Bubbling over with warmth and comfort- 'The Cauldron' opens its doors in Colombo

16 October 2017 - 112   - 0

Opening their doors on September 11, Colombo’s latest cafe venture “The Cauldron” has claimed a cosy quarter of its own down Stratford Avenue, Colombo 6.

Operating from 7 a.m. to midnight on all week days, The Cauldron is run by husband-wife duo Tharanga Perera and Dushanthi Wimaladasa. A self-proclaimed dreamer, with much experience in the food service industry, Tharanga shares that the owners are dedicating The Cauldron “to those passionate people who believe they can change the world to be a better place.”

Complimenting his words, the café boasts posters of renowned personalities- musician John Lennon, actress Audrey Hepburn and revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara.

With no traces of witches or warlocks at The Cauldron, our curiosity over the café’s name bubbled over to an anticlimax as we discover it was an accidental stumble, Tharanga chuckling that no magic was used to conceptualize it. He sees  The Cauldron as a space for “warmth and comfort” and aspires to attract customers who wish to establish that “genuine connection” with friends and food.
