type feel and the food is great. Take the time to stop you won't regret it. Autumn Spice Latte, Ricotta Cookies and the Smoked Sausage and Potato soup are a must.
