This is one of the places in Colombo which is under the list “must-try” for all the Architects as this used to be the office of Geofrey Bawa and now maintained by The Gallery Cafe. I have been here twice and both my visits have been amazing. The entrance to The Gallery cafe is a narrow dark passage with office spaces on either sides. It opens into a transition space with a water body and seating area. This finally opens out into the Cafe followed by a restaurant. There is an art gallery on the first floor which is open to all.

The first bit of space is only for the Cafe and beyond the Courtyard is the restaurant area. The food here is really unique and very professionally served and presented. Their signature desserts are the Chocolate Nemesis and Double chocolate cheesecake.
