We visited this place twice. We loved it so much. First time we browsed the store and ate at the cafe. The store is bright and colorful. Staff are semi friendly. The cafe has great food and very attentive staff. Order the pork or the spinach quiche. Both are excellent. Remember that between 2pm and 5pm you cannot order drinks... More

It has such a side collection of hand craft items, it's a bit pricey compared to laksala but has high quality products. From stationary items to clothing you can get just about anthing that is hand crafted in here. It also has a amazing garden cafe, with special performances almost everyday. Awesome place for tourists and travelers to buy something... More

This beautiful shop specialises in Sri Lankan textile products but also has great books, small artefacts, hand-made toys, art works and many other things suitable for a traveller as small gifts for folks back home. Their clothing is cool and eclectic. The sales staff are not pushy and have more than one language. This may not be the cheapest shop... More

Just a decked place to attract the visitors.. Nothing Sri Lankan or real.Just a commercial farce. Most of the products are locally over priced but then we tourist covert and it just seems a couple of dollars!

This shops stocks local curios and produce of excellent quality. The colours are vivid and reflective of those used in ancient Sri Lankan art.

This is a nice place to shop and see authentic art work and handicraft works. The entrance to the store seemed very uncommon and classic. There were some good pierces of artwork and clothing.

It subsumes the spirit of the city. A quiet, relaxed place with an amazing selection of books, artifacts, clothing, souvenirs that you can carry back home. Located in a quiet residential part of Colombo, this place should be a must to-do in your colombo itinerary. It has an open cafe where you can enjoy a good read.

This shop sells a wide range of gifts, handicrafts, textiles, clothing, art works, books and toiletries. The hand woven fabrics are special and brightly coloured. We bought a bowl (LKR680.00) and placemats (LKR400.00 each), made of newspaper which is a great recyling advertisement. At the back of the shop is the outdoor cafe which is well worth a lunchtime break... More
