Firstsite in Colchester saw its new Terrace Café, run by LEAFI, open its doors for the first time in March. Firstsite is set to join the ranks of other prestigious cultural venues including the Courtauld Gallery, the Whitechapel Gallery and the Turner Contemporary, all of which have LEAFI cafés and restaurants. The Terrace Café has an informal, comfortable feel, with outside seating on the south-facing terrace. The food and drinks menu draws from the best suppliers of the region with provenance being of the utmost importance.
Matthew Rowe, director of Firstsite, said: ‘We are really excited to be welcoming LEAFI to Firstsite. Their reputation for excellent food and service combined with their local sourcing policies will make them a brilliant partner of Firstsite and a great asset to Colchester.’
Liam Farrell, founder and director of LEAFI, added: ‘LEAFI is run by a team of expert foodies. We source our ingredients from small, local suppliers who support our beliefs in fair trade, sustainability and the finest quality. Firstsite is a spectacular building and a wonderful place for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake, lunch or for corporate events, parties and receptions. We have enjoyed working with local suppliers and producers.’
