Rustic, charming cafe

Malayan Cafe is a must-visit for food lovers. For 70+ years, anyone seeking authentic Jaffna cuisine has flocked to this place. Its age-old interiors, wooden furniture, and cabinets with old 'stuff' add to its rustic charm. The food is served on banana leaves, everything is affordable, and many locals frequent this place. Remember to look up when going inside: the entrance will 'jump' at you!
