Parish Press: The Perfect Little Coffee Shop

Written By Tori Ward, CVB Marketing/PR Assistant 

Parish Press, local Ruston coffee shop 

For most people, nothing beats a good cup of coffee. But even more so, nothing beats a good cup of coffee from an incredible, locally-owned coffee shop. Here in Ruston, La. we have a gem of a coffee shop that draws people in from all over the area. It's nearly impossible to stop in Ruston and not grab a hot cup of well-crafted Louisiana coffee, not to mention some of their mouth watering beignets. Here's a quick spotlight on the Ruston coffee shop that locals love and visitors continue returning to.

Parish Press has a relaxing, homey atmosphere
Atmosphere: Parish Press is everything a local coffee shop should be. Locals find the atmosphere to be welcoming and relaxing. With soft music playing in the background, lots of natural light and local artwork hanging on the walls, it’s an ideal setting for studying, reading or having a casual coffee date. 

Parish Press stays fairly quiet, even in the middle of a rush, which is often lost at chain coffee shops. The décor is rustic and charming with a chalkboard menu, wood-paneled bar and wooden tabletops. This quaint coffee shop comes complete with comfortable booths and couches to make you feel at home, and there are even a few tables out front if you want to enjoy your coffee outside. The staff is polite, knowledgeable and helpful, so have no fear if you have questions or special requests.

Menu at a glance: Parish Press has all the coffee staples as well as small breakfast items. Get hot or cold coffee drinks including lattes, cappuccinos, teas, frappes, iced coffees and more. If you’d like a little something to eat with your coffee, you can also grab bagels, muffins, oatmeal, yogurt and granola, cookies, beignets or breakfast sandwiches. The beignets are a local favorite.

A little something extra: Being a locally-owned coffee shop, Parish Press focuses on the community and partnering with local businesses. They proudly serve well-crafted coffee from Louisiana like Railway Coffee, an independent small-batch roaster located in Ruston, La. Additionally, they feature artwork in the coffee shop by local artists, which can typically be purchased in-store. 

If you're in the area, make sure you experience Parish Press' unique atmosphere and exceptional coffee. Parish Press is located at 1007 N. Trenton St. in Ruston and is open every day from 6am to 10pm. Keep up with Parish Press on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
