I am an expat in Sri Lanka and have come to the Coffee Stop now for several years and thought it was time to write a review about the pro's and cons. I was delighted last Thursday to be welcomed by the new supervisor Sudesh Ranasinga (I asked for his name because of his superb service). He is the first... More

This is informal dessert bar by the lobby of ones of Sri Lanka’s deluxe hotels, the Cinnamon Grand. The atmosphere is casual, yet the service is top notch and the cakes, chocolates, ice creams and savoury snacks are very good. Tends to get busy and difficult to grab a seat, especially late in the evening. Good place to stop by... More

I have been visiting this shop for many years each time I am in Sri Lanka. It appears to be constantly struggling for an identity. Which is probably why the service is terrible - lots of people flapping around behind the counter and no one knowing exactly what service to offer to the poor customers who have to put up... More

Coffee stop is in the lobby are of cinnamon grand. Great atmosphere, quite busy any time of the day. If you manage to get seating, great place to hangout. Had some cakes and coffees recently and cannot say it is great, but average. They have a range of homemade ice creams as well, great portion and taste average again. Since... More

No visit to Colombo is complete for me without a trip to Coffee Stop in Cinnamon grand. There is just something about the high ceiling, the majestic chairs and the beautiful decor. Not to mention the gorgeous mouth watering array of pastries, sandwiches, drinks, desserts and coffees I could easily spend hours here with a good book or getting some... More

We come here often, and every time we come we are given the best service and the food is always good. the drinks have improved too, since the last time we came which is always good. The only suggestion we have is to change the menu. Its the same food items on the shelves and i think new things should... More

The staff at the Maitland Crescent are very friendly and helpful. This coffee shop is a lovely place to relax. I prefer to sit upstairs on comfortable chairs and during my second week in Colombo, this coffee shop became my second home. The chocolate chip cookies and American coffee with cold milk were delicious. No one hurries you and it... More

They serve some good coffee during the late hours..they are open till 12 and the only coffee place open that long (if I'm not wrong). The prices are pretty cheap. The tea that served was not up to standard!! They could have used a better and strong product.

Coffee Stop to our family will always be the nicest place to hang out despite there being so many other coffee places in Colombo. The ambience is crowded and bustling but interesting. With a wedding happening at the Atrium on many of the occasions that we've been there, it's a lovely place to sit and relax and observe people. The... More
