It's quite easy to miss this place. However, this place is a must visit. It's one of the best coffee shops in town! Go there just for the coffee if not even the atmosphere. It's usually quiet and relaxing that you can sip a nice cup of coffee and get some work done. Oh and they can do hot chocolate... More

We were misled into going there by the flattering reviews below. The place was very shabby and the begger families living just outside the window made it even worse. This place just doesn't have the cozy elegance of the dozens of other Coffee shops in Colombo. The staff are untrained and the way they all huddle together to get a... More

Dear Mr. Gayan, Thank you for sharing your photos and feedback via Tripadvisor. I am sorry to see that your visit fell short of expectations. Every Coffee-shop/Café have its’ strength and limitation. For a small coffee-shop like Cup Café, we do find difficult to accommodate big crowd. Presently, we have only 36 seats indoor and 10 seats in our garden... More

If you have half an hour treat yourself to a quality caffeinated (or decaf) beverage in an a/c'd WiFi'd environment. It was only my second vist and the barista new my order and produced a top notch flat-white. A skilled, personable team.

Columbo is more walkable than many large Asian cities, but it isn't the kind of place where one easily discovers charming places to stop. It was the Trip advisor sign that reminded me that I had seen a positive review of the Cup Cafe. This is a nice place to chill for a while, get a good sandwich and have... More

Cup Cafe is hidden away on the outside near the Jumma Mosque. On the outside it just looks like a small cafe but the inside is excellently done with a surprising good selection of foods and beverages and even board games. Recommended for friends to hang out at.

This place is literally hidden in a very busy area which makes it more appealing. ..the staff are really friendly and the food is good. They have a wide range of coffee yet not much savoury items. What I really enjoyed was that you can just kill time and just relax.i just bought a cold americano (Rs 350) and enjoyed... More
