The Commons

The Commons Coffee House is located on Flower Road in the leafy, residential Colombo 7. It has long been one of Colombo’s favourite places for a lovely meal, in a friendly home-away-from-home ambience. Started over a dozen years ago, The Commons quickly gained a reputation as an unpretentious, welcoming café – a place where you could relax in the soft sofas, bean bags and cosy corners. You can choose from a number of quite different rooms or, if you prefer your meals al fresco, the garden courtyard. The menu is highly varied, ranging as it does from wraps to pastas, from rottis to melts,

from burgers and sandwiches to waffles, from soups to salads - you can just about have it all. Enjoy fresh sandwich bar from Monday – Friday 11am to 3pm for selection of sandwiches. The beverage selection offers milk shakes, fresh fruit juices, frappes and frappucinos, teas and, of course, a range of delectable choice of coffee. Our delicious desserts - all of which are meant to tempt the untemptable into mouth-watering indulgence. Come and experience the charm of The Commons. Bring a book, a friend, your laptop (we offer free wifi) or just yourself - we’ll give you a reason to smile.

Our Rotti Karaththaya (Rotti Cart) is a favourite for out-door catering at functions and private parties. The Commons is opened for breakfast at 8:30am and remains open throughout the day until we close at midnight each day and we are very vegetarian-friendly.
