The meal will also include French country wines selected by wine manager Joanne Herron. It’s not about connoisseurship or solemn swirling and sniffing. Instead, come celebrate the best that the season has to offer and the simple pleasure of gathering together with good things to eat and drink.  We hope you can join us.

Be a part of “Check, Please” filming at Café Presse


Café  Presse has been picked to be a part of the new season of “Check, Please” on KCTS, Seattle’s PBS station.

If you haven’t seen the show before, basically it works like this:
Three local food lovers are picked to be featured.  They each nominate their favorite dining spot and then they each eat at the other guys favorite to see whether or not they agree.  Afterwards, they discuss how they liked each place…is that clear?

Anyway, here at Café Presse, we are very pleased to be featured and are hoping that all three diners will love what we do.  The three diners have already been in to eat and we are waiting anxiously for their verdict.

You can be part of the show when “Check, Please” films at Café Presse this Wednesday, May 7, 2014.  The crew will be filming at Café Presse from noon to 2pm.  We hope you will come by and be part of a lively packed dining room enjoying lunch that day.  Then you can look for yourself on the show when it airs on Thursday June 19th, 2014 at 7:30pm.  Here is a complete schedule of episodes and the featured restaurants.
