Press, Reviews & Awards


"...Provender has been a mainstay in Tiverton Four Corners for over three decades, providing locals and tourists alike with a much-loved menu of sandwiches, cookies, cakes, pastries and an ever-expanding selection of specialty foods."

Edible Rhody, Spring 2013

"...get a sandwich at the Provender. I recommend the Scarlet Letter, a turkey and cranberry combination that has endured there for decades."

The Providence Journal, "18 Things To See in RI Before You Die"

"No need to go far for lunch. Locals and visitors alike flock to Provender for creatively named gourmet sandwiches. The Dr. Bombay, a curried chicken salad and mango chutney, and the Freudian Slip, with Black Forest ham, herb cheese and honeycup mustard, are two popular options."

The Providence Journal

"The problem with being hungry when you walk into Provender is that you'll want everything on the menu - how could you possibly choose between the mouthwatering turkey with cranberry and the curried chicken salad with mango chutney? But whatever you do, don't order both: You have to save room for a cream cheese brownie or almond marzipan torte."

Boston Magazine


"This place just cannot be beat. The sandwiches are the kind of thing you always hope you'll get when you make a sandwich at home, but never do. They don't feel like deli sandwiches, they feel like the extra special kind that you got at grandma's house, or the other kid's houses back when you were a kid. The kind you dream of but never quite get anymore."

Customer, Yelp

"This would be my #1 place for a sandwich in all of RI and Southeastern Mass. The Scarlet letter is my absolute favorite. Everything here is amazing...and consitent best of all. The cookies are great. and so is the soup when they have it. The perfect time to come here is on a warm afternoon and you can get your sandwich to go and there is a big patch of grass behind the parking area where you can sprawl out and enjoy your meal. I can not say enough good things about this place."
