Local inventive Cajun
restaurant and bar
The French Press1
Why locals love it
Intimate dining, friendly and casual atmosphere. The food is traditionally-based with a modern spin, and always uses high quality ingredients. Locals in Lafayette love brunch, and this is the best the city has to offer. Fine dining at night is another major feature of this restaurant, and there is a wide selection at the bar.
Why you should visit it
The French Press embodies the free and friendly spirit of the modern Cajun culture. The fact that this is a local favorite speaks highly of the venue in and of itself. Easily accessible by walking and bicycling, and on the Atakapa-Ishak Bicycle Trail.
There is often a long line for brunch, but the weather is usually nice and you may even catch a few local musicians outside!
