Good food, good people

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... read more

For those who want some comfort food close to the Russian Market this is a great place with good food and friendly staff. The lime soda is very refreshing and the carrot cake is moist and delicious.

It's cool with aircon but it feels a bit 90s to me. The foods fine but it's hard to feel strongly about Jars. Nice people but just doesn't have a unique feature

I love this place so much! I live in Phnom Penh and I come here several times a week. The food is great and the service is excellent. If it looks full downstairs, head to the back and climb the stairs up. Also, check out their cakes - I recommend the spiced apple and walnut or the carrot and ginger!

This was one of the first charity coffee shops/restaurants to open in Phnom Penh. All the staff are being trained to lift them out of poverty or danger. It was our favourite place to take our grandsons for a treat or visitors to give them both an excellent meal and a taste of what so many Christian charities are doing... More

If ur in or near the market and want a AC coffee cake break this is a good place to relax.... The heat can zap you and the coffee and cake can give you a much needed boost.

It is convenient to the Russian Market and has a homey feel. The lay out is complicated since it is in a typical Khmer shop. Food is pricey for what you get.

Just hopped of the plain in Phnom Penh, and this place didn't disappoint. Lovely accommodating staff and good food. Worth a visit!

We liked the cosy setting in this cafe where we can get away from the hustle and bustle of the area (near Russian Market) to savour the moment and enjoy good food.
