our story


Welcome to French Press Bakery & Cafe, a conceptualized dream of mine since I left NYC and moved to the Boston suburbs.

Years in the making, French Press Bakery & Cafe is an extraordinary dream come true; if you love food, if you love Paris, if you love dessert and if you love coffee, you'll love French Press Bakery & Cafe.

Embodying the essential essence of NYC, London and Parisian cafes. We embrace the coffee culture, the tradition of taking time within your day to relax, reflect and socialize all revolving around coffee. The design of our space always held this aesthetic in mind. "We believe we succeeded in creating something exceptional in the Town of Needham and precisely what was desired".

Built out of a portion of space formerly occupied by the Taylor's stationery store. In retaining the full height of the ceiling, it enhanced the overall design. With the addition of reclaimed wood and steel to showcase an industrial yet warm setting honoring the original structure, while giving it new life and meaning as the best coffee shop in modern day Needham.

Truly the centerpiece are the exceptional pastries, enhanced of course by the aroma and taste of our own brand of coffee. A thoughtfully placed glass window showcases the in-house baking made daily using the finest ingredients.
