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.

“Antique café”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

Lovely food and drinks. The chocolate milkshake is really nice and so is the latté. Its a very homely cozy place to relax and play some cards or chill out and take a breather.

“Definitely the place to relax over a cup after walking down narrow cobble stone roads in ancient Dutch Fort”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

An interesting cafe on a narrow paved road in old Dutch Fort, a world heritage site in Galle. Friendly attentive staff. Reasonably good selection of food with a variety of pasta. Had fish & carbonara. Fish (tuna, seer was not available) was somewhat dry. Definitely the place to hang out & stretch your legs after a long walk exploring the Fort. A chilled beer would have been lovely, but unfortunately they dont serve alcohol..!

“good atmosphere, responsive wait staff”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

very nice atmosphere with eclectic seating areas - both tables and couches. selection of pastas, seafood, salads, soups, and small selection of local options. would recommend the penne with mushrooms or the aioli if you like garlic. my son liked the carbonara a lot but I thought the pasta was a bit overcooked. salads were very fresh and crunchy. also had a large selection of teas. wish we had time to try some desserts but we did have good ice-cream at their gelato counter across the street.
