Description: Welcome to Pedlars Inn. Established in 2004 as the first coffee shop inside the UNESCO Heritage Site, Galle Fort, Southern Sri Lanka. From humble beginnings, starting with only 4 tables and one member of staff, the café has developed into a must for all visitors. It now occupies the entire ground floor of the former British post office. Maintaining original features mixed with contemporary design to deliver a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Situated on the historic Pedlars Street at the heart of the Fort, Pedlars Inn provides the perfect respite to a busy day’s exploration of the Ramparts or indulging in the numerous shops and boutiques.

We had lunch here once, it was OK, nothing bad and nothing special. It's one of the places you get tempted to try, because you look for an alternative to the Sri Lankan kitchen and then you get annoyed because it wasn't really good but pricey.

We came here for lunch and returned the next day for breakfast. The food is great and the coffee excellent especially compared to other places we've been. Very friendly staff.

The building was furnished beautifully with lots of cosy nooks to sit in and the ambiance was perfect for an evening in the fort however the menu was quite limited and after deciding on ordering pasta (bolognese and creamy mushroom) both me and my boyfriend had the opinion that it was quite bland and not as good as other pasta dishes we'd had in Sri Lanka.
If you want somewhere to spend a relaxing evening in the fort this is the perfect setting however I personally would advise you eat elsewhere

Interesting and unusual interior design. Done with love and creativity. Good food and choice of food also. Even people who are working there not always professional and client oriented - but interior is helping to forget that. :)
