“Relief from the Russian Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The food is a bit average here so perhaps just stop for a drink and a sit down.

I stumbled across it when I was completely overwhelmed by the hot stink and the low ceilings of the Russian Markets.

I was thrilled to learn that the cafe is a training ground for underprivileged young people and vulnerable women. Happy to support that!

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

It's ok but I wouldn't go there again. It's a quiet little cafe for a drink in the afternoon but it's overpriced.

“Service Slow. Food was overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Good escape from heat in Russian Market. Downstairs was ok. Friendly service, but wait staff was slow and not attentive, food was slower.
Overpriced targeted mostly for tourists. There are other options nearby.

“Good location near Russian Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The chicken wrap was excellent. White wine was reasonable for the price. Good cafe atmosphere. Prices good and staff helpful. Good a/c upstairs. Downside: Food took some time because they were busy. Overall very good.

“Good veg options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Very good veg options and western food, in an otherwise purely khmer neighbourhood. Price is a little high, but it's pretty good.
