Jars of clay. A must in Phnom Penh

A lovely cafe offering reasonably priced Khmer and western food and supporting young women into independent living. A great casual atmosphere and the food is of a very high standard.

A great selection of homemade cakes and pastries - we had the coconut cake, cheesecake and peanut butter tart to share and they were all delicious! There are large comfortable sofas and it's a relaxing place to hang out. The cakes are well priced too.

Went here a number of times while in PP. The food is great, and the coffee is excellent. I really enjoyed the fruit bowl with yoghurt and Granola, and the chicken snitzel.

Just been back in PP for 1 week for work and again have found that 'Jars Rule'. Don't be lured by the trendy cafes opening everywhere - you get better food, more food, and better service at Jars. Go there a couple of times and you are treated like a long lost friend. Great people!

Visited this restaurant twice in the space of a few days, and found it a delightful haven of food, drink and peace. On the first occasion there were six of us having lunch, and on the second occasion there were three of us enjoying mid morning drink and cake. On both occasions the service and food were delightful, and we... More

This was recommended to me by a friend. Beautiful service, tasty cheap food Asian and western style. Last I saw the place was being renovated so should be even nicer now. Felt like a safe oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh

We have heard so much about this place from friends. We came for lunch and thankfully we were early to avoid the lunch crowd. The various meals we ordered were very good and generous portions too. The baked potatoes, fish fillet and the stir fried chicken were very delicious. But be prepared for slow service as they seemed to be... More
