“Yummy Bread”

Galle Oriental Bakery.
Ranked #83 of 125 Restaurants in Matara
Description: This bakery is mentioned in Lonely Planets. The buns, patties and cakes are too good. The tea is superb and the cold drinks are ice cold. It is an excellent stop for travellers moving on to the mountain area from here as they can easily get some stuffed packed for the journey as there are no good restaurants on the Tissa Ella Road . We stocked up a lot of bakery products and cold drinks for our journey and saved a lot of money and hassle.

Our Tuk Tuk driver made us stop here it must have been his brothers' however the cakes and Sri Lankan snacks were too good to be true. Nice fresh tea as good as I make it and we paid the bill at the end but only for what we consumed.

Very shabby, dark unkempt interior does not give great confidence about the state of the kitchens.
short eats (snacks) out front look okay but I had the rice and curry and it was mediocre.
staff are effective but charmless.
However to be fair, I had no health problems after this experience, I just fail to see how/ why this is a recommendation by Rough Guides. There are thousands of places like this in Sri Lanka and nothing impressive about this one.
I don't mean to be harsh, but my constructive advice would be clean it up, give it a lick of paint, teach the staff to engage a bit, try and create some ambiance (lighting etc) and it may have merit.

This bakery is located on the main road of Matara. It sells mouthwatering cakes, short eats, and buns. The short eats come in a plate, you eat as many as like and in the end you are only billed for those you ate- not the whole plate. Everything is super fresh. The tea served here is awesome and the cold drinks are ice cold. We were so impressed by the GOB's products that we got a whole picnic basket packed for our 5 hour journey to Ella. I would suggest that everyone should do this because there are no proper restaurants on the Tissa road.
