British Sandwich Week 2024

With British Sandwich Week 2024 coming up on the 20th-26th of May, what better time to celebrate eating glorious sandwiches in Colchester? We recommend you check out the British Sandwich Week 2024 blog about why sandwiches hold a special place in British hearts, for more information on why sandwiches are so special to us Brits.

At Bon Appetit, we refer to ourselves as the small caterers with big flavours. Located in a cosy premise on Crouch Street in Colchester, we offer mouth-watering buffet catering, delicious sandwich platters and customisable sandwich options, so we can make pretty much any sandwich that your heart desires!

We offer more than just tasty food on the go, we also provide catering services for weddings, birthdays, corporate events and more, taking all the hassle out of the planning process on these big days. We believe we provide the best sandwich platters Colchester have to offer too.

If you’re looking for the best fresh sandwiches for grab-and-go made in front of you or for delivery we hope that you choose us! However, if you decide to sit somewhere on a rainy day, for example, and since British Sandwich Week 2024 is coming up, we thought we’d share the love by mentioning some of our favourite places to sit in and enjoy a sandwich in Colchester too.

In Colchester, there are many places to eat sandwiches, but we hope this blog can help you choose the best place for you, or highlight somewhere new!

Below we have listed our favourite 4 unique places that offer seating for larger groups, and have something a bit special about them, ranging from places which support communities with disabilities, to those where you can play board games when you eat and others because they’re placed in quirky listed buildings. We’ve included child-friendly places too so there should be something for everyone to celebrate British Sandwich Week 2024!

British Sandwich Week 2024

1. Level Best Cafe

Level Best Cafe is a social enterprise started by the Dacon Trust, which intends to create training opportunities for adults and young people with learning disabilities.

The Level Best cafe offers fresh food in a cafe based on St Johns Street, Colchester. It has a lively bright and light atmosphere which is enough to put anyone in a good mood, ideal for British Sandwich Week 2024!

They offer training for those with learning disabilities in gardening, catering, and art activities and even have their own gallery at the back of the cafe showcasing the best art of their own and of local artists who can hire the space, so you can check out some amazing artwork with your coffee in hand.

If you want to support your local community and those with learning disabilities, whilst eating some great freshly made, reasonably priced food, or even just check out the gallery, this could be the place for you.
