“Perfect combo of great food, great books, plan time for both!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We were thrilled to find not only one of the few remaing bookstores left standing, but this amazing bistro right next door as well. The food, service, coffee and tea are all excellent. Great varied selections - I especially love that they serve gluten free bread options for their sandwhiches as well as free range/hormone free meats, something more restaurants should be doing! Looking forward to going back soon!

“Brunch at the bookstore”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

How to have a delightful Sunday morning: Meet some friends at Bronte Bistro at Joseph-Beth Booksellers. Order their divine Creme Brulee French Toast with crisp bacon and excellent coffee. Spend enough time to savor your meal and catch up with your buds. Then step into the store and gorge yourself on books. Perfect!

“Lovely spot - great food!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Bronte is attached to a bookstore so if you're looking for lunch and an outing, this is a perfect spot. They have excellent dishes that are pretty unique - the salmon buger was delicious! I've also eaten brunch there and their quiche is fantastic. They have delicious coffee and offer a nice bistro environment. It can get a little noisy, but that's just the sign of folks having a good meal, right?

“Eat first, shop later!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Bronte Bistro has some great menu items! They also make great coffee and tea drinks (the chai latte I ordered was to die for!). Like the other review, everything is spectacular, but it seems like the service is a little slower than I'd like. I'm not sure if I came during shift change, but it took a while for a server to introduce themselves and take our drink orders, then they kind of disappeared for a while. It was that way throughout the meal. There could have been some reason, and the delay certainly didn't ruin the meal or experience, but I'm glad we weren't in any rush. I'll still keep going back though! mmmm!

“The food is great, there...”
Reviewed January 7, 2009

The food is great, there is good variety and menu changing, the atmosphere is nice, but the service is always just a little slower than I'd like.
