By Hiruni Herath

1. The Beans Coffee Factory

The shop opens at 9 AM, so unfortunately only locals who work in the area will be able to grab some decadent coffee that has been brewed to perfection.

This is a tried and true coffee shop that anyone in Colombo has heard about, if not been to, at least once. Since the shop opens at 8 AM, this one is an easier option to get your coffee fix. You can even grab a good breakfast to go with it.

They also offer an ultimate breakfast that you can indulge in if you have some time before work to take a breather.
