“Finally decaf coffee in Colombo!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Absolutely loving the fact that Coco Veranda offers decaf coffee option and their coffees are awesome! My toddler loves his cheese toast (without chillies) and babychinos. The food is very good overall, especially the burgers, pasta and salad. I was tempted to order the rice and curry option being offered at their Branch in Crescat boulevard.. That would give me a reason to go back next time I am in the area. Keep up the good effort Team Coco!

“Good addition”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

It's a good addition to Crescat..
seating is ofcourse is very limited. But few times that I have been, I received good service and good drinks.
Not sure about having meals there, but will give it a shot and share the experience.

“Disgusting”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Coco Veranda had been a long term breakfast favourite for us - my husband and I had enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, which does not feature on many Colombo menus. Our last experience, however, had been bad, so we hadn't been for several months. We decided to give it another go, thinking they may have sorted out the problem in that time. Unfortunately no. The 'Eggs Benedict' was served on a barely toasted hamburger bun (come on, if not an English muffin at least source some decent bread!) It involved some sort of questionable thin meat - not ham, which would have been acceptable - maybe chicken ham (it tasted very artificial). Then came the overcooked eggs. Then a thick yellow layer of what one would expect to be hollandaise sauce. Unfortunately it did not taste like hollandaise in the least - it was absolutely disgusting; really just like melted butter but thick, and again, very artificial tasting. I tried to eat it but just couldn't - it was too horrible. It is quite simple - google a recipe for hollandaise, use a decent bread (ciabatta for instance), serve with proper bacon or ham, and the yolks should be runny! Not rocket science! Coco Veranda is a nice place but this particular dish really is an embarrassment - I'm so glad we didn't bring anyone else with us!

“Probably the coziest coffee stop in Colombo...”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Haven't tasted the food much but their coffees (especially the Deluxe Frappuchino) and cakes are delicious. But what makes this place unique is is comfortable authentic atmosphere. The couches are inviting for hour long chats, or just to do some work in the evenings. So grab a coffee and go cocos... :)
