Aviraté Café

30 Maitland Crescent, Colombo 7

Tiny little cafe with excellent froyo and plenty sandwiches, juices, smoothies, coffee and tea. Roast paan is on point.

Avirate is a high-end clothing store on Maitland Crescent which now has it’s own café, just next to the shop. It’s a tiny little place, but very nice and the staff are lovely. They serve food (sandwiches, short eats, etc) and coffee - and now frozen yoghurt.

You don't often come across froyo in Colombo, which is surprising because it's quite a popular dessert. There was a time when the Keells at Crescat used to sell a delicious (imported, I think) tub of the icy confection...

Anyway, the froyo at Avirate is tasty, and there’s a selection of toppings to go with it – sprinkles chocolate chips, etc. Wish they had some fresh fruit or a nice berry compote - but it’s still good.

There’s a few flavours to choose from including chocolate, strawberry, and mango - but only two are available per day.

We recommend going for the cone, which is an affordable Rs. 120. A small cup costs Rs. 280, and the price just goes up from there – how much do you really want to spend on frozen yoghurt?

So go for the cone - it’s really quite good and is the tasty way to cool down after an morning spent in a tuk tuk with traffic.


Good for recluse. Get the fro-yo.
