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)
