Our Story

Kristel Tate and her daughter, Tabytha, long dreamed of opening a bakery and coffee shop; inspiration finally took hold when the pair took a trip to Paris in 2015.

In spring of 2016 they began remodeling the former Coast 101 building on Grant Avenue with a goal of opening The French Press Café in October of the same year. The shop opens early mornings through early afternoons, offering coffees and pastries along with breakfast like quiche and lunch like croque madames to people downtown and, hopefully, customers who travel to the area for the café.

    review rating 5  The French Press is a surprising change to the usual bill of fare found in Odessa. Sandwiches, & soup were fresh & tasty. The coffee was delicious & we were not robbed like at Starbucks for a cup of joe.

    review rating 0  Absolutely little to no effort on food preparation. Was not given an itemized receipt for what I ordered. I'm not sure how a coffee, sandwich, and a dried out cupcake totals to 30.00. I ordered the German chocolate cupcake and I got a carrot cake cupcake with German chocolate frosting. The sandwich was not toasted it was a cold crossiant with one slice of turkey, one piece of bacon, Guac, and ranch. I'm disappointed in the food, and expected more for the amount of money. They have a salad bar but to my amazement there wasn't a sneeze cover to cover the food. It's just pretty much out in the open.

    review rating 5  Went for breakfast and had the bacon and green chile quiche, lemon blueberry scone, and a "dirty" chai tea latte. It was all delicious and you can tell it's made from scratch. Perfect place to go for good coffee and yummy food!

  • review rating 5  Absolutely the best!! I'm such a coffee and espresso-Aholic and I'm so glad I know of a new place to get my fix! I'm also super impressed with their homemade menu and the ambiance, feels just like I'm in another place, like Paris!! I can't wait to empress a new client prospect by meeting them for a coffee or pastry here and introducing them to this Odessa downtown gem!!
