Food is excellent

This cafe is run by an organisation who helps young and underpriviledged people, mainly women, learn a trade and thus find employment. The staff are cheerful and friendly. The food was excellent. I would definitely go again

Nice atmosphere close to Russian Market. Great place for couples in the evening who don't want to travel down to the promenade. Nice bar upstairs.

Nice place but then so it should be for the prices you pay which are on a par with that which I pay in London. Really $3.50 for a cappuccino and almost $4 for a brownie in Phnom Penh

Love the service, helpful, enthusiastic and relaxed. The food is above average price for what you get but the quality has always been spot on. The Club Sandwich was especially filling. It's right next door to the Russian Market so easy to find. Enjoy

Met a business associate for dinner. It was quiet -'the service was good -"the food was good and came quickly. No one else upstairs where we were so that was good. Good prices - I left full and satisfied.

This cafe provides job retraining for undereducated or exploited young people. I visit Yejj at least a couple of times each time I'm in Phnom Penh. Head upstairs to the second floor for good air conditioning, or up to the third floor in the evening for a great barbeque! The menu is constantly being tweaked and great dishes added. Check... More

I love to visit here because of the interior of this cafe is very cute and they have a quite nice sofa at second floor. Ginger juice makes me refresh and relax. When I am hungry, usually order chili con carne or egg benedict both of them are my favorite. If you go Cafe yejj, let's try this.

We had a mid-day lunch right after visiting hit and crowded Russian market. Refreshing fruit cocktails, both our choices of falafel and eggplant dishes (vegeterian), were well presented and tasty. Service was great. The restaurant focuses on supporting women who have Been abused and providing them both employment opportunities and marketable skills.

It is a small place but has many advantages: excelent food, nice service, good wifi connection, clean toiletes, air con, and it is on the corner with the Russian Market. So after shopping you can find the confort of the cafe and enjoy it!

We chose to eat here after checking the reviews on trip advisor and found it a relaxing oasis after a mad few hours shopping at the Russian Market. This café deserves to be supported by visitors as it is helping Cambodian girls build a better life for themselves. The food was delicious although a little more expensive than other local... More
