A Must!

Stayed in Phnom Penh for 4 days and went there only once. What a shame! It is certainly the best meal i had in Cambodia: grilled chicken fajitas and berry smothie. Really big size portion, quality food and the smoothie was just delicious. Besides it's a quiet place, an art gallery as well. The Java... read more

I kept coming back here whether I'm alone, with my fiancé, or with family. Good ambiance, a quiet place beyond the busy streets. I enjoy their coffee and pastas. Blue cheese burger is a must. Cocktails a bit rough although they're a coffee shop but go for it during happy hours.

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.

Yummy, yummy food. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals at Java and the location upstairs was pleasant. Would return.

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
