Here’s a quick list of my go-to desserts in Colombo (not restaurants/cafes – this post is about the individual dessert dish!)
The Cinnamon Roll from Bakes By Bella
It’s so difficult to find proper Cinnamon Rolls in Sri Lanka. It’s still a fairly new concept here, and a lot of restaurants have tried their take on it – however Bakes By Bella get this dessert dish just right! It reminds me of all the Cinnamon Rolls I grew up eating in Germany. They sell out pretty early though, so order them early!
Sits Salted Caramel Cupcake
This one particular cupcake was an accidental find one day while picking up a cake for a friend. Now it’s become a guilty pleasure for Sam and I (a way too often guilty pleasure, before curfew we were going about once a week to sneakily get this cupcake). It’s the perfect mix of caramel, cream and cupcake and is definitely worth a box or 20.
P.S I couldn’t find a proper picture of the Salted Caramel Cupcake on their page, so here’s a few of their other cupcakes.
Key Lime Pie at Cafe Kumbuk
This dessert is one of the absolute BEST in all of Colombo. I have no idea how they do it but Cafe Kumbuk is SPOT on with this dessert. I’ve even convinced the usually picky Sam that it’s amazing. Cafe Kumbuk is one of my favourites anyway, it’s made both my previous posts on Top 5 Affordable Date Spots & Top 5 Brunch Spots in Colombo, so y’all know I’m a fan. Quite often you can find me heading there just for a piece of the Key Lime Pie though 😉
Hyved Crème Brûlée
We found this one when Hyved was still at their old location under a different name, but the quality of this dish has never changed. Hyved does the most amazing creme brulee, with the perfect consistency and perfect torched sugar layer. It’s perfect for a quick dessert to share!
Okay, so if you haven’t had this yet you are MISSING OUT. You may think you’ve tried the best cheesecake in Colombo, but trust me, you haven’t. My family and I are huge fans of cheesecake for every occasion, so we’ve tried a fair amount of those around Colombo. Once again, trust me, nothing beats this melt in your mouth piece of perfection they serve you at Mitsi’s called cheesecake. If I was to tell you which of all these desserts you should try first, it’s this one.
Anyway, that’s it. Just a quick post about my fave desserts in Colombo because this one has won multiple of my instagram story polls. Let me know what you think, or if you have anything you think is better than what’s on this list!
