The Gallery Café

The Gallery Café is situated in the center of the city of Colombo yet it remains a beautiful quiet haven to all our patrons. One enters the building down a paved driveway with temple trees and large urns along each side. A doorman dressed in a black and white striped batik Paradise Road sarong greets you as you wonder past showcases containing art works of the current exhibition.
A view across a long pond filled with striking purple nil manel , Sri Lanka's national flower, continues through the latticed doors towards a giant cement urn, which sits at the boundary wall of the cafe.
The Art Gallery is situated at the entrance to the Café. Exhibitions display works of mostly local artists, changing every three weeks. On the side of this courtyard is The Gallery Shop. Open from 10am to 10:30pm, the shop is ideal for finding a quick last minute gift and is filled with a good selection of Paradise Road merchandise.
