There are plenty of great eateries along Bronte Road, but it's hard to walk past Pure Bronte Pistachio without being drawn by the vibrant colours of the outdoor seating or the signature stripes that feature in their signage and on the walls. Once you look past the colours, you'll find a great little spot for a lazy breakfast or long lunch, or to just indulge in a scoop of your favourite gelato.

Pure Bronte Pistachio place an emphasis on using seasonal, organic and local produce, such as their handmade beef burgers made using 100% organic beef. Other specialties include their gluten free pancakes, home-made banana bread and - of course - the Pure Bronte Pistachio gelato, made on premises.
Lunch Specials on the day of my visit included Slow roasted Lamb Salad, Grilled Fish Burger, Salt and Pepper Squid and Grilled Prawn Salad.
If you prefer to eat your lunch over at Bronte Park or on the beach, Pure Bronte Pistachio also offers take-away. It was a beautiful sunny day so we opted for some take-away fish and chips to enjoy over at the park. The chips were crispy and golden, but I have to admit when we opened the box we were disappointed with the amount of fish in the pack.
Thumbs up for the crispy golden chips, but the take-away 'Fish and Chips' was more like 'Chips with a side of Fish'
Parking: most of the streets directly adjacent to Bronte Beach have restricted (1 hour limit) and ticketed parking. However, if you're willing to take a very short walk up the hill on the south side you'll find unrestricted parking along Calga Place and Macpherson Street.
Bus: catch Bus Number 378 from Railway Square in the Sydney CBD, which runs along Oxford Street to Bondi Junction and takes you right to Bronte Park and conveniently drops you off opposite Pure Bronte Pistachio.
