“Perfect Pizza Perfect Position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

We were staying for two nights in Millthorpe and on the second night we ventured down to the French Press Café. The name derives from a French coffee cup, plunger or a vessel that coffee is made in, but patented by an Italian, with examples displayed on the shelf at the rear of the café.
Another great thing about this venue is that you can BYO all alcoholic beverages without any corkage.
we ordered 4 types of pizza, even giving my brother-in-law the eye when he ordered a ham and pineapple, but I ate my words, it was a great pizza.
all of the pizza's are served on a wooden board with an under lay of a brown paper, good thinking, thin based and with plenty of topping without over doing it.
the coffee and the service was great and without any fuss.
recommend you visit this place next time you are passing through, but open only at night.

“Almost perfect!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We thought all our Christmases had come at once when we arrived in Millthorpe hungry and saw someone walking up the main street with an Allpress coffee in his hand! We were directed to its origin, where we ordered our usual difficult coffees and an amazing ham and pineapple thin crust pizza. The pizza was delicious, the coffee a little disappointing though, with what tasted like reheated milk. The strange taste of the milk completely overpowered the flavour of the Allpress coffee, no mean feat when you consider I have a double shot in a cup only 3/4 filled.

Service was brilliant, atmosphere wonderful and the pizza to die for. Just needs a little work on the coffee technique.

“Newer spot, definitely worth a go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

A walk past the beautiful Main Street found me looking through the shop front of this spot. Traditional glass frontage with butcher-type entrance, and signage remaining on the glass of its bygone days, to notice it's a chic and querky pizza cafe.
Great service, great coffee and pizza, and great atmosphere. If you appreciate pancetta - the pancetta pizza, topped with potato is my fave!
