Nice place to have a yummy crepe and coffee. I couldnt decide between the strawberry and peach one, so they offered to combine it into one. Coffee was great too, nice big cup.

French Press serves great coffees and a variety of foods, i.e. scones, crepes with a wide choice of fillings (yum) and other complements to a great cup of coffee

Nice coffee and a quiet place to enjoy several crepe options. The outside patio is quite pleasant on a warm morning. A wonderful place to meet your special friend and plan the day!

This place is always packed. They could use a larger space. It's a small stand alone building in front of a strip mall. I like coffee but sometimes a cup of tea is called for.
