Good for: Outdoor seating
Description: Sells a collection of novel short-eats made with soy, such as wades, and roti rolls and sandwiches filled with soy sausage. The biggest attraction are the vegan the generous soy soft-serve ice cream cones.The open-air counter high above the street is extremely popular with locals, though service is prompt. Also sells typical vegetable buns and rolls, and bulk soy products such tofu and tempeh can be purchased there. And exciting find for the dairy-free traveller. Trucks in Kandy also sell the so called "soy ice cream", in smaller portions, though the ice cream at the Soya Centre is the tastiest and has the best quality.

We had find memories of the ice cream here and eight years later it was just as good. Delicious. Light and refreshing with a great flavour. Different from any other.

After reading about this place on Tripadvisor, we went looking for it the evening we reached Kandy. Unfortunately it was closed. We went back the next day in the afternoon and it was open. We had both chocolate and vanilla flavour ice creams. I preferred the chocolate and my husband preferred the vanilla. They melt quickly so sit outside and... More

Cheap, clean and good quality Food. This is a totally vegetarian food outlet. "Soya Beans" are used for most food products here, that why it is popular as Soya Center. Highly recommend.

Thank you very much for your recommendation. Yes, we extract the soy milk from soybeans which are grown in Dambulla. Since we carry out the whole process by ourselves we could easily and quite confidently guarantee the best quality. Hope you visit us again, soon. More

Context: We (two of us) are vegan. We ordered two ice creams and a soya rotti. The place was busy. It was hot, so an ice cream in the shade was perfect. We haven't had soft serve in years, no one has soy soft serve in South Australia. It was sweet and soft, standard cone. Quite similar to a McDonalds... More

It is located on the second floor, so I couldn't see it right away. It looks like you are about to walk into the YMCA (!) but it is there, to the left. I think the icecreams are worth it. The chocolate flavor was the best, the strawberry tasted a little artificial. Good spot to pick up picknick foods before... More
