The crepes were not the best I've eaten. The ham and cheese were the best. The pesto chicken crepe was too... More

Got the beef burrito for 950 rupees (before 10% service charge). Best meal that I have had since arriving in Sri Lanka! Nice comfort food.

To be honest this was one of the places that I had on my to do list in Galle but I encountered it unplanned. I was on the verge of getting a heat stroke and this place was a blessing. As the name suggests the crepes were great. Good coffee too. It has a decent ambience, one can choose to... More

Heard it was good so really wanted to go check this place out. At first it was a disaster trying to locate this place and I had already given up on it. But once found it was totally worth it. Absolutely loved it and no regret on the time we spent trying to find it :) I tried the Happy... More

Crepe-ology is a small cafe that can be very hard to find, like most places in the Galle Fort. Here is a link to a map that might make it a little easier. http://gallefortguide.com/map/ It's right next to The Royal Dutch Cafe (no. 23). It's above a shop so it isn't wheelchair or baby stroller friendly. We had to carry... More

On a steamy hot summer day, this cafe is a refreshing stop. Their menu of cold drinks, especially the flavored ice teas and the signature chillers, are divine. There is plenty on the menu besides crepes, including kid-friendly choices for picky eaters. I am partial to the sharing platter of hummus, bruschetta, chicken satay and mozzarella salad. I'm also glad... More

This little cafe owned by an American servers an amazing variety of tasty Crepes, refreshing mixed fruit juices in a laid back colorful and stylish atmosphere. Located in the heart of the Forth area above a collection of small boutique shops and jewelers around an open courtyard. For those looking to sample a Shisha pipe, these are also available. All...

Good crepes served on a lovely shaded terrace. Service is efficient and friendly. No fancy cuisine but a nice option if you look for a bit of a change from curry or seafood.
