“Lovely and calming”
Review of Barefoot

Barefoot
Ranked #1 of 71 Shopping in Colombo
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This was the first place visited in Colombo. Arrived a little before opening time but were kindly directed round the back through the car park to the court yard. Lovely staff installed us at table to wait. Decided to have breakfast before browsing and found the English breakfast really good, so much toast!! Got so comfortable in the relaxing atmosphere it was almost with reluctance we ventured into the shop! (Staff realised how much we enjoyed the courtyard and so without asking reserved our table so we could wander in an out at will) lovely array of goods in vibrant colours at a good price. Staff happy to open cabinets of jewellery etc and answer questions. Back out for a fresh lime and soda (best in Colombo) then another mooch and more discoveries. Lovely way to while away a morning. Thank you.
(Also note there is a much smaller Barefoot in the Dutch Hospital don't get them confused)

just a cool place to hang out and look at the handloomed fabrics splashed with amazing bright and uplifting colors.

It is a great place to buy souvenirs and to shop for yourself and house. Everything is top quality and very well designed. Bought around 200$ stuff like toys, runner, cusion covers, decoration stuff and even a stool to carry back home. Must visit place in Colombo and Sri-lanka. Can be a reason to go back to Colombo again just for this shop.

The cake (carrot, coffee and chocolate) used to be fab. They had run out the last time I was there! It's a good place to chill out and bump into people - especially if you visit regularly.

Beautiful colourful linen, well make, quality fabrics- spent about $250 Australian in one hit just on table linen! Nice clothes, though limited simple designs. Superb bookshop full of unusual & interesting books. Nothing was cheap - similar prices to Australia - but the quality is outstanding!
