Thornton's Cafes Reviews
Newest Review: ... We found a table and I sat down while Mark went and ordered. The tables were a white colour and although reasonably clean I could see finger marks on ours still. Not enough to make me leave though. There were 2 girls clearing tables and despite the place being very busy there were no dirty plates etc left on a table for long. They were friendly and pleasent chatting to customers but not being too familiar. An important balance I think, whilst its nice to have a friendly smile and a few words I hate it when people act like my best friend. They had it just right on this occasion. Thorntons serve a variety of coffees and hot chocolates... more

My FiancÚ Mark and myself went shopping Saturday in Bury St Edmunds, a market town close to where we live. By midday feeling slightly jaded we decided to have a pit stop and opted for Thornton's Coffee Shop on the corner of the market square. Thornton's have only been doing coffee shops since 1996 and we have never tried on before so thought we would give it a go. Thorntons coffee shop in bse is small! The have taken half the shop for a regular Thorntons chocolate shop and squeezed about half a dozen tables in the other half. The tables were all tables for 2 although some had been pushed together. It was far too crowded and you were knocked and bumped every ... Read the complete review

So - the diet has started and you are in that early determined phase but a friend has suggested that you meet for coffee in a new cafe that has just opened. Not a problem you think - until you find out that its a Thornton's cafe. Hell is probably defined as drinking a low calorie coffee surrounded with thorntons chocolate - and this is where I found myself today. At the front of the store is the usua Thornton's merchandise. My store was at the retail outlet - Junction 32 on the M62 - and so there were many different special offers - 2 for 1 etc - extremely tempting. As you move towards the coffee shop area you are assaulted by huge pictures of delicious ... Read the complete review

As a huge fan of Thornton's chocolates, I was very excited to try out their cafe when a new one opened in my town. Thornton's is a luxury chocolate brand who do fantastic selections of rich, creamy chocolates, all with their own unique twist. I love visiting Thorntons when a cheap chocolate bar simply isn't luxurious enough. Therefore, I held high hopes for the cafe. Unfortunately, the cafe didn't quite live up to the standard of their fabulous chocolates. Usually when I order a coffee, I am used to waiting a couple of minutes before it is in my hand. However, at Thorton's it took 15 minutes before I was served. The queue was fairly long, but it moved ... Read the complete review

I am currently staying in Edinburgh with Dave. He is still working up here and has a long term let on a holiday house so Mew is in the cattery and I am keeping Dave company for a week or two. On Saturday we went to the Fort Kinnaird shopping centre just off the A1 in Edinburgh but if you want to talk about it to anyone do pronounce it slowly and carefully because it can sound very naughty if you say it quickly! Whilst we were there Dave suggested that we go into Thornton's (the chocolate shop) for a cup of tea in their cafe. He had been in there before and knew that it was nice so off we went. The Thornton's shop itself is quite small and ... Read the complete review
