A Saturday brunch at the Press Cafe is a refreshingly modern, yet casual experience. Every seat is the best in the house but the large patios are what truly beckon (to Fido as well, they’re dog-friendly). Located in the heart of Edwards Ranch at The Trailhead, the landscape and view of the Trinity River is magnificent. While others trek the Trinity Trails, there’s a spot around the fire pit and a mimosa waiting just for you. With a first-class, knowledgeable wait staff and architectural appeal, it’s a place you’ll instantly adore, until you peruse the menu…then it’s love, true culinary love.
As a hot spot for North Texas residents, Press focuses on fresh ingredients and sustainability. It’s evident in each dish, including the vanilla spiced oatmeal (piled high with fresh berries) that, I promise, will be life-changing. The egg in a hole that has an Everest-sized mountain of delicious prosciutto on top has more gooey cheeses than your palate can identify. The trailhead breakfast seems like a traditional choice until the Niman Ranch bacon and homemade jam elevate it to “holy moly” status. Yes, please.
Press’s lunch menu has its own massive following and the live music, setting the mood for a relaxing weekend dinner, brings people out in droves. Thirty-five ingredients in the vegetable salad (beets, carrots, radicchio, lettuce, green beans, avocados, pistachios, Port Salut cheese, and chia seeds to name a few) is enough to impress but the tasty classic sandwiches and great pasta dishes make this carb-loving girl ecstatic. Flavors are subtle, yet complex and definitely satisfying. An exceptional wine by the glass, cocktail, and drafts list is also available for those wanting a before, during or after dinner drink.
Dining in is recommended but take out and catering options are ways Press Cafe is working to make enjoying fresh fare more convenient.
Hunger may be the main motivator for your first visit but it’s the adventure that awaits bringing you back for seconds. Cheers and I hope you enjoy leaving the road to take the trail!
