Fort Worth's popular patio-centric Press Cafe to open second location
A popular chef-driven cafe in Fort Worth is expanding: Press Café, the healthy restaurant at the Trailhead at Clearfork from chef Felipe Armenta, will open a location in Aledo, at 109 S. Front St.
According to a release, it'll open in fall 2023.
"We are excited to bring Press Cafe to the Aledo foodie community and introduce our unique take on contemporary American classics," Armenta says in a statement. "Our team has put in a lot of hard work to ensure that our guests have a memorable dining experience, and we can’t wait to share it with everyone."
Armenta opened the first Press Cafe in 2016 at the Trailhead, where it boasts one of the city's favorite patios; keeps long hours including opening early for breakfast & coffee; features salads and other healthy dishes in addition to burgers; has wine, beer, & cocktails; and is a favorite casual drop-in for bicyclists.
As they do at their Fort Worth location, Press Café in Aledo will strive to highlight locally grown and seasonal dishes, as well as daily specials, on a menu by Armenta and partnering chef Graham Elliot, with friendly service in a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere.
It'll be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, with weekend brunch on Saturday-Sunday.
The restaurant's interior will include a full bar with cocktails, wines by the glass and bottle, and local beers on tap and in bottles.
Press Cafe is part of Far Out Hospitality, whose portfolio includes Tavern, Pacific Table, The Grill, Maria’s Mexican Kitchen, Towne Grill, Cowboy Prime, and the soon-to-open Le Margot and F1 Smokehouse.
For Aledo, the addition of Press Café is another step in the city's ongoing effort to revitalize and redevelop Downtown Aledo.
“Press Café is an exciting and welcomed addition to our community," says Aledo Mayor Nick Stanley. "As one of the most popular restaurants in the metroplex, Press Café’s outstanding reputation and exceptional fare will be an economic driver for Aledo and will serve our residents and visitors well."
