The Brick Lane Coffeehouse – A Cosy Haven Hidden Inside Excel World

Published Date : 22-Mar-2021

Hints of freshly brewed coffee and the tantalising aroma of baked goodies linger in the air, and young and old alike find delight in the assortment of delicious choices on offer. Decadent chocolate cakes topped with rich ganache and cheesecakes with blueberry toppings tease all the senses. Fluffy sweet-filled doughnuts, flaky croissants with a silken gleam and yummy pies, there is a range of goodies to suit any palette. Conveniently located inside the Excel World Entertainment Park, The Brick Lane Coffeehouse serves an array of delicious cakes, bakes and coffees in a plush and tranquil setting.

The Brick Lane Coffeehouse is an ideal place to while away the hours with coffee and cakes or grab a quick snack on the go. With its service as warm as the bread rolls straight from the oven, The Brick Lane Coffeehouse promises a relaxed and delectable experience for its patrons.

Operated by Excel Restaurants Pvt. Ltd, which manages a portfolio of prestigious restaurants and pubs in Colombo, The Brick Lane Coffeehouse recently opened its doors to a world of sweet delights. The interior of the coffee shop creates a cosy and warm feel, with dark blue hued comfy wooden sofas to sink into while the chic counter top with high stools offers more seating space.  Although the space is compact, COVID-19 health regulations are adhered to where the one-meter distance has been maintained in all seating arrangements.

While there is an extensive beverage menu featuring a host of coffee-based drinks—both hot and cold—the food menu changes daily: from savoury choux buns and sweet muffins to classic sandwiches and fruit tarts. The bread is made by hand with premium ingredients and packaged in biodegrade packaging. Sourdough is the speciality and you can try the takes on classic ryes too.

The Brick Lane Coffeehouse takes pride in serving some of the best cakes in town. Headed by its award-winning Pastry Chef, Janaka Dias, the patisserie delights its diners with specialty cakes from across the world, including delicious black forest cake, imposing red-velvet cake and light and simple Victoria sponge.

Commenting on the opening of the coffee shop, Janaka Dias said, “Each morning our team bakes a selection of cakes, pastries and breads; as well as prepares savoury items such as tarts and quiches. Customers can choose what’s on display every day and order from our carefully curated beverage menu.”

Sharing his thoughts, Eksath Wijerathne, Executive Director, Excel Restaurants said, “We are delighted to open the doors of our newest venture and sure this is going to be loved by coffee aficionados in town. Brick Lane offers the compulsory classics found in every coffee shop as well as a range of innovative beverages and nibbles too. Most importantly, freshness is at the heart of everything we do at The Brick Lane Coffeehouse.”

Open from 7.00am, this is an ideal location to start your day with a wholesome breakfast and cup of coffee. As the day advanced towards evening, the coffee shop fills up with lighthearted people who look forward to enjoying an evening of camaraderie and laughter over a cup of tea. As the coffee shop is tucked inside the Excel World Entertainment Park, it is ideal to grab a quick munch after a game of bowling or a joyful evening at the Adventura Kids’ Park.

While there are tongue-tingling options on offer for a quick pick-up, if you require something special or larger quantities, an order would need to be placed beforehand. The delivery service of the Brick Lane Coffeehouse is available within the city limits of Colombo and the delivery menu will leave you spoilt for choice. Since every item is made to order to retain the freshness of food, a prior notice period is required.
