Description: Welcome to Pedlars Inn. Established in 2004 as the first coffee shop inside the UNESCO Heritage Site, Galle Fort, Southern Sri Lanka. From humble beginnings, starting with only 4 tables and one member of staff, the café has developed into a must for all visitors. It now occupies the entire ground floor of the former British post office. Maintaining original features mixed with contemporary design to deliver a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Situated on the historic Pedlars Street at the heart of the Fort, Pedlars Inn provides the perfect respite to a busy day’s exploration of the Ramparts or indulging in the numerous shops and boutiques.

Friendly staff, good menu, comfortable environment to have a meal, a drink, a snack. Oh and clean toilets really helps! Great place to get away from the heat or when it starts to rain on a lazy afternoon. Prices are affordable too. $10 for a beef steak and rice with salad, all cooked to order! $5 for a sandwich and I tried the brownie and the cheesecake which is very good for Sri Lanka's standard. Waiting for the Pedlar's Inn Gelato shop across the street to re-open for the season!

We had lovely lunch in Pedlar In, having Grilled avocado prawns, Avocado salad and Butter chicken curry. Everything was great! Fresh juices were also tasty, no water, sugar or lemonade added :) like it happened to us in other places. Staff was nice, place was calm and we really enjoyed.

We just had Coffee and Soda but when we passed by later the place was packed during lunch.

They will be adding Italian gelato
Items which opens this Friday.

During the evening they have live music as well.

A place that will be in everyone's list if one is visiting this corner of the island.

Nice staff, I like the layout of the restaurant, the most though. I came here a couple of nights with quite a few of us. The delivery of food was promptly bought and the tea was lovely, as always in Sri Lanka. Everyone else in the restaurant seemed to really enjoy it. A lot of character.
