This place has got it right. If you want to get the best coffee in Kandy, good food and a great atmosphere then find your way to Bruno Cafe. Also they support street children so your money goes further and gets support for the needy.

Super cheap and tasty! Plus it has an ethical conscience, with proceeds from sales going towards educating disadvantaged children. A nice surprise :)
