This place was chosen for Dinner based on the reviews on here and we weren’t disappointed. The food was all really good and affordable. The service was solid and it was an overall great experience. To start off the meal serve an assortment of breads with an herb butter that is really good. The Plates are all $6 or $7... More

They've moved down the street to Bryant. Glad we didn't give up until we found it because the Bacon Lentil soup was amazing. Their gluten free bread was the best I've ever had.

The food is wonderful, the croissants flakey and flavorful. The ambiance is great unless you sit in the center of the center section and then it's pretty noisy. The outside area is a wonderful experience on a nice day. The waitstaff is friendly and helpful. You can purchase pastries and bread to take home and they are also delicious.

This is my go to spot when meeting friends for lunch. Beautiful atmosphere and scrumptious food. My top favorites are the smoked salmon hash, monte cristo, and the salmon salad. My kids love the chocolate filled croissants. Their raspberry freezer jam is amazing and you can buy a container and bring it home. This French cafe never dissappoints!

This restaurant is one of the reasons I so often travel to the Portland area, and my favorite thing about Oregon (even more so than the tax free shopping!). Expect to fight for a parking space and (depending on the time of day) wait for a table, but I promise the meal will more than make up for any inconvenience... More

I just returned from France where I lived 30 years ago. Back then the croissants were spectacular. Unfortunately today they've reduced the quality of the ingredients and the bread and pastries are lackluster. I came back to discover La Provence!! Amazingly the croissants and other pastries surpassed those that I came across in France. The ingredients are fresh and obviously... More

I'll make this simple; Pomegranate Drop cocktail was exquisite, Roasted Beet salad with Chevre was layered, each flavor holding its own and yet complementing others, and whoa...the Pork Shank with butternut squash and apple compote....Bravo! Our waitress was a treasure, genuine smiles and brilliant customer service. Thank you La Provence!

I have been having breakfast with my daughter at this restaurant since she was 2 (now 6). My son has tagged along for the past 1 year. They really do have the best breakfast locally (hence the long wait which is the only drawback) and they also have the greatest server of all time. I cannot say enough about Stephanie,... More

A busy but family friendly establishment. Quality breakfast selection and great bakery. A little noisy, but enjoyable.
