Discover Beautiful Bronte, Oakville’s Village-By-The-Lake

Bronte Village

Bronte Village is a vibrant and scenic lakefront community that meets at the crossroads of Bronte and Lakeshore Roads in southwest Oakville.  The village itself dates back to 1834 when it began as a sleepy little fishing village later joining with Trafalgar Township to form The Town of Oakville in 1962.  Today, Bronte Village boasts a bustling yet charming downtown core filled with unique locally owned shops, specialty food stores, big-city amenities and fine boutiques framed by its spectacular lake views!

Oakville is well known for its world-class dining and Bronte is no exception!  With nine open-air patios and eight fine dining restaurants specializing in both local and international fare, Bronte caters to every taste and every price range.  Cucci Ristorante and Alhambra Fiesta offer traditional Mediterranean dishes, while O Sushi is an authentic Japanese lounge.  Looking for something local?  The Compass Lakeside Grill serves up some of the finest offerings from in and around the area all in a beautiful lakeside setting.

Downtown Bronte offers a unique shopping experience with something for everyone.  From antiques to fine carpets, imported gourmet treats to the latest in fashion, shopping in downtown Bronte is certain to appeal to even the most discriminating tastes.  More than 200 businesses operate in the Bronte community making Bronte an ideal and well-rounded big-city community with small-town heart!

Bronte Village plays host to several popular events throughout the year including its Canada Day Festival, ‘Art In The Park” and its much anticipated Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.  Don’t forget to take in one of the many regattas at the Harbour or book a sailing lesson of your own and experience the adventure on Lake Ontario.  Whether you’re taking the kids to play, meeting a friend for lunch or looking for the perfect picnic spot, Bronte Village has something to offer.  Heading out for a Sunday drive or looking for a place to canoe or camp, the Bronte area parks and trails provide locals and visitors with endless opportunities to interact with nature.

With all that Bronte Village has to offer, one of its most stunning and sought after aspects remains its gorgeous views from not only land but the water as well.  Take a stroll down by the harbour and prepare to be mesmerized by the tall sailboats and yachts as they glide silently out to beautiful Lake Ontario.  Venture out on the Lake yourself and less than a kilometre from shore, Bronte Harbour provides a stunning view of the Toronto skyline to the east, downtown Burlington and the Skyway Bridge to the west.
