We were passing by and decided to pop into the cafe for breakfast. The VOC Cafe at the Dutch Burgher Union is a small eatery cafe, very subtle with a pleasant atmosphere that takes you back through Ceylon’s history.
They are known for their lamprais and they don’t offer any vegan options on the menu but they were happy to make a toasted bread served with pol sambol. The toasted bread arrived cold but the pol sambol was perfect, freshly made with full of flavour. Tea and coffee were good but nothing to shout out.
The staff were nice but the service a little bit of lacking efficiency. I would be happy to wait longer if they have served hot toasted bread. Great seating area inside and outside.
Great place for a quick bite but nothing fancy for vegans.
