“Expect the Unexpected”

New Orleans trained Lafayette native, Justin Girouard has teamed up with his wife Margaret to open a new staple in the Lafayette restaurant scene. Located downtown across from Parc Sans Souci, The French Press serves breakfast and lunch Tuesday through Sunday in a casual family friendly atmosphere. Also, dinner on Friday and Saturday nights allows Chef Girouard to showcase some his artistic and more technical abilities he honed at Stella in the French Quarter and in Southern France. Leaving the original floors and walls intact, the couple designed an intimate restaurant and bar that easily allows for the casual dining of the breakfast and lunch crowd as well as the white linen service of the weekend fine dining. The back of the restaurant is dominated by a concrete-and-steel cocktail bar designed by Margaret; overall the décor plays with the idea of French-style dining and the building's original use as a printing plant. Letter trays and old photos hang amongst and around full-sized replications of Picasso and Rousseau paintings.

The food was insanely good! The setting is very cool. Highlights were the the Cajun Benedict, the wild buffalo bill poboy(got the 1/2 and 1/2) and the sweet baby breesus. The kids loved the banana pancakes.

Outstanding food and atmosphere. Food service is a little slower than most, but well worth the wait if you have time. Great beverage service attention.
We started with the praline bacon as a shared appetizer and it was wonderful - perfectly cooked crispy with great texture and flavor.
My wife had an amazing shrimp sandwich with incredible fries while I had to try the Cajun Benedict. Everything had amazing rich flavors.
I will return again the next time I'm in Lafayette.

Delicious!! It's a few miles off I-10 but totally worth the detour! Get the praline bacon, it's incredible. Also the breakfast sandwich and cheese grits were to die for! I sat at the bar, and my server Mike was very attentive and friendly!! Wonderful experience.
