We went to this cafe above Daughters of Cambodia today and were so pleasantly surprised of this fabulous cafe. The food was fresh and delicious, plus the service was warm, friendly and fast. They serve mostly Western-cafe style food., i.e., sandwiches, burgers, fish and chips, etc, and muffins, cupcakes, cookies, etc., and everything is made onsite. We had the fish and chips (the best fries we've had in Asia!) and the chicken and mango sandwhich on a fresh baguette, and then topped off the meal with a chewy brownie served with vanilla ice cream...oh, it was so good! Plus, I had a great cappuccino, too.
The staff of the cafe are young women who have left the sex trade industry (told most of them were forced into it) to seek rehabilitation, gain new life skills to be self-sufficient, and support to reintegrate back into society to be contributing members of their community. By dining here, not only will you have a great meal, but you'll be supporting a great cause, too!
Also, on the first level, there's a store, Daughters of Cambodia, with wonderful, handmade finds, ie., clothes, handbags, pillows and jewelry, etc., and a small spa to get manicures, pedicures, and neck and shoulder massages. After lunch, I had a pedicure and bought several items from the store.
I was really impressed with the quality of the cafe and products in the store as well the wonderful customer service. I HIGHLY recommend this place!!
