First time at the French press! Went In for the gelato, which was amazing, and stayed for open mic night entertainment! Finished with a great cup of coffee! Must try.

This is across from Fathoms and owned by the same people. Is a coffee shop that is more than a coffee shop. Along with breakfast items coffee and bakery goods, they offer the best homemade Gelatto in all of Cape Coral. It's made right on the premises. You get to have a taste of any flavor. It's really hard to... More

The Nutella crepe was a bit thick. My husband said his veggie crepe was bland. Located in an upscale harbor/shopping/outdoor mall. Trendy but not special.

They have a nice selection of specialty coffees, tasty treats, ice cream and teas. They offer a quiet spot for surfing the internet or reading a book. This is a must do in Cape Coral

We visit here several times when in town - great gelato, pastries, espresso and a very nice area to enjoy Florida by the boat docks. You must try this!

Great place to start your morning. This is where RunaGrounds used to be. Remodeled and looks great. Very comfortable inside, dockside patio seating is awesome also. Breakfast foods including breakfast sandwiches, lunch options, great coffee, and of course gelato/ice cream. They offered free samples almost every time we walked in the door. They remembered our morning drink from one day... More

I've been here 4 times this past week, and I'll be back next time I'm in town! The French Press proves it's not the name on the door (it's changed from my last time) but the people, coffee & food INSIDE that makes a great eatery! I've been alone every time I'm there, and I've been welcomed into a group... More

Under one roof is a tremendous selection of gelato and Norman Love chocolates. The chocolate creations are indeed confections - beautiful and delicious. The gelato is a great compliment. Enjoy seating inside or out but come and enjoy.

We have visited Cape Coral five times now on holiday and always call at The French Press. We have had coffee, milk shakes, ice cream and scrumptious cakes over the years and still go back each visit. You can sit outside overlooking the gorgeous Marina if you wish. I would recommend a visit if you are in the area of... More
