Rather disappointing, after reading some reviews and the information on their website I thought they may have an idea about coffee. I roast coffee and have a real passion so was hopeful that I would find a decent cup here. Poor tasting espresso and a long wait to be served. Venue is in a bad location and has a less... More

We stopped for iced tea and iced coffee on a hot saturday. It wasn't overly busy but there was a nice relaxed atmosphere. A mix of locals, ex-pats, travellers. The chocolate brownie was outstanding.

Can't comment on the coffee or atmosphere as it wasn't open! The sign on the door said open at 10am but no sign of opening at 11am.

Well 1st of all I'm not sure why we went here in the 1st place. Then remembered that we wanted to try the so called best coffee that some people are hyped up about. Well honestly speaking Yes the coffee seemed good but oh boy they really need to step up their game. The place looks very shabby with curtains... More

Perfect little coffee shop for a fancy cup of local coffee. Loads of options for both cold and hot coffees. Spiced cappuccino is wonderful and so is the ice chilli chocolate and the frappes. It's a small little place and you could hear the coffee being ground which adds to the authenticity. Not many staff but service is great!!!!

Hansa Coffee Cafe is a chilled, laid-back venue where people hang out clicking their laptop keyboards or concluding deals on their mobile phones. It has a very small seating area but provides a good, relaxed ambience. The menu is excellent with plenty of coffee-based beverages offered as well as a small selection of cakes and savouries. The coffee is excellent... More

Best coffee (local) in the city. Chocolate there is also made of locally grown and cultivated cacao. The barista is super knowledgeable and friends. The cafe itself super cosy and arty. One of my fave addresses in Colombo.

A local coffee shoppe offering local produce is rather rare here. So Hansa and Island are the only ones I believe. Though Harischandra is a better known household name, I don't think that they run a shoppe. So Hansa came in as a surprise. And a good one. Their repertoire runs long with black, milk, condensed milk, coconut milk, espresso,... More
