Provisions is a comfy cafe; replete with still-warm baked goods, yummy comfort fare (try the rich and dreamy mac n' cheese), gourmet sandwiches (curried chicken salad on apple walnut bread) and 'like Mom's' ready-to-eat takeout meals. Owner Nannette Conners makes most everything from scratch, including homespun desserts such as cookies (toffee and cherry chippers, oatmeal, and peanut butter), cupcakes, layer cakes, and apple crisp. Provisions offers catering services as well, and can arrange brunches, lunches, or dinners for any size group and handle china, linen, and chair rentals as well as hire waiters and waitresses.
Best Prepared Foods South 2008. Yes, there are a few tables at Provisions, Nannette Conners's snug open-kitchen cafe, but the core business is takeout comfort fare; the kind of from-scratch food your mom made when you were a kid (or you wish your mom made). Think steaming potpies loaded with succulent chicken and fresh peas; chunky leek-potato soup; house-made granola with oats, almonds, coconut, and honey; and rich and creamy (and, yes, high-cal) macaroni and cheese; 'not the low-fat version,' Conners says proudly.
