The waiter could barely speak English and had no French, no bread was available, foul-tasting tap water was served in dirty jugs. This used to be a good bistro-type cafe but the owners appear to have deserted it.

Friendly staff. Nice breakfast spot. My wife and I had a relaxing breakfast outside enjoying Brooklyn on a sunny Saturday morning. I do need to add that I do live in Brooklyn.

Regularly have breakfast here when visiting friends in Brooklyn. The food is good. The baked goods can be amazing. The outside tables give a nice French café ambiance. We have been able to sit for 2 or 3 hours at a time without being hassled, so it's been a pleasant spot for socializing.

Nothing like having a glass of french rosé, seating outside a bistro, eating quiche and getting a bit of sun on your face. Head to Provence en boite, on Smith street, and enjoy simple French fare and delicious pastries, also available to take home...

I was hoping to see Provencal dishes in the brunch menu of the restaurant (salade nicoise, Mediterranean vegetables, etc.) but, apart from the decorum, there is not much from Provence in there... Dommage.
