About Made & Found Colchester
We are a local family-run business and a cafe with a difference! We also specialise in all things handmade (Made) and vintage (Found), and source all of our handmade food and craft items from local independent crafters, bakers and makers. We invite you to come and relax, or catch up with friends, in the warm, inviting and eclectic surroundings of our delightful cafe and shop.
We provide our customers with locally roasted quality coffee, locally baked fresh cakes and homemade hot snacks. We have a range of food offerings to cater for all dietary requirements, including a very wide range of vegan cakes and bakes, as well as gluten-free options. As our excellent reviews evidence, our customers really appreciate the effort we go to on their behalf. Our full menu is available below if you want to whet your appetite!
Additionally, we are very dog friendly, so feel free to bring you fluffy friends along: We make for the perfect place to stop past on your dog walk!
We are proud of our curated collection of local handmade items such as scarves, resin chopping boards, scented candles and jewellery. We also stock vintage finds, which sometimes have our own creative touch applied; with upcycled furniture, lamps and repurposed items on display. Our resident ‘furniture detectives’ are also able to source vintage items you may be looking for… Pop in and have a chat with any of our friendly team, and have a cuppa while you browse!
Our creative flair is also brought to use in our craft workshop sessions, which run mostly on Sunday crafternoons. We run a range of short one-stop workshops in a range of crafts, such as; crochet, embroidery, lino-cutting, knitting, machine-sewing and cross stitch. Again, our full workshop programme is above.
Keep in touch and up to date with us by following our social media pages. We post regular updates and imagery of our latest menu additions, vintage finds and any other news and info we have.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
Francis and the team.
