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 by Jagro is one of Colombo's best dessert options if you're looking for sugary, flavoursome — and very affordable desserts. Like the name suggests, every dessert features a generous heaping of fresh strawberries grown on Jagro's highland farms. Besides this main branch, they've also got a little outpost at the Cotton Collection in Colombo 7.

The Desserts

The great thing about Jagro is that everything costs between Rs. 300 - 550 and the portions are very, very generous. The chocolate sandwich for Rs. 600 is one of my all-time favourites a rich bed of high-quality strawberries and cream beneath a big chunk of warm, gooey, near-perfect chocolate cake. I'd be surprised if you could finish this by yourself there's just a truckload of sugar, cream and sauce—but you're probably going to want to since the cake is that good.

The strawberry tarts are delicious too, at just Rs. 200 for two tarts. The crumbly, well-baked tarts are filled with that classic combo of fresh, sweet cream and a heaping of strawberry slices — sugar therapy at its best.

The strawberry waffles are another very popular order among Jagro's customers — for Rs. 450, you get a giant waffle, slathered in a ridiculous amount of juicy strawberries, cream and your pick of either strawberry or chocolate sauce. It's one of the sweeter dishes on the menu and makes for a satisfying breakfast.

We finally asked for the strawberry cheesecake. For Rs. 550, it's one of the tastiest in town if our cheesecake roundup is anything to go by. This huge slice of unbaked cake is soft and creamy, with a sweet and crumbly biscuit base that adds texture to every bite. This is topped with a heap of freshly sliced berries and strawberry sauce to add that signature tangy sweetness.

Ambience & Service

Jagro is a very chilled out place to hang out at, with some concrete blocks for furniture and wooden seating under a canopy. It's a pleasant and cool setting especially later at night. Service has been fast and efficient whenever we've dropped by. You place your order over the counter and go back and pick it up a few minutes later.

Conclusion

It's hard not to love this place — they give you a range of delectable desserts for 500 bucks and less. It's a must-visit, especially if you're a strawberry fiend like me. If you've got a sweet tooth and are looking for a way to indulge, Simply Strawberries by Jagro should definitely be one of your top considerations.

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.
