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.

Good cafe with appropriate service. Nice place for a coffee break. Try the ice tea, you won't be disappointed!

“Nice cafe”

Cozy cafe, get crowded @ evening! Was good to sit out and have a few beers and some small bites. Their pastas and salads are good, staff friendly.

“Good food and ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Visited twice, both times during the day...once for a drink and saw food looked good so visited again a few days later for lunch...good selection and reasonable quality although did look slightly better than it tasted. Nice ambience and decor...not polished but it is the rustic nature of it which give it it's charm.

“Average experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Food quality was not great. Milkshake was really fatty and tasteless and bill was expensive for what it was. Good service though.
