Cafe La Defense – A Taste of Elegance.

Café La Defense, located at 124, park road, Colombo, Sri Lanka is a delightful spot for both locals and tourists, offering an inviting escape from the bustling streets. During a recent visit, we came across a culinary experience that not only wowed our taste buds but also left an impression with its ambience and service.

Ambience & Service

The moment we stepped inside Café La Defense, we were greeted by a warm and cozy atmosphere. The interior design of the café blended contemporary design with delicate French influences to create an elegant and inviting space. The soft lighting, plush seating, and tasteful artwork all added to the overall ambience, making it an ideal spot for a leisurely meal or a casual conversation. Beyond the scrumptious food, Café La Defense’s attentive and friendly staff elevated our dine in experience to new heights. The servers were well-versed in the menu and made thoughtful recommendations based on personal preferences. 

The menu at Café La Defense boasts an impressive selection of delectable dishes, ranging from gourmet sandwiches and salads to rich pastas and mouthwatering desserts. Each dish is thoughtfully prepared using locally sourced ingredients and is a testament to the chef’s culinary expertise. We had the pleasure of sampling two of their signature dishes, The Breakfast Nest and La Defense’s special hot butter prawn burger, both dishes were absolutely delicious. 

  • La Defense Special Hot Butter Prawn Burger 

First and foremost, the prawns were the star of the show. Fresh, succulent, and generously sized, they were encased in a light and crispy batter that had just the right amount of crunch. The prawns retained their tenderness, offering a delightful contrast to the outer coating. Each bite was a burst of seafood goodness, making it a true seafood lover’s dream. The burger was served on a soft, toasted bun and potato wedges that held up well to the juiciness of the prawns. The accompanying sauces provided a perfect balance of flavors, without overpowering the natural taste of the prawns. Nevertheless, the hot battered prawn burger was a delightful departure from traditional burger options. If you’re a seafood enthusiast looking to embark on a mouthwatering culinary adventure, this prawn burger is an absolute must-try.

  • The Breakfast Nest

A healthy and filling breakfast dish that excels in both taste and presentation is the breakfast nest with a poached egg. Each element, from the perfectly poached egg to the crispy sliced tomatoes and ham, complements the others to produce a satisfying and well-rounded breakfast. With a minor addition of a sauce or dressing, this dish has the potential to reach new heights of flavor. If you’re seeking a nourishing and visually appealing start to your day, the breakfast nest with a poached egg is a delightful choice that won’t disappoint. Upon arrival, the breakfast nest presented itself as a work of art—a beautifully arranged tomatoes and ham, forming a nest-like base for the star of the dish, a poached egg. The breakfast nest was thoughtfully seasoned, with a sprinkling of herbs and a pinch of salt and pepper to enhance the flavors without overpowering the natural taste of the ingredients.

Café La Defense also serves an impressive selection of beverages, including a wide range of coffees, teas, and energizer drinks made with red bull. We had the pleasure to try their Red Bull Energizer Strawberry Mocktail which delivers a refreshing and energizing twist to the traditional energy drink. It provides a delightful drinking experience with its harmonious blend of sweet strawberries and the energizing kick of Red Bull. The Red Bull Energizer Strawberry Mocktail is sure to satisfy your taste buds and invigorate your senses, whether you’re looking for a mid-day boost or a vibrant and fruity mocktail for social occasions. Each of their beverage options was crafted with attention to detail, promising a delightful journey for the taste buds. The red bull energizer mocktails at Café La Defense deserve special mention for their ability to provide a refreshing and sophisticated alternative to traditional cocktails.
