I had the flu and was looking for soup and this cafe hit the spot. Had aimed seafood soup that was mildly spicy and piping hot. The soup was served with fresh garlic bread. Free wifi was an extra bonus.

The location and size of cafe is good and the fact they offer free wifi but the food is nothing to write home about. We had Fish and Chips and the tuna was nice but service was so slow that one of our party had nearly finished their meal by the time the others had been served.

It is a relaxing palace to sit and the fresh juices are lovely, try the papaya - highly recommended.

This restaurant came recommended by a Galleite and was one that we had passed by several times but didn't venture into. Pretty Bohemic in nature with a mansion renovation in progress behind the cafe. I had an iced tea which was not great; pretty artificial in taste but the fresh fruit juices were much better. I would stay away from pizza here but found that their pastas had better potential and were worth a try. Still very Sri Lankan in nature so if you are looking for genuine continental cuisine this is not your place to go; I found it refreshing however and would definitely revisit.
The free WiFi connection is a definite crowd pleaser and the cafe's location is tucked away in the Fort itself so there's enough quiet to check mail, skype chat or read a book
