Downtown Crossing has a new French cafe thanks to the recent opening of Cafe Province. And let the record show that Cafe Province is a great name for a cafe serving croissants and the like (aka the food of Provence) on Province Street. The best part: the owner is actually from France, has a dreamy French accent, and makes assurances that all of the crepes, croissants, sandwiches and salads are made in-house each day. He says the cafe opened last week, which the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District confirms via Facebook. The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Blog notes that this space was the former home of both Chacarero and Bella Drew's Cafe. The early word from a Yelper: " I'm not quite sure what French pastries are supposed to taste like but the chocolate croissant and pig in a blanket were delicious." They have blanketed pigs in France?
