Borderlands Sri Lanka, a camp in Kithulgala that makes it possible for a lot of us to get into adventure sports, has their store Edge Sri Lanka in Kirulapone - where you can go to get geared up for some epic outdoor activity.
The German Toy Museum is Gayangi von Heimendahl's personal collection of toys - dolls, cars, train sets, you name it - from Germany, over the span of 35 years.
Formerly known as Walkers Cafe, The Canteen hasn't changed much at all but their hoppers are excellent.
Independence Square is a beautiful place to hang out and relax. A lot of people surprisingly don't know that under the Memorial Hall are wooden doors that open into a museum.
For candy enthusiasts, Candy Planet in Battaramulla is the holy grail - not only is it affordable but you will find every imaginable type of candy there. It is probably as close as we Sri Lankans will ever get to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.
Triple B's is a cool breakfast place at the Good Market at Racecourse - the pancakes are alright but the real treat is in their syrup and strawberries.
Saraswathie Lodge is another pure-veg South Indian spot on Galle Rd in Bambalapitiya. The ambience isn't as charming as nearby Greenlands Hotel but the thosai is marginally better.
Mini Mago Inc is a store down Ward Place that has the coolest mini-scale houses you have ever seen. Trudi Malalgoda Amadoru, its meticulous designer, not only makes dollhouses and everything in them but offers custom-made miniature worlds to suit your whimsy.
