We live in Hillsboro Village and love to support local business when we can, but this place is filthy. We had stopped going for a while because of that and decided to try again today. It was dirtier than ever. Such a shame.

My family and I grabbed a morning snack at Provence yesterday. I had not been there in about 6 or 7 years and I can not agree more with the reviewer from Dec. 2, 2016. I remember this place as a piece of France in Nashville. The pastry and dessert section was sparce and few things looked fresh. My children... More

Stopped by here for a lunch today with my ladyfriend. I used to come here a lot, circa 2003. Back then, Provence was a great place. Artisan sandwiches on freshly-baked bread, tasty soups, interesting sides, creative beverages. It was always fresh and delicate--a hipster bakery before the advent of the hipster movement. Turkey sandwiches and fruit tea--that was my go-to... More

Provence is a neat restaurant in the Hillsboro Village section of Nashville. They feature a wide range of baked goods, sandwiches, and breakfast items. Except for the baked goods, everything is made from scratch. We find breakfast to be especially good, including very fine coffee. The place is comfortable, features WiFi, and includes bottomless coffee. Service is most pleasant, as... More

Sorry. We had high expectations for this place. Wanted a quick bite after being at Vanderbilt all day. I had soup...it was ok. A roach crawled up the wall next to us as we sat down...my husband killed it quietly with a napkin.

Love love love it. Great breads, fabulous desserts. Linzor tart cookies fantastic. Chocolate croissants scrumptious. Can't say enough of the assortment of delightful breads, sliced or not, take home and even freeze in glad wrap and defrost and they are as good as sane day purchased.

We were trying to get to the Pancake Pantry across the street, but the line wrapped around the corner. We came to Provence instead and were very happy we did. Great food and amazing coffees!!! If you are looking for a breakfast spot, I suggest you check this place out. I had the french toast, it was really good.

This is a stylish restaurant with a bistro feel. The menu is unique. There is not much seating inside and the day we went, it was packed. The service was okay, the food was tasty. The ladies room was clean. We didn't try any of the items in the deli case or the desserts. We ate here because Pancake Pantry... More

Digging into some amazing brunch food while watching the huge line across the street for Pancake Pantry was so, so satisfying. Very cute restaurant on 21st, I really enjoyed it!

Nice bakery/sandwich shop. Daily specials. I had the Italian sandwich and BLT on different days, both were great. Many tempting bakery items. Several salads like 3-bean. There's a rear door that leads to the Belcourt Theater parking lot. Will certainly be back during our project.

Thank Lawrence S
