Paid a visit to The French Press, located at Figueroa and State Streets in Santa Barbara, CA. This particular slender, yet long location has always had a coffee shop of some sort occupying it. The new occupant is a nice refreshing take on the modern, upscale coffee shop. The light colored walls, mild hard wood floors and dark hard wood counter have a nice comforting feel. Even the metal tables and chairs out front with desert scape plant center pieces offers a sharp contrast to the cozy interior, yet is inviting to the eye.
While this establishment does not offer any plush seating, the high quality coffee, yummy pastries, and soothing atmosphere definitely make up for it. I will gladly spend more time enjoying their offerings and hope you will too!
