Perfect little coffee shop for a fancy cup of local coffee. Loads of options for both cold and hot coffees. Spiced cappuccino is wonderful and so is the ice chilli chocolate and the frappes. It's a small little place and you could hear the coffee being ground which adds to the authenticity. Not many staff but service is great!!!!

Hansa Coffee Cafe is a chilled, laid-back venue where people hang out clicking their laptop keyboards or concluding deals on their mobile phones. It has a very small seating area but provides a good, relaxed ambience. The menu is excellent with plenty of coffee-based beverages offered as well as a small selection of cakes and savouries.

Best coffee (local) in the city. Chocolate there is also made of locally grown and cultivated cacao. The barista is super knowledgeable and friends. The cafe itself super cosy and arty. One of my fave addresses in Colombo.

A local coffee shoppe offering local produce is rather rare here. So Hansa and Island are the only ones I believe. Though Harischandra is a better known household name, I don't think that they run a shoppe. So Hansa came in as a surprise. And a good one. Their repertoire runs long with black, milk, condensed milk, coconut milk, espresso,... More

Without doubt the best coffee place I visited during my stay in Sri Lanka (and that's a lot to say because I visited so many of them). The waiter was the nicest and the selection of treats and drinks was just divine! We went there all the way from Negombo just to have nice cup of coffee and buy some... More
