The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf – with Vegan Options

There are three Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf cafes in Colombo and the one we usually go to is based in Colombo 03. They do pleasant coffee compare to the quality of the coffee you get in some coffee shops in Sri Lanka and they also have a good selection of tea.

The cafe offers a variety of food options on the menu but nothing suitable for vegans. The manager, knows very well what vegan means and was happy to prepare some vegan toasted sandwiches with veggies (without butter and cheese) and French fries. He also offered us soya milk with our coffee if we wanted.

At first, I asked if they can prepare vegan fried rice with vegetables but unfortunately, they don’t offer an option like that as their main meals were already premade. So, for that reason, we have been having our vegan sandwiches along with hot drinks.

Nice cafe to chill out or carry out casual business meetings. The staff in the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Cafe are nice and helpful. A few times I ordered tea and I got less than a full cup but they were happy to top up with hot/cold water.

The reason why we keep going here is because of the excellent coffee and it’s great for casual business meetings.
