Impeccable vibes and great food. My dad said it was “one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time.” A great way to kick off move-in day! We came on a Saturday morning around 9:35 and got seated indoors immediately. Service was helpful, friendly, and quick. Drinks came very quick and food fifteen minutes or so after that. Atmosphere is convivial and busy without being overly loud, and the decor/architecture is gorgeous. Highly recommend!

Loved our experience at Press! We got there right when they opened on a Saturday and I would say it filled up within about 45 minutes. Our server was so friendly as was everyone we interacted with. They made sure our waters were always filled, as well as that we were satisfied. I highly recommend the Toasted Mallow Latte (it was a seasonal special). We tried four crepes - all delicious, my favorite was the classic, but I loved the variety of savory and sweet options as well as a few other things on the menu. Awesome location in a cool district downtown.

Fun atmosphere, both outside and inside. Menu gives ample selection to both savory and sweet options for your crepes. Coffee menu is wonderful. Went for brunch and their cocktail menu was inventive and fun. Definitely a great spot to know and frequent with friends. They open early so we have gone after a night shift of work.

The crepes here are outstanding! Not only is there a large selection of typical sweet crepes, but there’s also a great variety of savory crepes. I thoroughly enjoyed the Avocado Club Crepe! It was delicious and I’ll certainly get it again! I also love the airy, bright atmosphere and the European, art nouveau design. This restaurant is a gem.

As a crepe connoisseur I’ve been wanting to visit Press for a while. The menu has something for everyone. The service was exceptional, the space immaculate and beautifully decorated, also there was a good amount of space inside. The tables weren’t too close together which is important for meetings. There was also a lot of covered outside seating. This is great for groups or a business lunch. You order at the counter so it is easy for everyone to get what they want when they need it. Can’t wait to eat here again! Thank you to Mica and the rest of the friendly and welcoming staff.

Press is positioned below the infamous Lucky Strike water tower in the Tobacco district. I arrived alone during brunch hours on a Sunday and was able to find two available seats at the bar. I took one and ordered their seasonal marshmallow latte. The space was packed out the doors and into the patios when I arrived, plenty of people working the space, you can tell it’s very much a local favorite. The latte was unlike any that I’ve had before, both in visual appearance, texture and taste. That was fun. Oats are a great way to see how a space makes something so simple their own; I ordered the pear and strawberry bowl with two eggs on the side, over-medium. What felt like a small eternity sipping on my latte waiting for the oats, scraping the marshmallow foam out of the saucer, I was finally presented with breakfast. Beneath the roaring room of chatter and clanking dishwater, I beheld my fare and muttered, “oh my god.” Best oats I’ve had in a long time. The marinated pears mixed into the cream. The oats were cooked to perfection, similar texture to the soft crunch of brown rice. Presentation, taste, texture. The eggs I ordered on the side were seasoned perfectly as well. I would return here with a friend and explore the potato waffles and crepes.

Great place for breakfast (all day) and lunch or an early dinner (most weekdays it closes at 7). There’s a brunch on weekends. Their specialty are the Crêpes with a wide variety of fillings, savory and sweet, all delicious There’s also options of salads and sandwiches. Coffee and cocktails are awesome. Press is a must for those who want great food, nice atmosphere, impeccable friendly service at a reasonable price.

Smooth drinkable coffee and a delicious crepe. The filling combination was a great combo of veges, herbs and eggs. It was large enough for two to split. It's light and airy inside with great views of the American Tobacco Campus across the street. Will go back.

Never disappointed. I've stopped by several times for coffee or the amazing Purple Rain drink, which is consistently refreshing. Brunch choices here always satisfy! Great gluten free options--the hash brown waffles will make you a fan.

Loved their savory crepes! I got the B’Crepe and my friends got the Farmers Crepe (?) and another savory crepe, but they were all delicious. I’d love to try their special coffee or teas next time. It is a really lovely ambience, however we did go on a Saturday morning and it was incredibly crowded. This was expected but I wish we were able to stay longer! They didn’t allow us to stay and do work because of how busy it was, which is okay. The service was good despite it being so busy! Will definitely come back on a less busy day to try more of their menu.

Loved the ambience of this place! Their iced coffee was amazing and i recommend trying the cherry blossom iced late if you guys have the chance. I had the pleasure of trying bother their savory and sweet crepes. The quality of their ingredients is great and I enjoyed every bite! I can't wait to come back and try their cocktails.

Press is one of my favorite restaurants in the Triangle. They have the best Caesar salad that I have EVER had. When I go there, my kids try to eat my entire salad. This says a lot when they have Nutella crepes on their plate as competition. The staff has always been very accommodating and super welcoming. The restaurant also has great ambience. It is light and airy inside and they have a covered patio outside.

My department submitted a complicated 20+ item order with dietary modifications and allergy meals, and the Press team absolutely crushed it. The whole team was so accommodating, so friendly, so responsive from the owner down to the folks working the registers. They handled minor points of confusion with grace and maintained total professionalism through the whole ordering and pickup process. And if that wasn’t enough, the food was completely delicious and all requests were honored - our team was completely thrilled. Highly, highly recommend.

Been here multiple times and it has never disappointed me. The South by Southwest crepe is my ultimate fave. I love how all the ingredients blend together. The creaminess with a hint of spice. If you plan to have brunch arrive a little early or it might be lunch by the time you get seated. This place gets packed.

It may not be the cheapest brunch option, but the food is delicious. They have crepes and hash brown waffles that are extremely well balanced in flavor. Vegetarian options are well balanced to contain protein and good flavor. If you go while it's still in season, they make a delicious apple cider and green tea latte.
