Normally we are visiting this place to get lunch (take a way). Considering other places which stands in same level, this is the best place we can get good / tasty vegetarian lunch packs.

You will find this opposite the Kandy city centre shopping mall and several sub outlets throughout the city. They offer a wide range of local sweets and cakes. My favourite is the fruit cake which is rich in fruits and has a nice subtle sweetness. If you are in Kandy, just walk in for a sweet treat!

Bought some cakes and pastries. It tasted really good. It has a other bakery items and local delicacies as well. It was crowded while we visited as it was Sri Lankan New year.

Visited early morning to figure out we've been served expired smelly fish rolls, with everything we had been as dry as you can imagine... Even the cakes were as dry as wafers .. Can't even swallow properly.. Recommend to stay out of this place... Delight, not so..

The Delight Bakers is right in the heart of Kandy town and is well worth calling in for a drink and snack. It serves an exciting range of local sweets, pastries and cakes so is ideal for trying the tempting array of local specialities on offer. It gets extremely busy with local people and tourists but tables empty quite fast... More

You can get very tasty take away pastries from here, or sit down and have a delicious and good value meal. It's a bit gloomy inside. The balcony is pleasant but you have to put up with the smokers.

Some very tasty Sri Lankan naughty treaties to put your face down. My favourite was "walithalapa" (I think is called) and a semolina based one.
