New tables outside at Café Presse

Here at Café Presse, we have taken the City of Seattle up on its offer to allow restaurants to use curbside parking spaces for Temporary Sidewalk Cafes. Starting today, we have additional outdoor seating to better enjoy the sunshine. This additional outdoor seating will disappear at the end of the summer, so come by and give the new tables a try!

Happy Birthday Café Presse!


Café Presse first opened its doors on this date in 2007. Since that time it has been our pleasure and honor to welcome our neighbors, our guests and our friends everyday, from morning coffee to the last nightcap way past midnight. Café Presse has reopened for limited days and hours. However, we look forward to being open more and more as the summer progresses and finally getting back to what we have always done: being their for you everyday all day. Cheers!
-Café Presse
