Unexpected French food in a small town

The crepes are quite delicious I tried both a savory one and a sweet one. Food other than crepes and a good selection of beverages

I will NEVER return for the fact their chef talks on his cellphone while making/cooking food for customers and I had to walk in to get half my order on a really slow evening. Whats the point of tipping if there is no service provided? Cashier is rude as well. Needs to improve customer service skills, because she lacks them.... More

My husband and I were looking for a Panera in Salem, OR and happened to see this restaurant. The French Press signs indicated they have "Coffee" and "Crepes". Crepes are one of my favorites so we decided to give it a try and we were NOT disappointed! They have a great selection of savory and sweet crepes as well as... More

Went in for a quick coffee meeting. Great French press coffee, like you'd expect. Had a cherry crepe. Really big and really sweet, would probably have a plain one next time. Very busy but service was efficient. Will go back.

I've been here a few times. I always get a cup of coffee with a different type of crepe each time. The cups of coffee are huge ! And they sell the cups in the store as well. I have never been disappointed with any of the crepes that I have had here at French Press. Highly recommend !!! Good... More

I'd never been in that type of place before. You have to order and pay for everything at the counter, wait for your drinks, but then a waitress brings any food you ordered to the table when it's ready. Food was good, not fantastic, but not bad. It was busy and I got the impression of being squeezed in, like... More

The quiche is very good...egg was light...crusty was flaky. We stopped by for lunch...busy place...service line moved fairly quickly. This is a very casual place...great for a cup of coffee and a snack as well.
