Mama’s Galle Fort Roof Café

These days it is more international food with a few Sri Lankan dishes. Expect to pay at least Rs700 per main.

Nescafe Shop

I initially thought this place doesn’t exist. It does but it is not as the Lonely Planet describes it. It is little roadside stall not a café. It does not open early but seems to only open in the afternoon. It does however do rotti for Rs50 and also has cups of ‘ginger juice’ for Rs15 (this tastes very much like Chinese ginger tea – ginger boiled with brown sugar).

Hula Hula Café

This is probably one of the cheapest and most authentic local places to eat in the Fort area. A seafood kotthu, ginger beer and chocolate cake (not bad) only came to Rs500. They also do a good selection of reasonably priced grills.

29b Rampart Street near the intersection with Pedlar Street.
