    A beautiful lil French cafe in downtown SF. My friends and I totally enjoyed our time together there - definitely a great choice. Food and service was great. We sat and chatted way overtime, but no one ever made us feel like we had to leave (no one was waiting for a table). We all agreed we would definitely come back to Cafe de la Presse!!

    This is the most authentic feeling French restaurant I’ve been to in a long time. The food was amazing and it was a great brunch spot! Delicious bloody Mary’s and over the top eggs Benedict.

    We went for an early dinner - as this is mostly a breakfast and lunch place (takes reservations only until 5:45pm), it was pretty quiet. The setting is beautiful, lots of interesting classic touches along the walls. Service was impeccable, with friendly and efficient servers, and the food was delicious, wonderful French cuisine prepared very well!

    Feels like you’re in Paris at this cafe. The view is nice and bright while people watching and sipping latte. Dined here for restaurant week, good portions some items were house-made. Enjoyed the warm crème brûlée.
