We started Nomad driven by our passion for healthy food and to provide alternatives to Nomads that, like ourselves, travel or live with a conscious effort of getting good food - for their tastebuds, the body and the environment.
We came to Sri Lanka on holidays and fell in love with the land and its people and decided to start off in the coastal town of Weligama.
Our name comes from the nomads, people that have no fix residence and move from place to place. We are nomads ourselves and, during our roaming, we have gathered a mix of cultural and culinary influences that we put into the café.
We developed the menu with flavour in mind, getting to it with wholesome ingredients, and mixing different cuisines. From the South American influences that you will find in the tacos, to Middle Eastern flavours in the Shakshuka and the dips of our Mezze Platter.
A lot of our dishes are vegetarian and vegan but you will also find fish in our menu. As with everything, the fish is locally sourced, doesn’t come from fish farms or big fishing companies.
We love our mother earth and are very commited with the environment, so we try to be as eco-friendly as possible and adopt the best possible practices for the planet and, concretamente, this beautiful coastal town in South Sri Lanka. We use very little plastic, especially single-use plastic. Our straws are metal and our take away packaging is completely organic and compostable.
From our customers
"Two weeks in Sri Lanka, lots and lots of eating, and this is for sure my favourite spot. The atmosphere was so laid back and pleasant, the food was incredible, and the service was really friendly. My husband had the jackfruit tacos and we ended up ordered a second portion they were so good. Iced coffee was really tasty, and the pesto zoodles were perfect for a hot day.
Went here on our last day in Weligama, and am just disappointed we hadn't gone sooner as we would have come back again and again. If in Weligama/Mirissa you have to go here!!"
