I've been to Bronte on a number of occasions and almost always have ordered and fully enjoyed the Salmon Nicoise salad. A lovely piece of fresh salmon, greens, roasted asparagus, tomatoes, kalamata olives, hard boiled egg. All high quality ingredients and part of what I love is the salmon is usually prepared well (most importantly, not overdone). Until last week,... More

Browsing through books, gifts, cards, etc. can be exhausting. Especially here. They have everything. Quality everything. So why not stop in for something delicious to eat or drink or both. Food is wonderful and priced right. Service is great. What's not to like? And it's kid friendly. You owe yourself the experience. Grab a book while you're at it. Great... More

My impression is that the Bronte Bistro is patronized by a fairly small number of devotees—some probably just in for the late Todd mystery. In other words, maybe the secret of the high quality of this restaurant isn’t yet really out. The lunches we’ve recently experienced have been all quality. If still available, try the special salad: roasted maple glazed... More

I was in town at Joseph-Beth Booksellers for the Bruce Springsteen Meet & Greet for his autobiography. Event was scheduled to start at 12 noon. I arrived about 9:30 to start the process of participating. After checking in at the wonderful bookstore, I had a light breakfast at Bronte Bistro which is a part of the bookstore. Coffee was tasty... More

I really enjoy having lunch at Bronte Bistro with my grandchildren. There is a book for each child to enjoy while waiting for lunch. My grands love pancakes and eat every bite! My daughter in law and I both enjoyed the special. A generous serving of delicious ham and asparagus quiche, salad greens and fruit. And after lunch, a walk... More

Bronte's is a nice little bistro attached to Joseph Beth bookstore. They have a nice menu and great quiche. Every day they feature a veggie quiche and a meat one. During peak meal times it does get very noisy

This is great for a relaxed meal and the food is pretty good. I had fish and chips and I think it was done well. They have a bar and desserts and also brunch. Located in the Joseph Beth Bookstore so you can read your book if you go solo.

We have eaten at Bronte Bistro several times and have never been disappointed. Nice place for families, couples or a girls gathering. Besides serving delicious food, Bronte also has a fantastic bar and coffee service.
