Eat, Drink and Breathe
This café has a relaxing air and encourages patrons to stay, enjoy their food or drink and unwind from the stresses of everyday life. Stylish tables and chairs are perfectly picked out to create a modern, inviting look in harmony with the artwork, lighting and music. In most Ottawa locations, Presse Café displays artwork by local artists for sale. Free wireless Internet and reading material make Presse Café a café made for life in the 21st century.

The Right Snack at the Right Time
Presse Café carries a wide selection of food items throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and snacks. Some of the popular breakfast items include muffins, bagels, croissants, fresh fruit salads, eggs, yogurt and granola cups. Lunch items include healthy salads, sandwiches, paninis and wraps at all locations. Some locations in Ottawa also offer hot foods such as lasagna, chicken dishes, cabbage rolls and various hearty soups. The selection of sandwiches alone is enough to offer daily variety, with options such as tahini chicken, grilled vegetables with provolone and smoked salmon. Pastries and desserts are available throughout the day, including an enticing selection of cakes and pies.

More Than a Cup of Joe
The selection of specialty coffees will definitely not disappoint a visitor to this contemporary café. Lattés, cappuccinos, moccaccinos, espressos and filtered coffee are standard cafe fare not overlooked by the baristas at Presse Café. In addition to the regular items, many traditional coffee drinks can be made with liqueurs or alcohol. If coffee isn't your drink, Presse Café carries several types of tea, hot chocolate, flavoured steamed milk and many iced coffee drinks. If you're looking for a meal on the go, Presse Café also blends up delicious and nutritious smoothies in a jiffy. But of course, if all you want is a good old cup of joe, Presse Café can certainly deliver.
