What a lovely refreshing treat we had at this very trendy garden cafe with its on-point selection of coffees, smoothies and kombuchas, served with a holistic mix of a healthier option of Sri Lankan, Asian and European cuisines. My option of a Greek salad with...halloumi was a welcome alternative to the rich, heavy SL and Asian foods we’ve been eating for the past week in SL. My hubby even enjoyed the “greener” Pad Thai (sprinkled with copious amounts of spring onion). We paired our meal appropriately (in this heat) with an iced coffee mix, which was impressively served with a stainless steel straw! There is also good wifi available - always a bonus for the modern-techy-types! A great cafe concept for our ever-more-conscious going-green society.More

We stumbled upon this place two days before leaving Unawatuna, and are devistated we disn’t come here sooner. Best breakfast in town by miles! Their sweets are divine. We also tried out the savory eggbased breakfastdishes, which were also really good. Recomend trying out the...matcha, passionfruit pancakes!More

We had heard so much about Skinny Tom’s and it way lived up to the hype. The mango and matcha pancakes were delicious, but the classic Hoppers were the best we’d had from all over the island. Yes, you will pay a little more than...you would for hoppers elsewhere, but it is so worth it. The beetroot curry that accompanied them was a real highlight. And the coffee is also amazing.More

SkinnyTom’s deli has really good food, both traditional Sri Lankan and western food. The waiters are also amazingly kind. It might be a little more expensive then what you’re used to in Sri Lanka but it’s definitely worth it.

Visited here for brunch, nice staff free water and wifi and a choice of sitting outside, air con or non aircon rooms. Saw the famous hoppers on the menu so had to try them. Gluten free bacon and egg hoppers in a rice basket -...similar to an Indian dosa but the Sri Lankrans wont agee. Enjoyed the hoppers so will go back for more later.More

Nice venue with garden behind it, but the food was a real let-down. The pancakes were overcooked and dry and there's not much sorbet and cream served with them. Not sure that matcha granola really goes well with the dessert.

Lovely smoothies, nice vibe, this is a nice place to have a meal or coffe or take a break from the sun. We got the food a little cold, but it was tasty nonetheless. Would be good to see that fixed, but would definitely go...back.More

Came here multiple times during our stay in Unawatuna and tried something different each time we went. Food was consistently good and the wait staff were very friendly. Bonus that they take credit cards.
