Discovering Leigh-on-Sea’s Best Coffee Shop (in our opinion!)

Nestled in the heart of Leigh-on-Sea, a quaint yet vibrant corner of Essex known for its bustling high street and picturesque seafront, is a treasure trove for coffee enthusiasts and art lovers alike: Create98. While our main passion is fostering creativity through our arts and crafts workshops, we also pride ourselves on offering a unique café experience that many locals consider the best coffee shop in town.

Here’s why:

Create98 is not just your typical coffee stop but a community hub that brings together coffee, creativity, and comfort.

A Coffee Experience Wrapped in Creativity

At Create98, we understand that the perfect cup of coffee is part of a bigger picture—the ambiance, the service, and the complementary activities that make your visit worthwhile. Our café is designed to be a cosy retreat from the hustle and bustle, where you can enjoy a carefully crafted espresso or a soothing latte made from our unique blend that you will not find anywhere else

More Than Just a Great Brew

What sets Create98 apart is our vibrant community atmosphere. It’s a place where you can relax with a book, catch up on work with our free Wi-Fi, or meet friends for a chat. It’s also an inspirational workspace for our workshop participants. Imagine sipping your coffee as you dabble in watercolours or sketching—it’s all part of the Create98 experience.

A Menu That Complements Every Cup

Our menu features a variety of homemade treats that perfectly complement our coffee offerings. From scrumptious cakes and pastries to healthier options like salads and sandwiches, there’s something to satisfy every palate. All our food is prepared with the same attention to detail and quality as our beverages, making every meal a culinary delight.
