Kopi Kade's range of sandwiches is their take on Jaffle juxtaposed with Croque monsieur, but they also have a Lankan touch to it. Stuffed with beloved Sri Lankan curries, Chillie Béchamel and imported cheese, these toasties might look ordinary at a glance, but will awash your taste buds with flavour. We highly recommend the Mutton Toastie, which has some spicy-packed, robust chunks of mutton in the filling, along with 24-month old Grana Padano.

The Monkeybean is where the Sri-Panini was born. Panini with a local twist is their forte, and we've always liked their Chicken Meatball Panini, which has a rich stuffing made with well-curried up meatballs.
