Providence Cafe

While I was unsure what to order at Providence Café, I was highly impressed with the grilled tarragon-dijon salmon. Served with the perfect amount of spice, it boasts a marvelous flavor while not being overpowering. Combined with spinach infused risotto, the pairing is mouth-watering.

The parmesan encrusted flounder is an excellent choice for a mild fish. The breading gives a nice crunch and the leek risotto is creamy and packed with a punch. The large grilled asparagus finish off the dish nicely. The portion is ample and could be shared if in the mood for a light meal.

Topped with a delicious aioli sauce, the grilled angus burger was served to perfection. Oozing with flavor and hard to put down, you will be pleasantly surprised by the tenderness of this burger. My husband ordered this sandwich medium-well (which I generally deem overcooked), but the juiciness was unspoiled by the temperature of the burger.

The atmosphere is charming. Gray Leather booths with bronze nail heads line the windows with quaint wood tables in the middle. Natural plants paired with elegant white moldings and soft music keep the ambiance relaxing.

You will find a beautiful bar to your right as you enter.

The fresh daily homemade focaccia bread is spectacular. Topped with a light layer of rosemary and cheddar cheese the aroma is spectacular.

I know it will be difficult, but be sure not to overstuff yourself with the focaccia, as you must savor the fabulous desserts.

Coffee lovers must try the cappuccino ice cream pie. Who doesn’t like homemade coffee ice cream slathered in chocolate ganache and fresh whipped cream?

If chocolate is your vice then try “come to the dark side”. This dark chocolate cake filled with dark chocolate mousse and ganache is a rich,winning combination.

Offering live music as well as brunch, Providence Café is a definite Charlotte culinary gem. When you can, be sure to see for yourself.
