Very nice spot...bought some pastries and coffee, but also ended up viewing a lovely wine collection and purchasing a 1/2 case to take home.

A great find! The food was wonderful, and the staff were super nice. They even made our wedding cake in their bakery. Cannot say enough good things.

The salmon was served in a large soup dish on top of braised vegetables and lobster broth, could have done w/o the broth,too much! Apple crisp was delicious

We dined at the Cafe twice during our Brandon visit. The first night I had Salmon and my spouse had steak. The next night I ordered the steak and my wife had the Breaded Chicken Nicoise. All four meals were perfect as was the service. Its nice to see a restaurant consistently get it right. We can't wait to get... More

We had a small group for lunch. Everyone was pleased with their entrée. My husband and I enjoyed our lunch but we thought it was good but not great. My husband had a quiche that he thought was a bit boring and a butternut, apple, ginger soup that he felt was a bit heavy handed with the spices and maybe... More

Presided over by Chef Robert Barral, formerly the Executive Chef of the New England Culinary Institute, Café Provence offers solid food in a classic Vermont setting. Unfortunately, I did not visit on a day during which Chef... More

An earlier review on this place was headed by the comment, “Oh the things you’ll find in small town VT!” That is so very true! This restaurant came as a real surprise (Vermont is full of them!). The owner is French and of course he has adapted the menu to fit American tastes and appetites; he wouldn’t survive long in... More

Ate here twice. First visit, food was real nice. Second visit, not so much. For a small town like Brandon, it was surprising to find a restaurant like this though. Chef seemed to be inventive and served a number of unexpected dishes. Service was good. Pricing a bit on the high side.
