Good quality food at decent prices. All home cooked by owner/chef, Christophe. I had a gorgeous halloumi burger and the homemade blackberry cheesecake- made with blackberries that Chrisophe had picked himself...delicious. Friendly relaxed atmosphere.

Christophe’s bistro is a little gem in Thornton, I’m glad we found this gorgeous cafe. I’ve been a few times with my husband and taken a few family members too.. The full English breakfast omg it’s absolutely lovely, not to mention the French options, plus...they serve salads and lunchtime foods too… oh yes and fine wine! My favourite local place to eat. Christophe is such a lovely guy.More

Great little find, friendly staff socially distanced even though really quaint place. Great coffee and deserts, the blackberry cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding were delicious. Will have to go back next time we’re in the area to try out food as it looked good.

Upon arriving after having booked a table shortly after reopening from COVID, it was very clean and tidy, the tables were well spaced apart and not too tight. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the service was excellent. Two great coffees and full breakfasts, (after...asking for them without black pudding and mushrooms, being asked if we would like an extra sausage or bacon etc. instead was perfect) The food was very nice and the bacon was just right, not over done but with a little crisp on the fat. Fantastic thick brown toast as well. Would definitely recommend this nice little cafe and will be sure to visit again!More

Christoffs is a small coffee and eating house. All food is freshly made to order, excellent quality, good size portions and delicious. Christoffs menu is very flexible, e.g. salad instead of chips. His premises are licenced so you can have a glass of wine with...lunch if desired. Generally he only opens one evening a week.More

We called for lunch with family who regularly visit Christophe’s. The owner and staff are very friendly and happily chat with you. If you are going for a meal it is advisable to book. The food was amazing and cooked to perfection. If you have...room for a pudding afterwards the sticky toffee pudding is out of this world. There is free on road parking but there are not a lot of spaces.More

I always love visiting here. It's a lovely environment and the food is gorgeous! There's always a good choice and I'm a big fan of the deserts. On this occasion I had the cheeseburger and chips and then for desert there was freshly made chocolate...fudge cake and there's no scrimping on portion size! I recommend Christophes for anyone visiting the area.More

Been here a few times with my mum and a pram and despite the restaurant been small, we've never been turned away. The fish finger sandwich on a Friday is so tasty and extremely filling, would definitely recommend. The service is always great and youll...be well looked after.More

Very friendly service; very good value; very good quality. Really pleased to find this welcoming and efficient coffee house- although the title is slightly misleading because it's much more than the name suggests!

Hi, I'm sorry to say that there is a couple of steps at the front door. It's not impossible to get in but not ideal. Christophe.
