Cute little cafe with fresh and healthy food, refreshing drinks and delicious coffee specialties. The service staff is very friendly and quick. Location is right in the center. Highly recommended when you're in Kandy and looking for a more western Cafe.

My partner and I went to Buono because we were hoping for a good cup of coffee which we'd struggled with a little in Sri Lanka, and we were in luck. The ice coffees and espressos were great. The cafe has a cool vibe and...has an interesting on-trend menu. We had avocado toast which was great and there were various other options. Staff were very friendly. I'd definitely recommend it if you like good coffee and want to grab some lunch!More

we had lunch with a chicken salad, a chiquen wrap, and a non alcoholic mojito. All served in a nice and friendly style. All fresh made, a good place to cool your heels. Recommendable!

Amazing coffee. Great food- try the veggie wrap! Even run by local people, which is always lovely. Bonus—— they support a local children’s charity. I can’t fault this place at all. Best breakfast kinda place :))))
