This place is cute and prices are reasonable. If you’re in need of a Lassie or a good coffee on your way back from little Adams peak this is the place. Quirky design as well!

We had a short break in Ella, and dropped to this place. Nothing special (of course free WIFI) and a friendly service. Probably the best coffee and great juice/lemonade which we had in Sri Lanka

We had two rotis and they were both delicious. The service was quick and staff friendly. Service charge added to bill which was unusual in Sri Lanka. Definitely recommend for lunch.

Had a few pots of the 'healthy tea' while we read our books. Very peaceful listening to the rain fall and the putter of a tuk tuk every so often. This cafe also has beautiful hand crafted souvenirs.

And here because of reviews on trip advisor. This place didn’t let us down. I had the rotti and my wife had kottu and both were great. We also had juices which were REALLY good. There could have been some music or something to create...More

The Artcafe Umbrella is located on the Pasara Road on the way to Little Adam's Peak - or even better on your way back to get some refreshments. We went there for fresh juices (awesome!) and some pancakes and a fruit salad with curd and...More
