“Taste of Art and yumminess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

Found this easily in trip advisor, and certainly didn't disappoint! They have a plethora of art pieces for all sorts of things for the house, various vanity stuff for the body that are all natural, and novelty items that are just packed with color. You'll eventually find something that will catch your attention. It's a bit pricy though, so look first before you buy. And do grab a milkshake before you go :)

“Good food and lots of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We came to the Barefoot Garden Cafe for a very late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. There was a terrific jazz fusion band playing and the atmosphere was cool despite the heat. Food was good and reasonably priced, and the drinks were properly chilled. Service is brisk and friendly. The attached air conditioned shop is probably the best shopping experience in Colombo.

“Great place to relax from the hustle n bustle of Colombo.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Whenever in Colombo Barefoot always pulls me there for lunch.
I especially like the quiche but other dishes I have had have also been nice.
Tony the manager does a great job talking to customers and running the place.
There is nice background music and another thing that catches my nose is the nice smell as you walk in from the shop.
Def worth a vist!
