There was nothing particularly good or bad about the food; it was completely unmemorable. I had the granola with fruit and yoghurt which was OK but I was a bit surprised that the yoghurt was flavoured with vanilla. A plain yoghurt would have cut through the sweetness of the granola better. My husband's breakfast sandwich was quite nicely done but... More

This restaurant came "highly recommended" by a friend of a friend. Truthfully, I expected more and was disappointed. The food was adequate but tasty. We traveled from Beaumont Tx (about 1-1/2 hours) to get my taste of Cajun style food. I guess we should have travelled the three more hours to New Orleans. Lesson learned! I will give it another...

One of the best brunches I have ever had. Sweet Baby Breesus!!! (How I feel about it, also the name of an amazing item on the brunch menu).

This is the place for a great breakfast/brunch experience. I had the Sweet Baby Breesus and it does not disappoint! I love the atmosphere and the service was very good. This is a must stop when visiting Lafayette. You will be glad you did.

All in, all good. Just be aware it is noisy due to the hard walls and floors but other than that, go,go,go!!!

Very rarely go out to breakfast when I visit my old stomping grounds in Louisiana...but we recently sought out a breakfast experience and found our way to The French Press in Lafayette. The only complaint was that the signage was not visible enough if you did not know what you were looking for...but the food certainly made up for our... More

Today was our first visit at The French Press. We went for breakfast and, after eating our food, admitted we wished we could stay for lunch. The atmosphere and menu blend seamlessly. Rustic with a touch of chic. I ordered the Sweet Baby Breesus, a buttermilk biscuit slider with crispy bacon, a smashed fried boudin ball, and Steen's syrup. OH... More

Had lunch with the family here and it was great. They have breakfast and lunch selections, with so many good looking menu items, it made it hard to choose. We had pancakes, chicken & waffles, and some boudin and bacon biscuits. Everything was great!

Quiet, romantic night setting with rustic interior, attentive service, and excellent food. The Brussels Sprouts appetizer were great. My partner loved her eggs benedict. Great cocktails, too. Hard to imagine a more hip and romantic place for dinner in Lafayette. You might be able to find a touch better food, but you won't find a better place all around to... More

Driving from Houston to New Orleans last week we stopped 1/2 way in Lafayette because we heard the food was very good. I order the chicken and waffles for me was a little on the sweet side so early in the morning but my friend ordered the Cajun benedict. I can say it is one of the best things I've... More
