Sat down here but menu not to our liking so left--wanted more diverse menu and alcohol. In all fairness, it seemed busy and apparently good for a lot of people. Prices were reasonable.

The brownies here are excellent! I have always stopped at Pedlar's (as mentioned in my previous review), and I always buy brownies. Couple of months ago I did the same. But this time I added ice cream to my order. I did not like what came out. My friend liked it so it might just be my (non)preference. I did... More

Went to taste the SriLankan breakfast, but were disappointed that it was not available. Ordered sandwich which was good. Coffee was good.

Ordered fresh fruit with muesli, curd & honey. It was a huge great bowl, really tasty and made a welcome change to usual bread & eggs served in Sri Lankan guest houses. Very good coffee too. Highly recommend for breakfast. Walked by in the evening and it was bustling, very inviting but we'd already eaten elsewhere.

When in Galle make sure to have a coffee at Pedlar's Café. For the Dutch people who are familiair with the town Naarden Vesting: it's like being in the Markstraat. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. And most importantly good coffee!

Our party of 4 persons ordered lunch at Pedlar's Cafe after having walked around the trendy Pedlar's Street in Galle Fort. The furniture, decor and ambience is truly worthy of mention and fits into the overall sum of things (architectural and land use) in the area. I ordered seafood knowing that it should be fresh and I was not disappointed... More

Went there in evening, lovely nice cafe with a seatings closer to road and on the road. Foods are very tasty and the portions are big. Service is bit slow but nothing to complain as you can have nice little chat at the cozy Enviroment.
