French Press serves up large slices of a large variety of cakes and other treats. The quality and taste are good and the staff is friendly and helpful. Price is a bit high.

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.
