“A cool refuge from the afternoon sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This a nice rootsy place in the Fort serving excellent milkshakes, lassis, ice-cream and suchlike. It's a cool refuge from the Galle heat and a very welcome one at that.

“Do not go on a tour with mrs. Serendipity”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The owner takes you on a tour around the fort. It is a very cliché tour with a lot of doubtful information. How can anybody who lived that long in the country has nothing interesting to say!
A waste of time and money!

“Amazing food, friendly staff, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We went here on a guidebook recommendation and were not disappointed. The food was delicious, some of the best we ate throughout our trip and the staff were very friendly.

“Good breakfast hoppers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

The place could be spruced up and the staff are friendly enough when they're not watching cricket. The real draw, of course, is the food. I had a delicious banana and mango hopper with the best lime juice I've ever experienced! Definitely a must have and probably the least expensive breakfast in the whole fort.

FYI: The address currently listed is wrong. The main entrance is on Leyn Baan St.

“Lovely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

I like how the cafe is set up. Food was really good on main dishes choices. 2nd time we came back and i ordered a roasted veggie salad with balsamic dressing. And it was basically stir fry veggie putting on top of lettuce. Really greasy and not nice.
