From Provence to you De la Provence à vous

Café Provence in Brandon is the perfect spot for a relaxing Sunday brunch, a casual lunch break from an afternoon shopping spree, a cozy place to kick back and enjoy an open-hearth pizza or thick juicy burger after an invigorating day of biking, hiking or skiing, yet elegant enough for an exquisite meal with someone special.  Chef Robert Barral and his experienced chefs offer a varied menu featuring ultra-fresh ingredients gathered from local purveyors of meat, cheeses, fruits and vegetables produced right here in Vermont.  Our friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff is ready to recommend wines to complement any meal; the restaurant proudly maintains a wide selection of international and local wines, as well as local and imported brews, and a full-service bar.

Just around the corner is the Café’s sister bakery and eatery Gourmet Provence. Here you’ll find incredible breakfast pastries, breads, fine desserts, cakes to order, specialty coffees, Vermont delicacies, and many hard to find gourmet cooking ingredients. The store also features a very well stocked wine room that is sure to please everyone.

Our customers can now enjoy free wireless access.

Outdoor seating is available at both locations in the summer.

We have paired up with the Lilac Inn to bring you the Vermont Culinary Retreats


What People are Saying About Café Provence

Jean H says:

"My husband and I have the pleasure of dinning here several times during the year. In the winter we ride snowmobiles and stay in Brandon. In the summer we have a house on a lake near Lake Bomoseen. Other times, we live in New Jersey. Never once dining here has been disappointing. Love trying the different specials! The wine choices are also fantastic!"

Mary Gill-Warren says:

"Love the bar...its clean and comfortable. Have brought many of our friends there for wings and a beer...LOVE the atmosphere...a great place to catch up with friends."

Joshua Dalmer says:

"Cafe Provence is my favorite place to eat in Vermont. We regularly travel from St Albans to eat at Cafe Provence. I enjoy the food experience in a relaxed environment. The talent in combining flavors is immediately evident in every dish."

Jim Buswell says:

"My wife and I took part in a Cafe Provence culinary retreat that was part of a trip to celebrate my wife's birthday. She loves to cook and has participated in several cooking schools. This time she included me in the cooking. Like a fish out of water, I joined her. Chef Robert treated us to some cooking techniques in a very enjoyable fashion. We enjoyed some old favorite dishes and learned a few delicious new ones. Now, I can participate in producing a meal and do things other than washing dishes. Learning where some of the foods we used in the dishes we prepared (a goat farm, yak farm and beef farm)came from ---by visiting them ---was a part of the weekend that I particularly enjoyed."
