great selection of prep foods

It's too open for me to be very comfy eating here but it's the perfect place to pick up a pricey perfectly concocted prepared dish to take home and heat up. GREAT chicken.

The food here is good, mostly freshly made - they even make their own mayonnaise! But I have seen the owner speak meanly and harshly to workers - there is turnover. Nobody should be treated like crap and here - they do that. I don't like that. So, I rarely eat here, except when a friend wants to.

La Provence is always reliable. The food is fresh and tasty. It is a local place so the ambience is not high end but it is functional. The quiche and the lentil salad are exquisite as is the bread.

La Provence has maintained its presence and quality as other food purveyors have come and gone. Their fresh baked bread is the best.

La Provence is a jewel located across from the RR station. You order at the counter and you can eat there or take your food out. The food is fresh and delicious especially the desserts. The menu is limited with sandwiches, quiches,soup, various salads, and drinks It is a wonderful place to meet friends.

I went with a friend who likes the restaurant. It was my first visit and it was busy since it was 1pm. We decided on the quiche with a side salad. You need to wait in line to order and feel a bit rushed when you do. The next step it to wait in another line to pay....which we did... More

We are sorry the reviewer had a negative experience. On the day being written about, two staff did not show up for work, hence the lines. We endeavored to do our best under difficult circumstances, but of course that is not always enough. More

Hands down, the best place for lunch in town. The price for a 3-course lunch is very reasonable and the quality is outstanding! The servings are right-sized for lunch (though you'll be served almost 1/3 of a quiche!) and you can also buy wine by the glass. The staff is friendly and efficient. My favorite place to meet friends for... More

The food at La Provence has been consistent since it first opened in Concord, right across from the railway station. The environment is charming for those who want to sit at a table. Order, then pay and wait for your food to be prepared. The beef bourguignon and salmon are tasty hot dishes, while a variety of quiches and salads... More

Didn't eat here but instead got two dessert items to go which were very good and a bit expensive, but we felt were worth the price. We would have eaten dinner here to sample their French menu, but didn't see that they had a dining room until we went there to pick up our dessert items. Too bad.
