Our Story

Wistow Café Bistro’s owner Jane Clifford opened the café bistro back in 2007. She set about transforming a cold, dark, dank unit at Wistow Rural Centre, into a vibrant and welcoming café. It was the first step in a journey to bring quality food and drink to the local community.

Today, Wistow Café Bistro is a bustling café loved by locals and visitors alike. Jane and her team remain as committed as ever to providing customers with fresh, locally produced food served in a relaxed, friendly environment. You’ll find our lovely cafe in the heart of beautiful rural Leicestershire in Wistow, a picturesque hamlet located just a short distance from the city of Leicester.

Good food is at the heart of everything we do here at Wistow Café Bistro. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, the best locally roasted artisan coffee, delicious homemade cakes and bakes, award-winning afternoon teas and other tempting seasonal offerings all year round. Wherever possible, we use locally sourced ingredients. And to ensure the very best quality and taste, we carefully select suppliers who share our passion for all things artisan.

We are particularly proud of our homemade cakes and bakes, made fresh daily in our on-site bakery. A tempting selection of cakes are available to purchase in the café every day. You can even order full-sized versions of some of our most popular cakes and bakes. We also offer a bespoke celebration cake design service if you need a custom cake for a special occasion or event.

Wistow Café Bistro is so much more than just a cosy rural café. We host evening events throughout the year, including our popular monthly Pudding Nights. And with our sister company, Wistow Events, offer event catering services and venue hire for birthdays, parties, baby showers, corporate events, weddings and wakes.

The café is open from 10 am seven days a week. Head to our Wistow Café Bistro Facebook page to find out our current opening hours.

Whatever the season and weather, you can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome at Wistow Café Bistro. As a dog-friendly café, you’re more than welcome to bring your four-legged friend along with you too.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
