French Press

The French Press sits in a unassuming building in a shopping plaza. The interior looks somewhat like a Starbucks, with a counter where all orders are placed and tables scattered throughout. At the heart of it, The French Press is a laid back coffee shop. However, a huge blackboard spanning nearly the entire length of the restaurant spells out to diners the delicious food that they're cooking up in back. After ordering, we opted for a seat on the small outside patio.

Food

The French Press does brunch right. I didn't know what to expect from this place but I was literally blown away by the quality and taste of the food.

The French Press has a plethora of different takes on the traditional eggs benedict. Recognizing this must be one of their specialties, I gave the Carnitas Bennies a try - black beans, fried tortilla, mojo sauce, red pepper relish, hollandaise and poached eggs.

The Carnitas Bennies came out with a beautiful presentation. Fried tortillas branched out from the center of the dish, almost like spokes, with lots of black beans and pulled pork at the center, topped with two perfectly cooked eggs. The yolks immediately broke and ran throughout the entire dish, giving these non-traditional breakfast ingredients a hint of breakfast flavor.

At the suggestion of the staff, I just had to order to the Zucchini Pancakes. Thank you for making me do so! I'd never seen zucchini pancakes on a menu before but I hope I see them again. Aside from being called pancakes, I would have thought I was eating straight up zucchini bread. The pancakes were loaded with zucchini and were very rich. So much so that I didn't even need to use any butter or syrup - they were perfect as is. Delicious

    It would take 40 min, and I have to meet someone in Broomfield later. Maybe next time I'll pay more attention and not be distracted by my excitement to eat here. You should try it some time. It is divine.

    woo hoo I made the list. Could someone clarify whether it is 8am or 11am? I see both times on this desc.

    June 12

    • Mya

      I changed the time to 8 am so we would be able to meet and have a chance to actually get a seat. The restaurant is packed by 9 am.

    Just beware--there is minimal seating (esp for large groups!) as I tried going there with just a party of 2 and there was a 45 min wait with no seating available on a Sunday at 12 (and it was rainy). I'd love to come (since I didn't try it that day) but I don't want to get my hopes up once again! :(

    This is a great little place - underrated because of outward appearance, I think. Hope I can make whatever date is chosen for this outing!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
