Barefoot Garden Café

An urban oasis, a quiet getaway hidden in the middle of the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Colombo. A place where one can spend a day, a meal, a drink under the cover of natural air conditioning, the sounds of the birds and our serenading playlists.

Started in the early 1990’s, serving a simple lime juice and fish patty, the cafe quickly expanded into a restaurant. Nearly 30 years later, Barefoot Garden Café is now a restaurant and event space that serves many different purposes. From music concerts and theatre productions to wedding celebrations and dinner parties, the Barefoot Garden Café is versatile and happy to have you.

We are open from 10am to 7pm on Monday through Saturday, and 10am to 6pm on Sundays and Poya Days.
Call +94 11 255 3075 (extension 210) or WhatsApp +94 77 113 3505 to make a reservation.

Sunday Jazz
