I am referring to the Blue Pumpkin coffee shop at Phnom Pehn's domestic airport. Dear Management if you do not appreciate the amazing motivated, happy, committed staff you have you should do. The two boys were particularly funny and selling all the time, but in a very pleasant manner. All 4 staff were incredible and you should be proud to... More

Relaxing place with ice cream and cookies.. Look out for the outlet with cushion seats for you to comfortably lie back and relax.. If you enjoy reading, bring your book there!

It's disgusting. I hope the owner read this review and improve their restaurant. The waitress didn't wash her hand after cleaning and then serve food for customer right away. Her hand was holding a cleaning brush. WC is stinky. The owner should re-train their staff again, and ask them to wash hand regularly.

The ice cream is good and the sandwiches are OK. They do have a very friendly staff, and pretty good air conditioning, so I would have given 3 1/2 stars if that were an option.

Restaurant within Monument Books, Phnom Penh's biggest bookstore, with a good selection of literature on South East Asia. The restaurant is spacious and decorated in stark white and natural colors, giving it a 'designer' appearance. White tables and chairs mingle with comfortable lounger sofas. But the interior has seen better days and is starting to fray at the edges. But... More

We splurged for ice cream many nights during our Cambodia travels. Definitely a treat as a cone costs as much as dinner, but crapballs it's delicious. After months traveling throughput SE Asia we were infatuated with the deluge of creaminess. Plus they have comfy sofas to indulge on. Go treat yourself.

As an expat I think there are better places in Phnom Penh for ice cream. Tasting a little too sweet to my opinion.

Super comfy bed/sofas!! After the bus ride from hell, we arrived back in PP. Dropping our stuff at the hostel we set straight out with one destination in mind:Blue Pumpkin for food! Pitta, shakes and ice cream all absolutely gorgeous and you even get a view of the outdoor aerobics by the river in the early evening!

After you've been in Cambodia for a few days, it's good to relax and have a meal that takes you back home for a few minutes.

Have visited the Blue Pumkin many times, at each visit in Phnomh Penh we go there for a meal. Food was very good, prices ok. Service got a bit complaisant and not overly friendly. Place is always full with expats, definitely worth a visit if you are new in town, looking to connect with people
