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!

Stopped by for a dinner on a weekday on our trip to Vermont and we ended up having the best meal of our trip! The menu had some really interesting and well thought-out options that were nicely seasonal in nature. We choose well, and left full (good portion size!) and satisfied. You have to be a little patient for the... More

Few options for dining in Brandon centre, and this was recommended by our hosts. They were able to accommodate us without a reservation. We had a lovely cocktail ($7-8) in the bar whilst waiting for our table. Bar staff and servers extremely friendly. Air con rather cold. Delicious food, especially seafood stew.

A bit tricky to find the entrance, but a nice relaxing atmosphere right off the main drag through town. We arrived before the crowd, but the waitstaff was very friendly and quick with the service, but not at all bothersome. Our soups were great as well as the meals. My only suggestion is a few more dishes that do not... More

This was my first visit to Cafe Provence. I'd always heard great things about this place and was not disappointed. The tomato pie was a great appetizer to share. The fish and chips was awesome - crispy with just the right amount of breeding. We shared a dessert sampler - perfect to share and try a variety. Great meal!
