A chilled out place in the heart of Colombo for a nibble and drink after work with friends, which doesn't require you to dress up or shell out serious dough.
Great Wall has been around for a while now, but they're mostly known for their take out. We dropped by for lunch to see how they match up against the growing number of Chinese restaurants in Colombo.

A worthy and chocolate heavy addition to our reviews of Colombo home bakers. Very tasty and indulgent sweets, mainly brownies.
The Brick Lane Cookie Company serves fresh cookies between the escalators of the Crescat Mall. It's a quick and tasty bite you can grab on your way up or down.
As a food, McDonald's is pretty processed and nothing special, but as an experience it still has a real place in the global psyche. Sometimes you just want McDonald's. In that case the Colpetty outlet…
