Just spotted this place and went in for a break from the bustle. Nice quality light bites and teas, very pleasant setting and very reasonable prices.

The tea was delicious and the price was appropriate. Good wifi. Great location close to the Kandy Lake and not far from the tooth relic temple. The ground level is a tea shop and the upper level is seating to place drink orders. Highly recommend.

Lovely cafe above the tea shop; great value for money, friendly service and tasty food, especially the sri lankan version of french toast.

Why I like this place is for its Rockie constriction, beautiful architecture, the plush tea growing environment and its richness. What I dislike is of course nothing.
