Café Presse is from a French viewpoint kind of a cross between what they call a Bar, a Bistrot, a Café and a Brasserie but we would put it in the latter category. The food is excellent but the atmosphere is a little too quickie/bar like for our tastes. We have eaten there several times and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere in the front room. The back dining room is not someplace I would want to eat – it lacks character and like most backrooms in Seattle restaurants just doesn’t feel good. An especially nice feature is that this restaurant is open early for breakfast in the French style!
