Food: ☆☆☆

Ambiance: ☆☆

Cost: $$

Dishes not to miss: Breakfast sandwiches, pastries


La Provence  is a great breakfast spot right in the midst of South Beach, FL. You will always find a long line at their counter for it’s readymade bakery items such as pastries and cakes. It also serves a decent breakfast featuring sandwiches, quiches, and eggs in many styles.
La Provence boasts as being an authentic French bakery – I don’t know how fine the food is but the attitude is certainly French! Customer service and politeness is not on their to-do list for sure!

However, for the offerings it has, that hardly makes a difference. La Provence offers an awesome break from the beach, for a quick bite and a good cup of coffee at an affordable price point.


Here is some of what we ate:


Breakfast Sandwich


Eggs Benedict




Fresh Fruit Tart


Royal Chocolate Cake
