I had a grilled vegetable and paneer sandwich, nothing special. Plus a jing coconut! Nice waiters. Gorgeous place. Shane they have too many international dishes (not really my thing).

After reading great reviews we were a bit underwhelmed by the food. Friendly staff and generous portions of grilled fish but served Luke warm and a bit bland.

We ordered vegetarian pizza which was average. We also had hummus with pita and the quality / taste was not very original. Average place to eat in my opinion.

Set on the corner this is easy to find. The cafe is large but fills up during lunch time. However the service was quick and friendly and the food arrived promptly. Good atmosphere, very clean and good value food.

Good coffee at this cafe. The colonial interior is a draw card. It's airy, spacious and stylishly decorated. The service was fast and efficient and the coffee was good. Nice place to cool down and relax in the heat of the day in Galle.
