Your local Colchester catering service
Freshly prepared food doesn’t only have to be enjoyed in our Colchester city centre cafe, we now offer food on the go with our local catering service.
How do Trainees get involved in our local Colchester catering service?
As well as preparing delicious buffet lunches for local businesses, our café trainees are also given the opportunity to cater for a range of offsite events, which have previously included a wedding at Dedham Vale Vineyard and a Christmas Party for Pioneer Sailing Trust held at Brightlingsea University Sailing Club.
“I really like baking things in the kitchen with my friends. My favourite cake to make is definitely the Victoria Sponge Cake, it tastes delicious” – Dean
What makes Level Best different from other catering companies?
Here at Level Best, it’s not just our home-grown local produce that makes us different, it’s our close-knit community of trainees. Through group workshops and one-to-one support, our trainees develop a range of work and life skills which help them grow into confident and independent individuals.
Our catering trainees have been trained to cook all of our menu items using fresh and locally sourced produce, most of which is grown on our nearby allotment. Whether you’re craving some Mediterranean treats or a classic Sausage Roll, we cater to all tastes here in our city centre café.
In true Bake-Off style, our trainees are challenged to test out delicious new baking recipes to tempt anyone with a sweet tooth. Freshly baked to order, including those with specialist dietary requirements, our cakes are available to order throughout the year and include staples like Victoria Sponge and Carrot Cake.
Buffet & Party Catering
Organising a party, staff meeting or corporate event is stressful enough without having to arrange for a buffet platter selection catering to all tastes. Café trainees here at Level Best Enterprises work hard to produce freshly prepared buffets that can either be collected or delivered locally directly to your door using Colchester’s Eco-Friendly E-Cargo Bike service.
Sandwich platters, cakes and more with our catering to order service
With menu items ranging from Mediterranean Kebabs and homemade tzatziki to Mini Quiche’s and Sausage Rolls, there’s something for everyone on our buffet menus. If you’d like to chat to us about including a celebration cake or a special platter of sandwiches, we’d love to hear from you.
Delicious cakes baked to order in our Colchester kitchen
If you’re celebrating a special birthday, anniversary, or are simply craving a slice of cake, we offer a range of delicious cakes for you to order and collect in-store from our Colchester café.
From classic sponges to red velvet, all of our cakes are baked to order by our trainees – who love challenging themselves with new recipes, including gluten free and vegan alternatives. We also love to fulfil orders from local businesses, clubs and other organisations.
