The Commons Coffee House is located in a leafy, residential part of Colombo 7 on the delightfully named Flower Road and has long been one of Colombo’s favourite places for a lovely meal, where you can while away the hours with friends or work in a friendly and welcoming home-away-from-home ambience.
Started over a dozen years ago, The Commons quickly gained a reputation as an unpretentious and welcoming café – a place where you could not only get delicious food but relax too. Simply but tastefully decorated with soft sofas, soft lights, bean bags and cosy corners, The Commons invites you to come and, if you have the time, to stay awhile. 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.
You will find yourself equally spoilt for choice when it comes to drinks – milk shakes, fresh fruit juices, frappes and frappucinos, teas and, of course, a range of delectable coffee served in any number of ways. We aren’t even going to try to describe our delicious desserts – all of which are meant to tempt the untemptable into mouth-watering indulgence.
Apart from our usual fare, we always have yummy special promotions on the go. Check out our promotions to find out what’s hot and happening at the Commons this month.
Whether you want a quick meal during a busy day, or if you want a place to meet someone for business or pleasure, or unwind after school or work, come and experience the lovely charm of The Commons. Our staff waits to welcome you with their smiles and unobtrusive service. Bring a book or bring a friend or bring your laptop (we offer free wifi) or just bring yourself – we’ll give you a reason to smile.
Our Rotti Karaththaya (or Rotti Cart) is a favourite for out-door catering at functions and private parties. Tell us and we will be happy to roll up and dish out our yummy rottis.
The Commons is opened for breakfast at 7:30am and remains open throughout the day until we close at midnight each day. We are very vegetarian-friendly and our food is halal.
