DETAILS
As crusted artisan bread closes in on GooGoo Clusters as a local favorite foodstuff, Provence Breads & Café goes to the front of the line by supplying bread and baked goods to scores of area restaurants. Provence more than holds its own at its dine-in cafés, too, including the original Hillsboro Village location and in downtown's Public Library building. Provence owner and founder Terry Carr-Hall began baking bread in college. More than 30 different varieties of bread (sourdough and Tuscan are favorites) and just as many varieties of cheese are for sale in the cafés. Provence upgraded its kitchens with the 2008 addition of Kim Totzke (Ombi, The Yellow Porch) as executive chef. It's next to impossible to go wrong with any of the sandwiches, but don't miss the turkey with French Brie or the creamy herbed chicken salad. The soups and salads rank among the best in the city. Baked sweet goods include fabulous fruit tarts, biscotti and enough cookie varieties to warrant a separate menu. No alcohol available. Serving breakfast and lunch daily. "Bread needs cheese, and Provence's selection is unrivaled. Well before noon, customers patiently queue up for the heavenly daily soups, salads and sandwiches."
- Nashville Scene
