Food & Drinks
Unlike the other Java Lounge branches, they don't seem to prepare the dishes freshly here. We spotted a glass showcase full of sandwiches, wraps, pastries and other savoury goodies, along with the cakes and sweets.
Featured above is the Ham & Cheese Croissant (Rs. 480). The croissant itself was perfectly puffed up, flaked off very nicely, but felt a tad dry, as opposed to being buttery.
Nonetheless, it's not a shabby deal for the said price.
Half a baguette, generously stuffed with robust chunks of chicken and kochchi, this Kochchi Chicken Sandwich with Cheese (Rs. 650) is a good one if you prefer something on the savoury side. It oozes out with a peppery hit too, which doubles its spicy kick. The bread could improve, as it tended to crumble a bit.
The Blueberry Cheesecake (Rs. 490) was a pleasant surprise. Creamy and sweet, but with a teeny tiny hint of cream cheese, it tasted quite fresh and delicious. Comes in really handy to balance out the heat of that Kochchi Chicken Sandwich.

We got two drinks – a Hot Chocolate (Rs. 580) and a Java Chip Coffee Frap (Rs. 750)
- The Hot Chocolate was good. The milk could have been creamier, and a little more chocolate in the mix would do no harm.
- The Java Chip Coffee Frap is my go-to drink at Java Lounge. It's refreshing, has a creamy yet light texture enriched with plenty of chocolate chips, and the coffee kick is spot on.
Ambience & Service
Wedged between the Wickramarachchi Opticians and Janet Salon, this tiny Java Lounge can fit about ten customers at a time. Their Wi-Fi isn't bad, and you can plug in and get the work done without any issue.
The service was great as always. Welcoming, friendly and absolutely helpful.
We liked this Java Lounge experience a little better than our previous ones. The food is one level up than the usual, and as always, we dig the work-friendly, chilled out vibe.
