7 Cozy Cafés around Colombo (October 2022).

By Rahma Rifkhan

Every now and then, we all just need to press pause on life.

Ignore all the emails, mute all the groups and just sit down for a laugh with some old friends over a cup of coffee.

Anytime you decide to do it, we got you covered. 

Here’s a list of 7 spots where you and your friends can go to and collectively ignore life for a couple of hours. 

1. Bakes By Bella

Bakes by Bella is a treat for the senses: artistic murals on the walls, the smell of brewing coffee in the air, vibey music playing in the background and of course, Bella’s mouth-watering dishes.

It’s a cute little spot to get lost in conversations with family or to reminisce with old friends.
