La Provence Patisserie and Cafe

La Provence is a little French cafe in a shopping mall on the outskirts of Beverly Hills. The large lunch crowd intrigued my mom and I, as we were patronizing another business in the mall, so we stopped in for lunch. The portions are large, and the pastries beautiful. Look at all those pretty macaroons! The chocolate one I have was as good as any in town. My red velvet was the moistest I have every had.

The entrees were a mixed bag. My prociutto and brie sandwich had pre-packaged prociutto (rather then freshly sliced on the premises) and, dare I say it, too much brie!

My mom's spinach quiche had all the rich, buttery, eggy goodness you should expect, it was just gigantic! They are working on a second location in Brentwood on San Vicente in the mall with CPK.

I have been waiting rather impatiently for the new location to open in Brentwood. The last I heard it was set to open in January, and still, nothing. Your pictures and descriptions have made me even more impatient. I want to try those macarons!!!!
