Yumi Cake

16, Flower Road, Colombo 03


Yumi Cake is a cute little restaurant that serves awesome desserts - chocolate fudge lovers, this is your haven.



Yumi Cake is a superb dessert place on Marine Drive. It's a cute little mini-restaurant with a great menu for sugar lovers - Nutella eclairs, Ferrero Rocher cakes, fudgey brownies, even gluten-free stuff if you care about that.

Those of you who go to Good Market must already know Yumi (seems like the Good Market is a good place for start-ups, like Bread Company, Panino, Achcharu Kade, The Cakery).

The Desserts

The cake 'slices' you get in the Rs. 500 range are massive, and deliciously baked. We got the red velvet cheesecake, and it was amazeballs - creamy and fresh, and way too much for  me to finish by myself.

We were pleasantly surprised by the Ferrero Rocher cake slice too, which was equally huge and richly Ferrero-flavoured with the beloved Italian chocolate atop it. This is a special one for chocolate fans and priced at Rs. 600. 

Ah the classic marshmallow and hot chocolate combination, easy to make and, in our opinion, the best beverage on the menu. This cost Rs. 480, pricier than average cafe drinks, but we didn't mind - nothing like soft marshmallows in hot chocolate on Marine Drive on a rainy day. 

We leave the best for last. The fudgey cheesecake brownie. Basically, these guys took two of the most awesomest things in the dessert world - fudge and cheese - and put them together. It costs Rs. 220 and is pretty filling as a dessert (make sure you ask them to microwave it though) - rich, chocolatey, but not unbearably sweet, and my favourite from what we ordered. 

Service & Ambience



Yumi Cake has got a very cute interior, with a clean pink and white theme. It's a small space enough for about five to sit and eat, while you can also take-away boxes of desserts, or call their hotline to place an order. Since the place is small and new, service was unsurprisingly good with very attentive people behind the counter. 

Conclusion

There aren't a lot of good dessert restaurants in Colombo (so far just Skrumptious, The Cakery, Jagro, A&M), so we couldn't be more excited about another one coming up. The desserts are great quality, they use favourites like Nutella, Ferrero, cheese and marshmallows, and the prices are good considering the big portions. 


TIP

They also have a 'Guilt Free' range of gluten free/ sugar free brownies, and some healthy savouries.
