The Commons Coffee House

39A Flower Road, Colombo 7

Commons is one of Colombo's most popular hangout spots. They've got a great location on flower road and a relaxed atmosphere. Its expansive menu means your spoilt for choice but quality varies depending on what you choose.




In terms of standards their food has really gone down. Was there recently after a while and ordered the Chillie Prawn Pasta… what was served was an appalling goopy mix of knorr infused cheese and cornflour sauce with more cornflour than cheese, with a couple of prawns and chillie flakes mixed in with the pasta…that was it. It was so disappointing especially since I've sampled such a dish in other restaurants such as Bars and was looking forward to having something similar. This was like one of those pre-cooked meals you can microwave for a quick fix. If they can't do certain dishes well then they should remove it off the menu and concentrate on what they can pull off. Otherwise it just ends up disappointing and being a total rip off for what we pay as customers.

Past Dinemore on Thurstan Rd, turn left on to Flower Rd at the (Royal College) junction. Commons is on Flower Rd, a few meters passed Ladies College on the opposite side.
