The atmosphere is decidedly French at Maison de Provence, with inviting Euro-style chairs and cushions lining the sun-drenched verandah. The mini patisserie and cafe lies hidden down a back street in the Noosa Hinterland, but the pastries, chocolates, macarons and fresh bread are well worth discovering.
A selection of perfect baguettes, '1894' pain de campagne and classic batards are baked daily, as well as traditional quiches, petit fours and mille-feuilles. Maison de Provence also serve locally roasted Flying West coffee, a selection of loose leaf teas, juices, cordials, and fresh smoothies.
Some of the popular menu items at Maison de Provence include brioche french toast served with fresh berry coulis, savoury crepes, raspberry and dark chocolate mousses, chocolat and almond croissants, and salmon nicoise salad - all tres delicieux.
For those wishing to purchase a souvenir, Maison de Provence sell a range of French-inspired goodies to take home. There is a small community book exchange tucked inside the cafe and the verandah makes an ideal spot to while away a few hours reading. Also, there are colouring pencils available to keep the little ones entertained. There is a convenient car park located directly beneath Maison de Provence, as well as parking along Wattle Street.
