Coffee is one my biggest obsessions, and sadly Sri Lanka is not very well acquainted with good coffee for the most part, however in recent times this has changed thanks to a few gems such as this place. Cup cafe has a great vanilla latte that is worth a try, espresso could be better though. Their sandwiches are pretty yum... More

The Spicy Pineapple Waffle and the Vietnamese Iced Coffee I had here were simply Divine! The prices here are cheaper than most other coffee shops, and considering the quality of the food and the size of the portions, I will guarantee you it's well worth every penny. To add to that the atmosphere is so cozy and peaceful, and the... More

Cup cafe is a traveler's delight on a hot Colombo day. I had a double affogato, a cucumber lime mint water, and I got a 200g bag of coffee beans. Their coffee is simply delicious! Let me make this clear: These folks know how to pull a shot of espresso! The wifi isn't super-fast, but it is reliable. Above all,... More

Awesome location! Good ambience! The cold coffee, the smoothies are good. However the air conditioning is pitiable and the prices don't warrant the sweating out. Easy place to catch up with a friend for a while or perhaps read a book as a solo traveller just to escape the heat of Colombo. But if you are looking for crowds and... More

Quality, Taste and the presentation of the food is very good, Sandwiches has the option of selecting brown bread, which I see as a good thing for people who look for healthy meals.
