The Cauldron – Vegan Food Options Stratford Street Colombo

We have been to The Cauldron cafe so many times that the staff recognises us and know exactly what we want and how to be prepared for us as vegans.

The cafe doesn’t have vegan options on the menu. But we had a couple of selections that can be prepared as a vegan. One is the seeni sambol (toasted sandwich with caramelised onions) which we normally have for breakfast. The seeni sambol never fails. It comes out hot and crispy and simply delicious.  The other dish is meat-less-meat (soya) fried vegetable rice served with gravy which is not exceptional but quite good and fulfilling to have it as a dish for your main.

They serve Lavazza coffee using a consumer-level coffee machine which is better than most coffee you can get in Colombo but may not suitable for coffee buffs.

As they have some vegan options which are not advertised as vegan, be sure to say you’re vegan if the owner is available, if not, specify that you don’t eat eggs and not to use butter anywhere.

The staff is very good and always happy to see us. The cafe is spacious with good and subtle music. Perfect place for business meetings, teleconferences or just chill out. If you need to make a short conference call they are happy to reduce the music to a minimum (if it’s loud), just ask.

Love the place and will certainly recommend it if you’re happens to be at Stratford avenue.
