Fresh from the press coffee and lots of other caffeinated perks make this one of Santa Barbara's best coffeehouses.

With two locations, the French Press is celebrating four years of serving locals and visitors to Santa Barbara in style. There's a reason they were named Best Coffee House in 2012 by the Santa Barbara Independent newspaper. The fresh from the press coffee and the beautiful latte art and the large selection of teas and caffeinated drinks make this a go to spot for anybody. It's especially nice to visit before or after a little outdoor fun. Even non coffee drinkers can find something to drink here, from the cider to fresh made lemonade. A large selection of pastries, sandwiches and other goodies are available daily. Free Wi-Fi and indoor and outdoor casual seating are available at both locations.
