Colombo is Sri Lanka's commercial capital. Being a tropical mercantile hub, it is hot, humid and chaotic, so travelers often use Colombo as a pit spot. However, Colombo is also home to a young but thriving cafe scene. From retro-themed cafes to spots with outdoor gardens serving Sri Lankan meals with a twist, and cheery, spacious tea lounges to while away your time with a good book, these are the best cafes to check out in Colombo. Bonus: these are also great places for digital nomads as you can rely on their WiFi to get some work done.
