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

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.
