“The horrid chocolate chip cheesecake”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

What I normally get is the opera cake,but this time I decided to get something new so I tried out the chocolate chip cheesecake and gosh. It was not a cheesecake to he honest! It was a disgusting taste to the mouth. I basically hate coffeestop now.And another thug is the music is very loud there.

“Comptetitve prices for the standards of the location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Beautiful sitting area, perfect for relaxing and catching up with friends. The latte I had was excellent, and the pastries available are priced comparable to standalone restaurants out in the city, that don't provide the same beautiful setting. So it is really win-win.

“Ideal for a Working Lunch or Leisurely Afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Very good freshly-made sandwiches with a diverse range of fillings, very good Sri Lankan "short-eats", excellent iced coffee, a range of gelato and a good selection of teas and coffees. The service is rather chaotic during "rush hours", though.

“Amazing jaggery cake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Visited the Coffee Stop for an afternoon snack in June 2012. Their jaggery cake was amazing - just enough sweetness and nice texture. They have a good selection of snacks and prices are very reasonable.
But, their service needs improvement. There is no order at the point of sale. Like most places in Sri Lanka, people don't line up - they just cluster. A rope line would introduce some order to ordering.

“Still the Stop of the Block”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Coffee Stop was always the meeting place, central point and for some of us, a place of solitude over a cup of coffee and good book :)
