“Great and inexpensive coffee”
Review of Cafe Zen

Cafe Zen
Ranked #2 of 5 Coffee & Tea in Negombo
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 29, 2018 via mobile

The setting is wonderful and the coffee is great. The owner obviously takes pride in the quality. He roasts his own locally sourced beans and uses fresh milk- not at all standard for Sri Lanka

Zen cafe is not a cafe, its an experience. Defenitly pay a visit to the toilet, even if you don't need to. Prices are too low.

The cappuccino was for Dutch standards an 8.7/10, for Sri Lankan standards 10/10. Would visit again if we didn't flew away tomorrow.

Thats by far the best place to have a coffee. He roast the coffee beans by himself and makes it the italian way. Wonderful. A charming place run by a charming man.
