Speaking at the opening of the café Managing Director Shiva Balachandran said, “Café Sociale is not just your typical café where you would walk in for a quick bite or a coffee to-go. Instead what we have created is a space for people to come and be innovators. We have tried to make the interiors as high-tech and comfortable as possible to allow people to think creatively. The food and beverages are also created to inspire great minds. Then there’s the pet-friendly factor which
is another first in Sri Lanka and a culture we would like to promote as well.”

The menu at Café Sociale is a creative genius using plays on famous movie titles for everythingyou get on it. The short but interesting menu pays tribute to the likes of “Vanilla Sky”, “Top
(Gun) Bun”, “Beverly Hills (Cop) Cod and Italian Job among many others. Reasonably priced at rates affordable enough for students and start-up businesses, the menu includes many favourites from around the world and have been selected by Consultant Chef Thushara Gunawardhana, who
has over 14 years of experience in the hospitality industry in Australia and Sri Lanka.

The kitchen at Café Sociale is also fitted in with world-class equipment like the Rational Self Cooking Center while the finest ingredients from across the world are used to prepare the unique dishes. Maintaining the best hygiene and food safety standards as per the guidelines set by the
consultant chef, Café Social’s creative and dedicated culinary and management teams have created a space and menu  is  a cut above the rest, a statement from the organisation said.

Café Sociale as its name suggests is a place for people to socialize. In keeping with the theme the café has also introduced innovative concepts such as the “Co-ffice” which is a space for 8 hot desking spaces available to customers on a first-come-first-served basis. At a nominal fee this
“seat” also offers 8 hours of free Wi-Fi and Air-Conditioning.

The café also houses a 12-seater boardroom aptly named “Co-laborate” which can be rented out for an out-of-office brain-storming session or a meeting of any kind. For the more casual gatherings, Café Sociale also has an outside space where pets are welcome. This backyard can
also be rented for private functions. With ample parking for more than 20 vehicles.
