Calorie Counter (Galle Fort)
Calorie Counter is one of our go-to spots for getting a healthy work lunch delivered in Colombo, so we were pleasantly surprised to find their snazzy new spot in the Galle Fort. It's healthy enough for you to feel good, but tasty enough for you to not curl up in a ball reconsidering your existence.
The dish was perfectly executed, with lovely soft smoked salmon perched on local multigrain toasted bread. The eggs came perfectly poached, and topped with a low-fat hollandaise alternative (avocado!). Don't let the healthy tag fool you - it's a pretty hefty portion, more suited to brunch than breakfast.
Pedlar's Inn Cafe
Pedlar's Inn Cafe is a popular stop in Galle fort the food is alright, but mostly it's the ambience that makes this place one of the better hangout spots when you're at the fort.
