Absolutely love the coffee here, the best coffee we have had in Sri Lanka, all the staff were female too which was great to see! Couldn’t recommend more if you’re a coffee lover in Kandy :-)

I found there are a variety of dishes including French and Japanese in this cozy cafe. But the most remarkable thing is that this cafe pursues the quality of Sri Lankan Coffee. Its basic style is French Press, and for Ice selection, a waiter shakes...coffee by cocktail shaker in Italian style by our table. How entertaining and tasty !More

The location of the cafe is 200m from the Temple of Tooth Relic. We found the only place to have freshly roasted Ceylon Coffee. We really enjoyed cups with French Press and Ice Shakerato in Italian Style. Highly recommended for coffee lovers.

Desperate for a good coffee after 6 days of being in Sri Lanka we googled places in Kandy and Natural Coffee came up. Had a latte which looked and tasted fabulous. Pleasant service and got tempted by the tempura ice cream which was delicious. I...think it's now run by a women's collective. Definitely recommend if you want a good coffee.More

Sign on the door said from 25.1.2020 open from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm. We came at 7:30 following google maps and found this out. When we came back at 11 am they were still boarded up, not sure if it is a long holiday...or what.More

This small shop was started by a Japanese man and his Sri Lankan partner as a way to encourage the development of coffee growing for poor farmers in the country. The coffee was fabulous, the staff gracious and while we didn't have any food the...Japanese food options looked quite enticing!More

This place is very peaceful in the busy streets of Kandy. The coffee was delicious, nice background music, temperature not cooled down to freezing, which is often the case in other cafes!

This is a really strange place, part Japanese School, part cafe. But the coffee is really good, and it's a fair price. I had all kinds of coffee here which was good. My only negative comment would be we had some ramen here one morning...to try but it seemed more like ramen from a packet. I'm not overly sure they actually make this here.More

We've been here twice so far for our morning coffee - and had double espresso (so so), filtered coffee (easy tasting and okay) and hot matcha tea (very good). Its a no fuss place with okay service as you get what you asked for in...the end. Would recommend if you need your coffee fix in the mornings!More
