There’s no greater pleasure for a parent than to watch your little ones grow and you can’t hide the surprise when you realise that yet another year has fled past and your bundle of joy is all grown up. All the nurturing is showing its signs of goodness.
“The same applies to your business! How it begins in a small way and how it grows from strength to strength over the years. That’s the way we feel about Choco Luv café,” said Directress Ishfa Nawaal.
“We can’t believe it’s three years now! It all began as a little cart selling quick milkshakes at the Cartoon Kids boutique and it blossomed into a beautiful café down Gregory’s Road and now it’s ready to branch out! A big thank you to ‘Team Choco Luv’ for all the hard work and for the reason we are what we are today.”
Choco Luv is celebrating its third birthday with its newest outlet, Choco Luv Express, at Nolimit Image Wellawatte, due to its convenient location.

Choco Luv is best known for its exquisite range of milkshakes originally Nutella, Ferrero Rocher, Tic Tac, Kinder Bueno, Oreo and such which were instant hits among choco lovers. Over the years it has been adding constantly to the range and today has 21 different chocolate milkshakes on the menu.
Though it started out with only milkshakes, the café today features chocolate gateauxs with Nutella, Ferrero Rocher, strawberries, after eight, cupcakes with Oreo, red velvet and many other items. The list goes on with the latest addition from Yumi Cake to desserts – Nutella éclairs.

We have always provided the best of what we have to offer and that’s how we have kept the Choco Luv brand name at the top when it comes to family dining and cafe experience.
