Café Provence has good salads and nice specials. We did not have a good experience with the pizzas. The pulled pork pizzas (we ordered two) were soggy on the bottom as was the greek pizza. The latter had too many Kalamata olives which overpowered the other toppings. The espresso did not taste like espresso but more like strong filtered coffee.... More

New Years Eve celebration meal. Excellent meal, generous portion, fantastic presentation, wonderful service and a more than reasonable price. When making a reservation, ask to be placed in the dining room area. The café area lacks atmosphere.

Cafe Provence is this great restaurant tucked away on a public parking area in Brandon (e.g. easy to miss). My uncle and I have eaten there numerous times over the past few years for both lunch and dinner; always superb in both food and service. The restaurant has a French flair to its menu and wine list, but focuses more... More

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.
