Description: Presse Cafe is an absolute gem located in the business district of Petionville. The owner Magguie Rigaud sees to it that the food, presentation, service and atmosphere are all to perfection. Great place for a business lunch or Sunday brunch and everything in between. Highly recommended for large functions such as family reunions with capacity for up to 100 individuals. Great decor with Jazz motifs.

“Press-cafe on Fridays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Press cafe on Fridays is the place to be if you are in Port-au-Prince or Petion-Ville. Live band (ju Kan) plays retro Compas (Haitian Music) in a cool ambiance, bring your dance mood... good drinks are everywhere in Petion-Ville, but the best music is at Press Cafe on Fridays.

“Not my cup of tea, but good for kompa fans”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

To me, the downsides outweigh the positives of this place.

First, the good: good crowd, dancing, and music

Second, the bad: 400-500 gourde covers (super overpriced), 200 gourde prestige (most expensive I've found in Haiti), rude staff and bouncer, too crowded.

This place charges like it's a New York bar, but it delivers an experience that's nowhere near worth it. Lower the prices, improve the attitudes, and it'd be a great place

“Great brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

I had a wonderful family reunion brunch at presse cafe. Maggie is an excellent host and took care of us. The food was delicious and the staff was very responsive to a large crowd. My favorite dish was the lambi and drink was of course the Haitian hot chocolate.
