I arrived at French Press about 10:45 am on a Thursday. When I arrived there were quite a few people in the building. But I am glad I came in when I did because within a matter of 20 mins or so there was a wait. There is a constant flow of people coming in each day.
Looking around it's a very simple building with an old feel. I was thinking to myself hmmm, wonder how the food will taste, but as the old saying goes don't judge a book by its cover..
Overall my experience there was lovely. Everything that came to my table was served with perfection. The waitresses are very polite. Wonderful meal, we will definitely be going back again for brunch on a Saturday or Sunday.
