Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Love everything about Schoolhouse Thornton always grabbing a beautiful (sometimes warm) loaf of bread. Coffee, cakes, slices and danishes are always delicious.

Stunning transformation of an old school house. Wonderful of breads, snacks and baked goods. The coffee is addictive. The service, excellent. A ‘must do’ visit for anyone in the region!

What a charming place the Schoolhouse is - full of reminders of yesteryear when children were taught in the beautiful old rooms of this reimagined Schoolhouse. Here you can enjoy the yummiest food that is made freshly every day by a very talented chef! It...is hard to decide what to choose from the wonderful array of savoury pies, filled rolls, ham and cheese toasties, delicious croissants filled with ham and cheese or superbly presented sweet pastries, tarts and cakes. And then there is the fresh baked bread that is better than any bread you will find. The coffee is great, the service friendly and efficient and you can take away, sit down inside or in the original playground area outside. But make sure you get in early to the Schoolhouse ... or all the goodies will be snapped up by those of us who know how truly delicious the food is! A must visit place in the area👌More

Driving through this small town, we discovered this little gem of a cafe for lunch. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of food. Had an amazing potato, leek & bacon soup and a seriously delicious trout pastie (pastry definitely home made). Coffee was...brilliant, fresh bread available, great little selection of pantry items, indoor and outdoor seating options, toilet facilities. Just a really lovely lunch experience, when we were on the go and thinking we'd have to settle for nasty dried out bakery pies. Definitely would go back! Hours open were short, but then that's how to keep a small business sustainable long term. Big thumbs up 👍More

Best coffee by far in Thornton. Located in the old schoolhouse. The pastries are made fresh on site and are delicious. Highly recommended.

Just reopened only at weekends at present. Good coffee and good selection of cakes and bread. Lovely staff. Lovely sitting under the trees. Welcome respite in an area starved for decent eating places.

We visited on Friday morning and had a coffee and a soy prana chai. Both excellent and beautifully presented. Shared a 3 cheese toastie which was delicious. Went back on Saturday for a second round and a really good brownie. Offers a range of milks...and would be a good place to take kids as there is room outside for them to run around. Looking forward to visiting again the next time we are in the area.More

Located in the old schoolhouse in Thornton this was a great place for coffee and breakfast with bright clean decor, excellent service and a good and tasty menu. It was good to see a young group of people trying hard and doing it well. Better...signage on the highway would help their business by alerting passers to their location.More
