I visit Phnom Penh frequently and always visit Java Cafe. The staff are friendly (if a little slow - but that seems to be the norm in Phnom Penh). The atmosphere is relaxed, the interior is pretty but simple. I really like sitting on the upstairs balcony and watch the world go by. The fresh juices are really good, as... More

I had a latte and passion fruit juice and did some work here while waiting for a friend in Phnom Penh. The passion fruit was fresh and delicious, the coffee strong and amazing (but not too sweet!) There were lots of people in here working on laptops and ipads and I felt ok about staying and working quietly for longer... More

I wonder why service quality tends to drop when a place becomes successful. Java Cafe seems to confirm this. Service was slow, waiters were not responsive. So, three stars instead of the four I would otherwise give. I had a nice drink listed in the 'Recommended' menu. In the hot Phnom Penh weather, it was refreshing. I would have liked... More

The best place in Phnom Penh to just relax on the balcony and sip at an Iced Coffee, watching the motos speed down the Boulevard. If the heat has got to you (it certainly did for me), then this spot is perfect for to cool down, write your journal or answer all those emails from people in places significantly less... More

Such a disappointing visit. We've heard the coffee is good, so we wanted to try. Unfortunately, waiters weren't really particularly interested in delivering anything to our table for good 25 minutes after the order. May I add that we only ordered two coffees and two cinnamon rolls (not exactly hard to make). After the lukewarm coffee arrived (who makes Vietnamese... More

Great food and layout inside and out. The menu is based and a mix of Asian and Western styles. Everything was good, service was nice. Worth a visit for a great coffee.

I enjoyed this place - it was almost home away from home. A little higher priced than most places but if you are looking for a filling breakfast and great coffee this place is great. Great wifi, cozy environment and nice and cool! The staff are a little slow.

Located right next to the Independent Monument, Java Cafe is in a great location. They offer Mondulkri Coffee - which is a really smooth and flavorful Cambodian coffee. I also tried the banana and apple muffins and the white chocolate chip cookie. Everything was excellent. I'd recommend stopping by for a cup!

Th Java Cafe has been around at least 12 years....the bakery and cafe downstairs does great bread, cakes and coffee etc but there is a restaurant upstairs too accessed by stairs at the side of the buidling. The soups (either cauliflower or curried lentil) are both great as is the salad Nicoise. But the draw is the amazing passion fruit... More
