Budz is the latest coffee house to open up in Colombo and is actually quite nice. The ambience is a lot more casual and less commercialized than Barista or Coffee Bean and the décor is done up pretty well and it comes as a welcome respite if you’re tired of the same old.
The food is average (well, what we had at least. I’m yet to check out the rest of the menu) but it’s still worth checking out for the chilled out ambience, live music and those comfy bean bags.
What with the live performances (Percussion form Thriloka on Saturdays and Jazz on Wednesdays, yo) and colourful walls, its actually one of those places that I secretly dreamed of opening, but maybe with a pretty fountain, art gallery and waiters with silk turbans.
Ps – It’s tucked away on Rosmeade Place (the lane in front of Kess).
Pps – Aren’t the painted coffee tables nice?
