“Love going here for lunch”
Review of French Press Cafe

My friends and I have been to The French Press many times for lunch over the past few months.
The salads, and sandwiches are always so yummy. Wonderful flavours, fresh herbs, and meats. I just wish they would move into a larger space, as sometimes it's full, and we can't get a table :(

stopped in around 3 pm, had a perfect latte, and loved the kind, friendly atmosphere. Easily found a table to sip the complex flavours, as others came and went.

Ironically this is a cozy little cafe that almost from the start needed a larger space. It is small. They do their best to fit in enough tables but it feels crowded.

I have yet to try a lot of their fare as they sell out early. What I have had has bee very good. What I love is the coffee which is first rate. Their specialty coffee drinks are made properly which is always a plus in my book.

I hope to make it in earlier in the day so I can dry their muffins and other baked goods before they sell out. They are not open on weekends, for which I can't blame them, but the town could use a nice weekend cafe too.

I did think the few times I've been in that the service was indifferent. Perhaps that's more European and therefore authentic too.

I went to french press for lunch with a couple of friends. The space is very modern for the area, and well done but a little on the small side, could be a little bit more comfy. The food was decent for what we had, the menu is quite small so you have to be in the mood for a sandwich or soup. The service was pleasant although at times we felt the staff could have smiled a bit more and made us feel more welcomed, this is the reason we choose smaller independent cafes as apposed to chain restaurants. Overall it was an okay lunch for the price.
