Fodor's Expert Review Café Provence
Robert Barral, the former director of the New England Culinary Institute, graces Brandon with this informal eatery one story above the main street. Flowered seat cushions, dried-flower window valences, and other hints of Barral's Provençal birthplace abound. His café specializes in eclectic farm-fresh dishes: the goat-cheese cake with mesclun greens, braised veal cheeks, and caramelized endive, and the portobello pizza from the restaurant's hearth oven both count among recent favorites. Sunday brunch offerings include buttery pastries, eggs Benedict, and breakfast pizza. There's outdoor seating under large umbrellas.
