Cafe de la Presse was across the street from our hotel, so we had brunch here one day, and it was a great choice. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was great.

I have been here several times and have always had good experiences. I prefer this place for breakfast, but lunch is good too. Their croissants are delicious, and the coffee is good. The staff are always friendly and the service is pretty quick.
