Four simple words to describe the latest coffee shop to hit Alamance County. Press Coffee + Crepes opened its doors on Monday and is quickly becoming the talk of the town. On Tuesday "Sweet Mama", Fiona, and I had the chance to try out some delicious coffee and amazing crepes!
From the moment we walked in we were greeted with a bubbly smile by Sabrina who is a total ray of sunshine. She gave us a full rundown of the offerings to help us make our decisions.
I originally asked for a hazelnut latte, but after a quick chat with Forrest, the barista, I went with a latte having equal parts of chocolate, caramel, and vanilla...OH MY DELICIOUS! Forrest has officially introduced me to my new morning coffee of choice.
While studying in Paris I indulged far too often in wine and crepes! I actually had never had a crepe until I visited France, but it quickly became one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Press offers a wide variety of breakfast, lunch, and sweet crepes. We tried the "Down Home" crepe filled with ham or bacon (you make the call), egg, and local hoop cheese and of course the always classic banana and Nutella filled crepe. Both were delicious.
The decor offers an urban feel with exposed bricks and pipes. I love when a business goes into an older building and brings it back to life while leaving the "history" in tact. I think I will always be a fan of this look.
While I was having my little moment with my yummy latte and crepe I noticed Jason, the owner walking around the shop chatting with and getting to know his customers. THIS solidified what I already had quickly discovered...I will be a regular and I will spread the word of Press.
You just can't beat a big city feel with a small town heart!
