“Great lunch”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Stumbled upon this place when we were hungry. Sampled several filled pastries (vegetarian). Many locals were eating there which is always a good sign that it's not a tourist trap. Price was reasonable and waiter was excellent.

“Good for a quick snack”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

As the name suggests, they have lots of fresh baked goods, cakes, sweet pastries and "short eats" (what the locals call the meat-filled rolls, savory pastries and deep-fried snacks available around lunch and afternoon.

There is a long pastry country at the front facing the street where the staff are friendly and the cakes are fresh. This seems to be only for taking away. If you want to eat it there, you need to buy it and go inside to a table...there you can order tea or coffee to go with it.

Inside, they also have a fairly large menu of typical offerings, but I only had the pastries and a drink. Atmosphere is okay but not really nice.

Most people seem to eat in there guest houses or hotels for the evening meal, as there is not much of a restaurant scene in Kandy.

“Tip Top!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Great for families, with spice free for timid kids & rice and curry for braver oldies. Lovely post colonial building in great location, reasonable prices and good service. Short eats are great, egg rolls my choice.
Take away from outside is also good for self catering.
