Cup Café

6 C. W. W. Kannangara Mawatha (Baptist Chapel Road), Colombo 7, opposite ODEL


Cup Cafe is a simple and charming coffee shop with good food, drink and a pretty chill atmosphere.



Cup Cafe is a simple and charming coffee shop across from ODEL in Colombo 7. It's a bit of a hidden gem - the food and drink are good, the service is great and it's central, but it's not as buzzing as other coffee shops. It is popular with tourists, and we like it.

The Food And Drink

We tried a few basic things here, an iced coffee (Rs. 380) and a beef teriyaki burger (Rs. 450). 

The iced coffee was generous, sweet and icey. Don't know how much more to say about iced coffee. We've enjoyed the coffee here before and it's all relatively affordable (Rs. 300-450).

Food-wise, the beef teriyaki burger was juicy, flavorful and quite tasty. They also do sandwiches, all of which are pretty appetizing. As a coffee-shop Cup Cafe does simple fare which has never disappointed us. They also do nice desserts, like the lime tart.

Location

Cup Cafe is kinda hidden in plain sight, across from ODEL and near Town Hall. There's some parking in front and you can also park in the church parking lot around the corner and enter through the back.

This place is quite central for people on foot, perhaps why they seem to get a lot of tourists, but it doesn't have an obviously big parking lot (which locals like). If you know, however, there is parking and it's a nice location. Now you can walk to nearby Vihara Maha Devi Park, ODEL, a Paradise Road, and it's near bus transport.

Ambience/Service

The ambience here is pretty basic and hasn't changed much since we first visited. It's not a huge space, but there are booths which are relatively private, and it's rarely packed. The furniture is simple and comfortable, though starting to look a bit dated.

The staff here is very nice, well-trained and there's actually quite a few of them for such a small space. No complaints at all.

Conclusion

If you're looking for a no-frills coffee-shop, Cup Cafe is a good spot. It's centrally located near ODEL and they do good food, coffee and have a very nice staff. 


TIP

Try the frozen lime tart.

Went there on Thursday (poya) with a bunch of friends. One of the cleanest, friendliest restaurants I've been to in Colombo.

They serve a bunch of really nice food, but my favourite at the moment is their Strawberry Yoghurt Tart. :D Love it.
