Amazing place with high quality products and service. You will love their meal options which is a blissful break from traditional Sri lankan curries. Good coffee and awesome shakes and desserts. Heaven for wegetarians!

Amazing little out-of-the-way place that has a range of very well priced healthy foods and the most amazing iced coffee we've ever tasted made with coconut milk and cinnamon. Can highly recommend a visit here for breakfast or lunch if you're in Kandy.

Lots of Smoothie Bowls, good actual coffee (none of that instant crap), a nice variety of toasts and friendly service. 5/5

The cafe is so beautiful and away from the busy streets of Kandy. They serve several kinds of juices and coffees. Breakfast is served all day long. We ordered the avocado toast with egg and salad. It was very delicious and the prices are good.

Nice concept, terribly executed. We were warned that there'd be a waiting time for our order when we arrived (which was fine - happy to be forewarned about such things). But the order when it arrived was wrong and missing half of what we asked...More

Nice location. Unfortunately the coffee machine was broken when we visited, so I cannot comment on the coffee quality but the tea selection and the smoothies are very good. Breakfast is good and the staff very friendly and helpful. Vegan friendly!!
