One of my favorite restaurants in Phnom Penh is Java Café. I really love the cozy feeling upstairs, just next to the independent monument and it is relaxing to watch the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh, while enjoying a great coffee or a cocktail (happy hour late afternoon until 7pm). My favorite food is the California Salad with extra... More

We sat on the upstairs balcony for late afternoon cocktails(half price for a few hours). It was a great spot overlooking the Independence Monument and general busyness of Phnom Penh. Java has a colonial feel with comfy chairs and attentive service. We had been at FCC the evening before and I actually referred the Java Cafe. We ended up having... More

I tend to review restaurants based on the location. In Phnom Penh, I don't judge pizza the way I would in New York. But this place was really great. Lime juice and pumpkin ravioli were perfect lunch. My husband had a panini and cauliflower soup. Again outstanding. And we then had to try the baked goods that other patrons were... More

Great food, coffee, cakes and bakery goods, and cocktails - especially during happy hour. Plus a bonus for families they have a kids play room complete with toys, books, and a dvd library. Friendly and helpful staff.

Jave is a lovely place to meet for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Great sandwiches and tasty burgers at good prices. They do a yummy carrot and pumpkin soup and a nice bread selection. The balcony is a nice spot to sit with friends and the service seems to be always on point.

I've been coming to Java Cafe for quite some time now. Friendly wait staff, decent food and coffee. I agree with other reviewers that their breakfast portion might be small for the money, but i still think it's worth it for the taste and location. Plus, the place (upstairs) is nicely decorated with arts gallery. Overall, you're not coming here... More

No shortage of coffee shops in Phnom Penh. What sticks out for me here is their bagels and cinnamon buns. So GOOD! Probably the best cinnamon bun I have had in Phnom Penh. It was so moist It was tough not to order a few more. Also my wife and I enjoyed a couple of bagels for lunch. Quite nice.... More

I first dined here in 2006 and some eight years on, it still remains a great place for a coffee/baked treat, breakfast/brunch and lunch. There baked goods still knock the ball out the park and to keep to such a high standard for so long tells you they are doing something right.
