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.

“Very spacious and casual”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2010

It was almost empty at 4pm on a Friday except for a French couple. The service is prompt and not over-friendly. Sandwiches and fries are delicious. It has both outdoor and indoor dining area. The indoor dining area has comfortable couches and a TV that plays Travel Living Channel. At the back of the cafe, there is a hammock which i'm unsure if anyone uses it. The toilet is very pretty, with rock flooring and natural light.
