Mid afternoon and temperatures are at there highest, so what better thing to do than stop for refreshing, cooling homemade ice cream. The flavour options are extensive and our choices were packed with natural ingredients. The very friendly owner and producer of the ice cream came out for a chat as I also make ice cream, it was good to talk about our favourite flavours and sourcing fresh ingredients.

Best ice cream ever and it happens to be vegan. This is a homemade natural ice cream made from coconut milk and fruit or spices. It’s creamy and flavoursome. The juices are also good, served with natural papaya straw and if you’re looking for alternative milk for coffee you can have soy or coconut milk cappuccino. The owner is lovely and welcoming with a big smile and a chat.

A cute ice cream cafe that sells a variety of homemade ice creams. There are vegan options as well. The mango ice cream is really creamy but fresh and refreshing at the same time. The coffee is really good too. The owner is really sweet, she shared the story of why she began to make vegan ice cream, it was really out of love and compassion. Worth a visit!

I’m not a fan of ice cream usually but this was unreal. Hilza makes all the ice cream herself and you can taste the love she has put into it. The vegan soursop was so good and the vegan coconut compliments it perfectly. I left here feeling uplifted not just because of the ice cream but because of what a beautiful soul Hilza is. She and her ice cream are special and will have a place in my heart forever ❤️

I spent an afternoon walking around in Galle and had ice cream at this place. The owner recommended their homemade coconut ice cream, vegan friendly, and it was truly amazing. On top of that an interesting chat about the development of Galle, most welcome by a solo traveller. Recommend a visit!

Most ice cream places that say they do vegan ice cream just have sorbet but this is home made vegan ice cream (made with coconut milk but really rich and creamy) in loads of different flavours, and they do vegan shakes too. The owner also makes the ice cream and she was so lovely and welcoming and pleased I enjoyed it. I had coconut and cinnamon ice creams and would recommend both.

Cafe 82 was recommended to us by a couple we met travelling, so when we arrived in Galle, this was our first stop. We had coffees and two scoops of vegan ice cream each (coconut & chocolate and cinnamon & coconut). So delicious, some of the nicest, creamiest vegan ice cream we have ever had! The owner is a beautiful women who treats you like family, I have never felt so genuinely welcome. If you are visiting Galle Fort don't miss this place, she also sells ice cold bottles of water.

The family who runs this place is so genuine and welcoming. The mother makes all of the ice cream homemade with her daughter every day. No artificial anything, and amazing vegan options as well! The son greets you with a smile and the location is just amazing. For sure stop by for a visit!

We were welcomed in by the lovely owner/proprietor and she made us feel right at home. We had the mango ice-cream, which was only naturally sweetened by mango. It was creamy and delicious, refreshingly lacking that cloying sweetness. Cafe 82 serves top notch ice-cream, with delicious-sounding vegan options!

The couple who are running the Cafe are extremely polite and kind people and very trying to fulfill your every need. They make the ice-cream fresh every night and for those of you who search for vegan options it's definitely a place to visit. Aswell with no artifical ingredients. The flavours are well balanced in taste and you will be served in a short while. Would come to that place any time again. If you have time try to get one of the tables outside on the street side and enjoy the divine flavors and atmosphere.

Was lucky to stumble upon this place. Probably the best vegan ice cream I’ve ever had. The coconut vegan ice cream is out of this world. All their ice cream is home made and you can really taste the care with which it is made. Also, the family that makes them is really warm and friendly. An absolute must to do in Galle!

We found Cafe 82 by accident, but this was a very happy accident. The vegan ice cream was the best that we had ever tasted. We asked the owner about the ingredients and were very reassured that everything was both vegan and that natural flavours were used. Both the chocolate and cinnamon handmade / homemade ice creams were delicious with a good texture. We did not try the dairy ice cream but it should be just as good.

The best coconut ice cream we have ever had - fresh, tasty and you'd never know it's dairy free. Very lovely owner who makes everything fresh home made in small batches. Wish we could go back for more.
