Simply Strawberries By Jagro

131, Vijaya Kumaratunge Mawatha, Colombo 5


This location is closed, their other locations (Kotte, Cotton Collection) are open. Simply Strawberries by Jagro is a great place for sugary, strawberry-centric desserts that are huge in portion size and high in quality.



Simply Strawberries makes amazing strawberry based desserts and drinks, though their service is struggling to keep up with the influx of people. It's a bit out of the city, along the Polhengoda Road off Baseline near Narahenpita, but it's definitely worthwhile.

Jagro is a successful farmer of strawberries and producer of strawberry and other jams. It's only logical that they'd hire a pastry chef and open a retail outlet, and the results are - taste wise at least - spectacular.

Quality

From the simple strawberry tart (Rs. 150) to the elaborate strawberry sandwiches (Rs. 550) and sundaes (Rs. 350), the delectables are all good. As are the juices. They're using high quality strawberries and the other ingredients are basically sugar and cream, so you can't really go wrong. Seriously, really tasty stuff.

Service

Where SS falls a bit flat is the service. For big orders it can take almost half an hour. This is largely due to the fact that they're very new and in high demand. We pass the road a lot and there's always people there. Now they're doing some physical renovations to accommodate more patrons and we presume they're upgrading the service as well. For right now, however, expect a bit of a wait.

Ambiance

The place itself is quite nice, and nicely done. The Polhengoda Road isn't especially noisy and they have furnished the outdoor eating area sparsely but nicely. It has cut cement tables and chairs, a sink to wash the sticky sweetness off, and that's about it. They're adding an awning for weather-proofing. There's parking for about two cars inside, but the street isn't especially busy.

Conclusion

Simply Strawberries is good. Unless you're allergic to strawberries, go there. It's really really good. The array of jammy, fruity, sugary, creamy desserts is spectacular, as are the juices. You can also get strawberries to take home. The only current downside is that the service can't keep up with demand. We're assuming that their capacity will increase while the quality stays the same. So we recommend.

Simply Strawberries by Jagro is a small cafe/outlet recently opened in Colombo 5. It's essentially like their strawberry farm oulet in Nuwara Eliya brought down for Colombo dwellers, and their luscious strawberries are the main features of all the dishes, ranging from milkshakes to sundaes.
