I've been here 4 times this past week, and I'll be back next time I'm in town!

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.

I have been to The French Press several times over the years. It is mainly a coffee house with gelato as a notable feature. They have breakfast and lunch sandwiches, including paninis.

They have sugar-free as well as Gluten-free choices with regard to their Ice Creams, which are all home-made! Terrific coffee as well. Location is lovely with a view of the marina or you can just sit outside.

This is a great Coffee and Snack place at beautiful Cape Harbour! Saturday routine on the Deck overlooking the Marina! Always good to meet locals! By the way: Every Wednesday evening starting at 6:30 pm! The French Press Open Mic, hosted by Papa Tommy! Meet local musicians, performing!

We always go there for the ice cream and / or coffee. They offer a good variety, quality and taste of ice cream, high-quality coffee, as well as a variety of pastries. Ice cream scoops are quite expensive but worth the price. Nice location; inside and outside seating with a view over the marina.

Coffee is just ok, especially for a specialty coffee cafe. Their Gelato is good and their pastry is passable.

If you like a good capucino, expresso, great ice cream and my favorite thing "crepes" together with a nice view over the harbor - then you will like French Press.
