Kaffeine is a fairly new coffee shop that's recently opened up above the Laveesh clothing store on Maya Avenue. The good bits: there's a large parking space. And if you're from from Nugegoda or Dehiwala, this makes more sense than a traffic laced trip to the city's more central clutch of cafes, Pascucci, Cioconat, Coffee Bean, Cup Cafe, etc. They play very nice music, and the space, while small, has a good elevated view of the road.

The not so good bits: the food isn't that great, and neither is the coffee.

We tried a couple of waffles, the Caribbean chicken and tuna mayo (Rs. 390). The waffles were fine, but the meat was just a bit...icky and oily, and the tuna was overfishy and tasted, honestly, sort of bad. It's a new place, and they're trying. I think the sweet waffles may be better. We don't want to be too negative, but our experience wasn't the best one. The chocolate frappe (Rs. 200) again was oversweet and somewhat artifical tasting.

So... Kaffeine. It's there. It's new, and the space has potential. Things could improve a bit, but that may just happen with a bit of time.


They don't serve food off the main menu at lunchtime - only the stuff off the chalkboard (waffles, salads) is available.

If you head down Havelock Road (heading out of town) you'll get to a Bo Tree junction with a Pizza Hut. Go left along High Level Road. The shop is at the next Bo Tree, across from an IOC petrol shed.
