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.

We stumbled upon this place one evening after an afternoon exploring galle fort. My wife and I both had rice and curry which was delicious.

We were told about Pedlar's Inn cafe/jewellery store by friends in Colombo. So we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. The spicy prawn/rice combo was absolutely delicious and so was the cosy atmosphere, service, open kitchen and meals ordered by other friends. A definite pit stop for Galle Fort visitors. In the bargain, you can also shop for some amazing silver jewellery in the annexe.

Pedlers Inn used to be a hidden gem, but no more, everyone knows about pedlers and everyone loves this place! The interior has become nice over the years and food definitely has improved. Service is great and I would say compared to all other restaurants around pedlers and church street the prices are pretty decent. Got to say it gets really busy during night time.

There is an ice cream parlor/shack right infront of pedlers which compliments the meal. So if you think the dessert menu is too expensive just go get an ice cream!

We had a nice table out the front as inside was quite full. We inquired about the tuna and how they cooked it as we had experienced over cooked Tuna a few times in Sri Lanka. The staff ( who dressed in black and in a threesome made us think of The Mafia) assured us it would be just seared. But no it was overdone,a shame as we have not been back and we have been here for 10days
