We dropped by Cafe La Defense newest branch at Kothalawela avenue Colombo 04 for a quick snack before an event.
At first as we entered the cafe, the name La Defense itself gave us the French vibe with the aroma of freshly brewing good coffee and food cooking up in their kitchen filling up the entire restaurant space.
Everything was pretty calm with air conditioned space accompanied with comfortable couches to wooden chairs for business meetings to dates to private parties and an outdoor garden space, will call it a smoking area as if you are one, as its fine with the management.
Here is what we tried,
This colourful, blue fancy drink with sliced orange quarters dipped in left us refreshed and instantly soothed.
I loved how well they have balanced the sweetness in it, it wasn’t too sweet nor less. The taste was all about being the just right amounts of sweetness and sourness with a little bit of sprite in it.
Will be one of my favorite picks from them here after to beat the Colombo’s scorching heat.
Sweet ripen juicy Karthakolomban mangoes blended into an ultra thick creamy and luscious goodness.
I was quite pleased about the overall taste of this fresh mangoey goodness,it was super filling with the tropical taste of everyone’s favorite fruit well balanced with the milkyness.
Prawn Pasta (Best moving)
Absolutely delish creamy chilli pasta with an ample amount of baby prawns tossed to it.
The prawn and butter flavour was infused thoroughly with a tiny tingle of spiciness of chilli throughout the entire pasta portion,garnished with finely chopped parsley to that intense flavour and aroma.
It will always be an absolute crowd pleaser as said and a spot on reason for us to go back.
Chicken Club Sandwich (Best moving)
Served with salted crispy hot hot French fries and ketchup.
Toasted buttered sandwich bread stacked with fresh veges, cheese and chicken bacon slices.
Perfect for lunchtime and can be easily shared between two.
Cafe La Defense got some friendly staff with a calm environment in the busy town of Colombo with no disturbances where you can also have a study session because it’s convenient location.
They also got free wifi and charging points.
