Run Agrounds will reopen as the French Press on Nov. 11

The Run Agrounds coffee shop at Cape Harbour will close on Nov. 6, and reopen on Nov. 11 as a beautiful new European style coffee café under the supervision of Chef Benjamin Voisin of neighboring Fathoms Restaurant & Bar.

The French Press will offer world-class gourmet coffee, and a much-needed alternative to big chain cafés as a place to meet and unwind. Enjoy light, fresh fare and take in the beautiful surroundings at Cape Harbour, Southwest Florida’s only waterfront shopping destination in Southwest Florida with award-winning art galleries, a luxury spa and salon and extraordinary boutiques.

Breakfast and lunch will be served, including homemade crepes, pastry such as flaky croissants, salads and baguette sandwiches. Visitors to this elegantly renovated café can enjoy a gelato and stroll over to Fathoms for some live music. The French Press will host its own regular events, too, such as book readings and singer-songwriter performances. An abbreviated menu of Fathoms’ popular dishes will be available at the café, along with select wines and cheeses. Any of the fresh pastry that is not sold each day will be donated to a local charity that night.

The remodel that will occur over the few days the café is closed include improvements and updates to the display and counter areas, and a general refresh similar to the one Fathoms underwent in September. Additional seating will also be available in the new French Press, making it a great place to hang out.

The French Press is the second Southwest Florida venture for international hospitality company Hoffman Group Holdings, LLC since it acquired The Joint, which recently reopened as Fathoms. The company has its sights set on expanding into Fort Myers in 2015.
