Pressroom is located on Bentonville square, which is a cool place to visit all by itself. The restaurant has the look and feel of a loft in an industrial building. Since it sits on a corner, two full walls are nothing but windows. Inside, the two story black industrial ceiling with exposed pipes and structural columns set the tone. Matte black accents and iron shelves add to the atmosphere. The central bar fills the room with seating all around it.

Service is okay. Everyone is polite and helpful, but it's slow. There are long wait times to get a seat. The wait for a server to arrive is long. Coffee and drinks were late or forgotten. Refills were far and few between. The food took almost 20 minutes from the time we ordered to when it arrived. Pressroom is not the place to be in a hurry. Onyx Coffee is right next door. It's a great option to kill time while you wait.

The food is wonderful. Every menu item is marked to let you know what's vegan and gluten friendly. My favorite dish was the Pressroom Granola. The coconut yogurt and roasted coconut shavings mixed with the honey, granola and fruit was just divine. The smooshed avocado toast (their words not mine) is nicely done with the cherry tomatoes and a touch of heat from red pepper flakes. The Press-trami Hash is interesting and different. It's not a traditional hash. I would say it's closer to a dry stew with large chunks of pastrami, potatoes and onions. Kudo's to the cook for getting the egg just right. It broke open and ran over the hash when the yolk was poked. Even the cucumber slice in the water pitcher made it refreshing and crisp. The sticky bun was good, but probably or least favorite item. The dough was a touch dry and the caramel drizzled over it was a little too chewy. It stuck to our teeth making it difficult to eat.

I really like Pressroom. We will be back. It's very good. If they fixed the service, I could see this being five stars that might make the higher prices a little more palatable.

The atmosphere was lively and friendly.
The Bloody Mary was well seasoned and delicious. The huevos rancheros were good. The service was attentive - not rushed which for Sunday Brunch was just right. I would recommend. There were many choices on the menu I’ll be back to try.

Sadly, they did not have oatmeal that day which was what I was looking forward to. My eggs came cold but the waiter was so nice so it made up for the cold eggs

Want some decent food and have your kiddos in tow? Well look no farther, The Pressroom will do just fine. Very long and spacious booths await your tired rear, way bigger than the norm. The energy level and more importantly noise level are both high, not annoyingly, but help to fade out your own loudmouth monsters. Great specialty cocktails start you off nicely, I had the old fashioned, yummy. The food is served quickly and tasty too. Innovative kids menu is welcoming. The view of the square downtown is amazing through the floor to ceiling windows. Would definitely return here, have a go yourself!
