Colombo has very, very few places that are open late night, let alone 24/7 (minus 5 star coffeeshops, but who can actually afford those?). 24 Seven does what it says on the tin, and we love that.
It's basically just a little container off Horton Place (right next to Cafe Kumbuk). There's space for about one car to park, a little seating area outside, and the container itself, with a little ice cream window.
A security guard will assess your level of inebriation/thuggishness and signal to the shop guy to open the door. Once in, you can just pick what you want, pay, and leave. Both the security and the cashier were friendly and helpful, if a little nervous (we did rock up almost at midnight to be fair, and I look pretty dangerous).
Pretty much everything you could need if you've got the midnight munchies.
They'll also be opening a larger cafe and boutique section in the future, around November.
Absolutely! This is an incredibly useful addition to Colombo. They haven't added crazy markups to the goods, which is wonderful. They've also done a pretty good job of anticipating people's late night needs (food, sex, ice cream) and stocking quality products from Sri Lanka and abroad. Overall, we loved the concept and execution and will undoubtedly be back somewhere in the wee hours of the night.
