About Us

High Service for All Customer

Ceylon Girl’s is where you’ll discover exotic flavours expertly crafted with Ceylonese
ingredients. Angela Lord’s mouthwatering curries will have your tastebuds dancing with
every bite.
Ceylon Girl’s has become a dining destination for Sri Lankan expats and all those looking to
dine on authentic, classic dishes such as pan rolls, curry puffs, fish or beef buns, Kottu, String hoppers, Biryani. Lamprais and freshly
made crispy hoppers.
Angela and her partner started a Sri Lankan food truck called La Foodies that was named
one of the top five Melbourne food trucks in 2020. After outgrowing La Foodies, she opened
Ceylon Girl’s Café later that year.
A warm, honest, and simple place with colourful artwork and live music, the café’s all-you-
can-eat buffets are a major drawcard – which isn’t surprising considering everything served
here is made fresh using excellent ingredients.
“Sri Lankan cuisine is a melting pot of different cultures from the Dutch, Portuguese, English,
and the local culture,” Angela said. “I only use the very freshest and best Sri Lankan spices. I
make my own spice blends from scratch.”
Catering for private parties and events with live cooking is a specialty too. Book Ceylon Girl’s Café for your
next celebration, or let Angela and her team bring their delicious cuisine to your venue.

More About Our History

Who we are?

Sri Lanka now, was Ceylon then.

Ceylon was an independent country in the Commonwealth of Nations that shared a monarch with Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Netherlands and other sovereign states.

In 1948, the British Colony of Ceylon was granted independence as Ceylon. In 1972, the country became a republic within the Commonwealth and its name was changed to Sri Lanka, the year I was born.

Burghers are a small Eurasian ethnic group in Ceylon descended from Portuguese, Dutch, British and other Europeans who settled in, developed relationships with natives. Burghers may vary from generation to generation in physical characteristics. Most Burgher people have preserved European customs.

I am a Ceylon Girl and I am a Burgher

Contact with foreign traders brought new food items and cultural influences in addition to the local traditions of the country’s ethnic groups, all of which have helped shape Sri Lankan cuisine.

I have always been a passionate foodie. I started cooking when i was 8. Always eager to learn about. spices and what they did to the dish and /or the human body. Every herb has a medicinal benefit to our digestive system and our health.

I owned my 1st Fast food outlet, LULU’s Takeaway in Dehiwela, Sri Lanka which was affected by the Tsunami in 2004.

My Partner, Craig and I Owned a mobile food trailer which won top 5 Food trucks of Melbourne 2020, With our Food Van, We enjoyed being a part of Caufield and Mornington Races, Music festival, sports events, Wineries, Breweries, Functions, Markets and house parties.

I wanted to spread my wings, cook more and support Local. for that, we needed a bigger kitchen.

Ceylon Girl’s Cafe continues Outdoor catering. We Catered St.Peter’s College Old Boys reunion in St.Kilda for 400 plus patrons, School Cricket matches, Company Lunches, The list goes on.

Customer Reviews

Gregory Elliott Customer

This hidden Gem is something to be experienced. It has a nice atmosphere, wonderful service and the food is so delicious. The coffees are well made and they don't have that bitter taste you get at some places. The place is very clean. From the searing area, you can see right into the Kitchen. From here, you can see that it is immaculately clean, surfaces are all polished. It's are a real treat to see such a well kept place. Oh yeah! Did I say the food was delicious? Yes, that's right I did. And it is. Well worth finding this gem and spending some time here to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and food. I definitely will be back.

KP Customer

I ordered from uber eats and picked it up, I bought the chicken curry with rice. Very nice, a bit spicy but the yoghurt provided helped. I really enjoyed my meal and will definitely be going back. The food is also reasonably priced.
