  • Situated in a converted church, this is a cafĂ© that is set within the environs of a selection of vintage stalls offering a wide range of eclectic items. We went in just to have a nose around and found...  more »

  • Nothing exciting I'm afraid. Could be so much more in such a unique location. Disappointing. Many of the stalls/tables were tatty and not what I would call vintage or interesting. Shame.  more »

  • Community work at its best and a blinking great venue to boot. Lovely food and great market! Pay It Forward meals for the homeless is a brilliant idea.
  • A good cause but the food is shockingly overpriced. Shame really
  • Fell in love with it from the first moment, although, I have to say, I prefer to sit outside when I'm there and take in the view. Soooo relaxing. I'm not impressed with the coffee, really, but I appreciate everything else. The hot chocolate is great.
  • Amazing cafe, doing amazing work. This is a MUST visit in Colchester if you want a break and a cuppa.
  • Excellent little cafe and indoor vintage market. Run by a social enterprise that helps unemployed young people access training, employment and mentoring. Has evening and special events. Also serves Tapas. Heritage site with plenty to learn about Colchester's rich history with connections to Nelson and Dr William Gilberd (also known as William Gilbert), the "father of electricity and magnetism" and medical advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. Indoor market has several traders providing an eclectic selection of ethnic products (Moroccan and Nepalese), vintage clothing, furniture, jewellery, vinyl, books and much more.

Where to stay in Colchester

A short train ride from London, Colchester is a university and working town. Hotels in the town center are near the main attractions, but for less expensive lodging consider a room near the university campus, which is situated in a tree-filled parkland.
