We ate at Cafe Provence on a quiet March day. The setting is lovely, the food is delicious - and reasonably priced - the menu interesting, the servings generous, service friendly and quick. Altogether delightful.

Gem of a restaurant in Brandon Vermont. Varied menu from haute cuisine with Provence flair to gourmet pizza. Excellent wine list. Great desserts. Friendly staff.Meals not rushed. Moderately priced. My daughters Parisian boyfriend loves it.

Cafe Provence has a nice atmosphere, delicious light or larger meals and a lovely staff. The wine list is sufficiently inclusive. Love this place.

I really enjoyed lunch here a lot. Great choices on the menu. I chose the Turkey BLT on a baguette with fries and a side salad which filled me right up! There were suppose to be apples on the sandwich as well, but I didn't taste them which was a little disappointing. But not disappointing enough to turn me away... More

Café Provence has good salads and nice specials. We did not have a good experience with the pizzas. The pulled pork pizzas (we ordered two) were soggy on the bottom as was the greek pizza. The latter had too many Kalamata olives which overpowered the other toppings. The espresso did not taste like espresso but more like strong filtered coffee.... More

New Years Eve celebration meal. Excellent meal, generous portion, fantastic presentation, wonderful service and a more than reasonable price. When making a reservation, ask to be placed in the dining room area. The café area lacks atmosphere.

Cafe Provence is this great restaurant tucked away on a public parking area in Brandon (e.g. easy to miss). My uncle and I have eaten there numerous times over the past few years for both lunch and dinner; always superb in both food and service. The restaurant has a French flair to its menu and wine list, but focuses more... More

My girlfriends and I go there each fall, right before their long trips home for the winter. Always outstanding. The soups are wonderful, and my favorite the seafood stew is one of the best I've ever had. Don't even get me started on the desserts. The severs are great. Thanks for being there. One of the best parts of Brandon.

Every exquisite meal I've experienced at Cafe Provence has been wonderful. Brunches, lunches, dinners and drinks. I have eaten there far too many times to count and I can't recommend it highly enough. The wine list is also excellent.

We only wanted a light lunch; the soup and salads were just right. Everything here is homemade with a healthy dose of great taste. Everything looked so good that we even had dessert!
