Went to the Cafe Provence for a late lunch. Ordered the Steak and onions sandwich and my wide ordered the Cafe Provence Beef Burger (Hamburger). We gave the waitress our order and despite being the only 2 people in the restaurant, it took 35 minutes to cook 4 small steak medallions, one hamburger and some fries! There were 7 employees...

We live about 30 minutes from Brandon. We know if we want a really good lunch, we can depend on having excellent food at the Cafe Provence. Today we took our 16 year old granddaughter to lunch to hear about her summer adventures. The sandwiches were delicious and enough to take home for another lunch. We had two Creme Brulees... More

Excellent service and delicious food. We arrived late about 8:30 and felt lucky to find any place even open for dinner, but were pleasantly surprised to find Cafe Provence was more than just open, it was outstanding. We will absolutely return.

This is a destination restaurant in the charming town of Brandon. Fabulous desserts! The chef is one of the best in the state. I've eaten here many times, for lunch, brunch and for dinner and have never had a disappointing meal. The wine list is above average for Vermont. Just down the street there's a bakery/gift shop/wine store operated by... More

Was part of a large family dinner celebration on a busy Saturday night. The food was first-class, and the service very good (particularly given the place was packed with many others also celebrating in large groups!). Nice selection of wines by the glass reasonably priced, Appetizers were excellent - onion soup, mussels, salads. etc. Entrees were excellent, whether they were... More

We have a camp on a nearby lake and we were trying to make this one of our "go to" places as the food is very good and it has a nice atmosphere but the last two visits were a disappointment as far as service and it appeared to be due to being short staffed - to the point on... More

Visited Brandon last night (Friday) on my way up to Burlington. Heard about Cafe Provence and I entered what I thought was the main entrance. I ended up at the bar down stairs (Center Street Bar). Great rustic yet charming feeling. Immediately greeted by both bar tenders/cooks/dishwashers. I sat at the bar and ordered a draft. The bartender was very... More
