Java Lounge (Cotton Collection)

145 Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 7


Java Lounge is a nice little coffee shop attached to Cotton Collection on Dharmapala Mawatha. It's not cheap (no coffee shop is) but it's roomy, has parking and they take care with their drinks.

The original Java Lounge on Jawatte Road is a little coffee shop run by the owner of Kapruka. Their main thing was serving Starbucks coffee (I think they just bought the take-home packs from America and transported them here). They've now opened a branch on Dharmapala Mawatha, across from the Vihara Maha Devi Park and attached to a huge Cotton Collection store.

The shop looks small from the outside but it's actually quite roomy, and there's generally enough parking. There's indoor and outdoor seating areas and WiFi, so it's a comfortable place to chill. We tried an iced coffee frap (Rs. 380), a cappuccino (Rs. 370) and a cafe latte (Rs. 340). Each of them the price of two buth packets, but it was pretty good coffee.

They have bites and stuff also - pastas, lasagnas, salads - all ranging from Rs. 350 to 550.

Overall, this Java Lounge is a good straight-up coffee shop. Nothing especially fancy here, but there doesn't need to be. It's a good location with parking and good coffee and WiFi. Works for us.

TIP

Don't be afraid of the small street-front. There's parking and it's bigger than it looks.

Was here on holiday and popped in for a drink and asked if they could do a lemon ice tea (which wasn't on the menu); the barista was happy to oblige and it was one of the best I've had.
