The jeans are a bit skinnier on this side of 12th Ave., but on Sunday mornings, there are few finer pastimes than reading The New York Times while scarfing down a croque monsieur and sipping on a Caffé Vita Americano, which the staff will happily refill with drip so you can finish Frank Bruni's latest rant. And Cafe Presse stays open serving its casual French bistro fare until 2 a.m., so if you're more of a night owl, a petit omelet and pommes frites with your Tanqueray martini is sans souci.
Grant manages the bar, Steph manages the bar stool. We couldn't be happier living/working/drinking/eating anywhere else. Wonderful, affordable food, awesome staff, friends and customers local and international and "fancy" drinks (hee hee)...we heart Cafe Presse.
If you can't find me, chances are I'm here. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night drinks, great staff, comfortable atmosphere... I can't say enough about it. Like everyone else who has ever walked in, I'm in love with Cafe Presse.
Diminutive 10-sided orange plastic-topped containers decorate every table with a design-conscious sense of condiment self-sufficiency and, decidedly, the feel of a very French cafe. With matching orange-lidded salt and pepper shakers keeping company with them, the three-ring condiment caddy is all you need to dress your croque-monsieur at Cafe Presse just as you like. An extra miniature spoonful of Dijon mustard tucked between the gruyere-crusted top and the béchamel-laden ham: Perfect.—Adriana Grant
