Plus Nine Four

Step into a tree canopied café in central Colombo, named after the country code of our little island of Sri Lanka, ‘Plus Nine Four’. A quirky and fresh idea, as innovative and close to home as the fare served within its welcoming space, at De Fonseka Road, Colombo 5. The latest addition to the sister cafés of ‘Café Kumbuk’ and ‘Kumbuk Kitchen’, giving patrons a tropical island venue to sit down, relax and grab some soul coffee and fusion cuisine.

The Menu

‘Plus Nine Four’ provides a culinary adventure, comprising of simple yet sophisticated dishes, with a dash of Sri Lankan flavours, wherever possible. The Savoury and Sweet line-up presents Fried Calamari with lime aioli and Hot Butter Mushrooms with sweet chili sauce. Topped Toasts are served all day. Sourdough combinations of sundried tomatoes, roast garlic, hummus or the island inspired, tempered pol sambol, bacon herbed hollandaise and poached egg is a testament to taste.

Croffles are a culinary treat. An innovative endeavour where the Croissant meets the Waffle in tasteful success. Savoury or Sweet? The choice is yours. Opt for a Savoury Croffle topped with a scrambled or fried egg, sautéed mushrooms and bacon or a Sweet Croffle heaped with Nutella, strawberries and nuts, with a dollop of artisan vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

Mains are served from 12:00pm onwards. Try the intriguing Ash Plantain and Eggplant Burger, Chili Prawn Linguine or the Beef Burger with mushroom sauce and cheesy potatoes. There’s choices here for both meat, sea foodies, veggie lovers and the vegans. The Sweet Mains; Brioche French toast with caramelised bananas, kithul treacle and kiri toffee artisan ice cream is an explosion of Western and Asian tastes. Top it off with a Dessert of Coffee Caramel Ice Cream Tart, Banana Cheesecake or a Bliss Ball.

Drinks; a selection of coffees from the Espresso to the Latte, flavoured Iced Teas, Cold Brew Teas such as the chamomile tea with frozen pineapple, honey and basil, specialty Sri Lankan teas, Juices and Crushes, as well as Shakes and Smoothies, such as the Chocosmooth a blend of avocado, banana, peanut butter, cocoa and coconut milk, chill and sooth.

The Experience

A lush canopy of trees cocoon the café, which transcends to the interior features of wood, sparkling white walls and artfully placed décor and knick knacks. Minimalistic yet cosy, the surfaces reflect dappled sunshine dances, while the foliage found in nooks and corners and in potted earthenware give an inviting tropical island vibe. ‘Plus Nine Four’, an open plan place to indulge in a memorable casual dining experience or some soul warming coffee.

Note: The kitchen will be open from 9:00am to 4:30pm on Mondays and from 9:00am to 5:30pm, for the rest of the week.
