You may not think of Paris when you think of the Prairie Village neighborhood across the border in Kansas, but Cafe Provence is one of the best French spots in America. (We’ve heard that many French nationals make the trip to Kansas just to have the chicken with morel brandy cream sauce, escargot, or onion soup here.) Beyond the top-notch French classics, the service is impeccable, meaning you’re in good hands for dinner with the parents or simply when you want some birthday soufflé.
The interior feels like a classic French cafe, with white tablecloths and a charming mural of the French countryside, and the patio is stocked with heat lamps for those wanting some fresh air. Cafe Provence also owns the more casual French Market, a bakery that’s only a block away and does pastries, cheeses, and sit-down lunches.
