While Jars of Clay is a bit of an expat hangout spot, this incredible cafe is a real gem hidden amongst the hustle of the Russian Markets. It's the quality of Western food, especially the schnitzels that impresses me the most. When you just need a bit of respite from Khmer food, this is the place to go. Also a... More

This place is incredibly popular with expats and I can totally see why. It's a little slice of home with some fantastic western dishes such as lasagne and fish and chips. The food is lovely with plentiful portions and the desserts are to die for-the only issue is choosing which one to have from the daily menu! The Khymer dishes... More

I lived in Phnom Penh for 3 months and probably ate here every week. Great selection of meals and desserts and plenty of vegetarian options.Portion sizes were great and worth every penny. Staff lovely and friendly and atmosphere nice and relaxed. The fact that the business is for a good cause makes it even better. Definitely worth a visit!

Very good food, nice casual lounge atmosphere. The cause is amazing, it helps local women support themselves. The chicken stir fry here was probably the best meal I had in Phnom Penh! Love the flavor.

Jars of Clay is a great cafe. I live around the corner and I often go for breakfast and work from upstairs in the A/C. Food is yummy (pancakes and carrot cake!). Staff are friendly and WIFI is pretty good. They also have a gift shop upstairs with cookbooks, cooking oils etc. if you are looking for nice gifts.

Cute, 2-story place run by all Khmer women and I think a percentage of its profits go back to programs that help those who need it. Really good western comfort food located just around the corner from the Russian Market. Get the lime soda !!

Maybe it isn't perfect. The decor is dated, they do play the same tired religious tape on a continuous loop some days, and sometimes the handholding Christians who like to publicly 'say grace' are just toooo much BUT the staff and food are lovely. The food isn't the cheapest but it is damn good European food. I eat a lot... More
