The Bread Company (German Artisan Bakers)

461, Thimbirigasyaya Road, Colombo 5

The Bread Company is a great place for freshly baked bread, a wide range of fresh meat cuts, and meals like sandwiches and hotdogs.




The signage now says - The Artisan Bread Company - and the name has probably been changed from the above. Found it open after a very long time. I probably visited them on Mondays, Public holidays or after 6 pm when they are closed.

It’s a quaint, relaxed coffee shop. A no frills unhurried place ideal for a catch up with old friends. Its like sitting in your own country kitchen with staff ever ready to bring food and drinks as and when you want.

Its owned and run by a German family and therefore they have Lovely artisan breads and European style fresh sandwiches. Coffee including Cappuccinos and espressos are under Rs 350/- They also serve fresh juices.

When many Colombo restaurants are chickening out of pork, the Bread Company is a Pork lovers Haven. Flock here for quality pork sausages, Real pork bacon and roast pork sandwiches.

Although it is a very small place, many trained chefs work in the kitchen at any time. So service is fast because it is almost overstaffed but that’s to ensure quality and speed.

They open early, at 7 am for breakfast but close by sunset. A hearty breakfast is around Rs. 1,000/- and many breakfast options are available, and whipped up very efficiently. Their mustard sauce is exceptionally good.

Many items are reasonably priced. For instance, Brownie slabs with walnuts are only Rs. 400/- and Bacon and egg Buns are Rs. 200/- and they are big and also the best Bacon and egg Buns in town with real bacon and lots of stuffing. Hefty made to order sandwiches are Rs450/-. However, the cupcakes at Rs 350/- for a small cup cake is far too expensive. Government taxes are included in all the prices but a 10% Service charge is added even on takeaways.

The messy toilet and the lukewarm coffee really need to be improved but the relaxed setting and the food make up for the shortfalls.

Coming down Thimibirigasyaya Road, past St. Theresa's Church (heading east). It’s about 100m past the church, opposite Ma’s Gourmet (it’s a grocery store with bright orange paint).
