My favorite place to catch up on the news..

I'm at Hansa almost everyday and I usually go there early in the afternoon before lunch or on my way to work where I just stop by for a bit, grab a nice cup of coffee and catch up on the news. It's a great place frequented mostly by regulars and has one of the knowledgeable and quirky baristas... read more

Loved this little joint. A friend and I stopped for a quick grab-and-go, and we were surprised at the quality of Coffee. We visited the place again and learned more about the Coffee and ended up buying a few packets of powdered Coffee for future use. Fun Fact - While travelling I discovered a few top-notch 5 star-resorts using Hansa... More

A quaint little coffee shop, reminiscent of the 60's. A place to hide yourself or join one of the poetry circles that frequent this charming establishment!

We have been Hansa coffee fans for a while and dropped into their coffee shop to check it out. The coffee of course was good and we met a few interesting people (seemed regular visitors) to chat with. It seemed a more easy going place (nothing fancy) like other up-market joints. However, being a small place, the space is limited.

I love the location of the place! Such a go-between for me for work/home. Moreover, the staff is nice and friendly and despite the coffee takes a little while to be prepared, they offer free WiFi to compensate :)

Hansa Coffee shop tucked away on Fife Road in Colombo 5 is a little hidden treasure. It maybe owned by a Coffee Brand (albeit a small one) but the it's got a real warm and ral feel to it. It's the antithesis of your soul-less franchised coffee shops with no in-your-face branding or shouts of "HIIII!!" and "BYEEEEE!" as you... More

I am a regular customer here. I go here about three times a week or more for the past 2 years or more. Viraj who works there is always around and such a lovely person. Today when I went I heard the most terrible news that he has passed away. I cant imagine that place without Viraj. Everyone that came... More

Small and cosy place! They serve good fair trade coffee. The people who work there are so friendly and they offered me some of there chocolate to try. The coffee combines perfect with their homemade cakes.

What an amazing place! We had several different drinks here and they were all simply amazing. The chocolate is SUPER as are their sandwiches. Very friendly place to take a break and make some new friends. The staff, two boys named Viraj and Ephraim really know how to do things properly. On top of all this the prices are very... More
