Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited for a early lunch, nice peaceful atmosphere, menu although limited had a selection to suit most people, salad with grilled sandwich good (if a little greasy) a good choice of juices and smoothies Staff very friendly and had no problem with a wait for...food. Its at the back of a very well presented and stocked shop which is mainly childrens books, excellent choice for all ages as well as some local crafts/cards/limited childrens clothing. Will try again now I have given up on the lackadaisical service at the Seed cafe further down the road.More

My Family and I are daily visiting here during our stay in Sri Lanka. The staff here is really polite and hospitable. The food is equally of good fresh quality along with the quality of food. Areas, where improvement can happen, is the speed of...food delivery for the table, however, the wait is not too long. As this is a great place for digital Nomads to work my suggestion to the management is to have some power outlets available to charge once electronic devices.More

I have often ordered from Milk and Honey, and finally decided to try out the space now that dining in is an option. The food is — as always — tasty and wholesome. Enticing fresh juices and dessert options are plentiful. Finally, there is plenty...of space for seating, so no need to feel crowded. I can recommend any of the bowls - grilled chicken bowl is my favorite - and the chicken lasagne. Also several good options for vegans. In addition to the food, the atmosphere is relaxing and casual. Definitely recommend.More

A great place for fresh, healthy and tasty food which is not of the mainstream kind. They also serve the best coffee I have had so far in Sri Lanka.

In the middle of a rushed busy day in Colombo we could retreat for a lovely and really delicious meal in this smoothie/coffee bar. There are a few tables in the back of a shop and one can enjoy the meal outside. The have an...outstanding and inventive menu. The sweet treats were as healthy as they were tasty and the falafel wrap was outstanding. Though it was kind of pricey compared to the Sri Lankan standard, worth it. 100% recommend this!More

This food was delivered, not dine-in. Have been to a restaurant awhile back but I can't comment on that visit as I don't recollect that experience but this food was amazing. Good portions of healthy fare.

The food at Milk & Honey is quite expensive - and so the menu prices can initially be a little off-putting. But the food is very good indeed, with fresh and wholesome ingredients and appealing recipes. A nice selection of brunch-y, salad-y,lunch-y items, fresh juices...and amazing cakes and cookies. Probably worth those daunting prices! And the cafe is set at the back of a kid's book/toyshop, so probably good for those with small kids. Everyone is very nice, friendly, and polite. But the service is pretty poor, and the whole setup feels amateurish. I have been to the cafe three times in the last couple of weeks. Every time at least one of the orders brought to the table was wrong, and every time we had to wait an absurd length of time for the food to come. Different people got their food at different times, so we also weren't able to eat together. Quite frankly, for a cafe that charges these prices and purports to be an upmarket place this isn't up to scratch - however good the food is, and however nice, chatty and polite the staff is. People do not have infinite time to wait, re-order and wait again, and if a group of people come together then they probably want to eat together. Apart from this (rather notable!) letdown, it's nice. A great setting. Easy parking. Excellent food. Nice people and ambience. Please, Milk & Honey, just remember that you have paying customers.More

Oasis in Cinnamon Gardens It was our first day in Colombo and we were a bit taken aback by the hustle and bustle of the city. We desperately needed some food as a pick me up and Milk and Honey was the perfect choice. Soulful...and nutritious food all round. We would highly recommend the brownie to finish. Great vegan options too!More

This is an oasis amidst Lankan rice and curry. The food was fresh and delicious and the menu varied. Mostly vegetarian and vegan but with token fish and chicken options that also looked appetising. I had the salad with spinach and herb fritters, okra, roast...pumpkin and homemade paneer. I was really pleased with it and it was refreshing to get some vegetables in my diet! The juices tasted a little watered down but were obviously fresh. On an aside - My husband had the poached eggs with avocado. He was a little underwhelmed, mainly as he was hungry and this didn't hit the spot for him. He was disappointed that his zucchini and sweetcorn fritters were cold and rubbery. I feel like this place is probably ideal for people who seek a healthy option but perhaps less ideal for hungry men! However, I would still recommend it and it is definitely worth a try, whatever your preferences may be. Accommodating of young children - high chair was kindly provided and there was a place to change a nappy. Service was excellent. Nice outdoor atmosphere. The cafe is accompanied by a fantastic children's book and toy shop - it had a vast and eclectic selection and is worth a visit in its own right.More

I was back at the cafe this December and once again absolutely loved the menu. This is the one place in Colombo where you are guaranteed a full range of refreshing juices and good healthy food with fresh ingredients and really thoughtful creative recipes. There’s...a lot of thought and planning behind the final product. I really appreciate the fact we have access to this fresh tasty and really healthy cuisine.More

Went for lunch at this little cafe at the back of a children’s store. Superb variety of food that was typical of cafes back in Melbourne. I ordered the falafel salad bowl. Delicious filling and with lentybif fresh salads. Okra salad was particularly tasty as...was the hommus. My daughter had the breakfast with baked beans and Avocado and it was very delicious. The sweet tomato relish was beautiful with the sausage. The cakes we couldn’t resist and the gf brownie was fabulous. In the two months I have been in Sri Lanka I haven’t been able to eat any cake at bring cealiac. This was just great. Totally hit the spot. Coffee was good too from a machine not Sri Lankan coffee. Afterwards we purchased some books for a gift. Great amount of books for sale especially if you are after books from British publishersMore

Amazing spot to chill in Colombo, centrally located. My go to brunch spot after Yoga @ Prana Lounge. Staff is very friendly and attentive, The Fresh Juices are TRULY FRESH, no added sugar or water. There are about 10 carefully select combination of Juices to...choose from. A healthy selection of food; all day breakfast, wraps, salad bowls and Smoothies. it's out the back of the children's store. they also use reusable straws. Very quiet place with back garden with outdoor seatings, a good spot to have chitchat with friend over a cup of tea with some cookies or brownies. I have been here many times , my only criticism is the broken coffee machine few times. Thank god for the fresh juices to beat the heat tho :-)More

Wow what a treat this was. During my 3 week stay in Sri Lanka, I believe Milk and Honey served the best vegan options and even had vegan sweets and desserts! The banana bread is A M A Z I N G, and the dark...choc chip cookies were so yummy. The falafel wrap was perfect. The juices are refreshing in the hot weather. Perfect place to chill and have a meal after yoga at Prana Lounge, which is walking distance away.More
