“Coffee OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

The coffee was ok, nothing special, but at least it not instant. I had to drink it black without milk because the milk smelled sour. My wife had a cappuccino that was delicious. A little inconsistent, but very mediocre.

“Very Good..... Less space... need more chairs :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

I have been to Java Lounge couple of occasions, and the experience was very good. however they seems to suffer from a scarcity of chairs compared to the number of guests that were there. However overall it was ok. The Americano was good but the blend seemed to be bit milder. Could have been much stronger. less punch.

Beautiful setting, you can have a very lengthy chat without been interrupted. Service was good.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

It's ideal for someone who prefer a peaceful time. Food is comparatively expensive though the quality is fine.

“COSY COFFEE LOUNGE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Java Lounge I frequented is located on Jawatte Road, Colombo 00005. It has a wide open front designed to park and drop in without a hitch. The location is great and is tucked away from traffic. The interior is indeed cosy and complete with a dark room located just before the restrooms.

The staff are trained and professional. The products are what they ought to be. If you are a Starbucks fan or crave for the Barnes & Noble experience, you would not be disappointed here! They are popular and stay busy.

There is free wi-fi on the house. If you insist on being under the sun, they have an outdoor seating area with wooden furniture under a polycarbonate roof.

I do enjoy this lounge and happily recommend it.

“Good Coffee, High Price!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

The ambiance of the coffee shop is very nice. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. They have tables and couches to suite any type of crowd that visits. Menu items are displayed on a board. Service is good and fairly quick. It is a very nice place to meet up or chill out. They don't throw you out like most places in colombo.

The coffee was very good to Sri Lankan standards. Though I couldn't find anything "starbucks" about the place or the coffee. Can't really compare with the starbucks abroad standards. The potion size was decent but i felt it should have been larger since the cream(topping) occupies some space.

The oreo cheese cake was tasty but there was only a tiny oreo on top which was an utter embarrassment.

The price for all this was pretty high and costs more than our lunch. Pity us who cant get reasonable AND decent coffee in Colombo.
