“Great dining to help a meaningful cause”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

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!!

“What a find!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2011 via mobile

We stumbled across this cafe upstairs when shopping in the Daughters of Cambodia store and what a great find it was. The menu is great and excellent value for money. I had the beer battered fish with an amazing home made tartare sauce and my partner had the cheeseburger. Both meals were very tasty and well presented. The service could not be faulted. We were very impressed by this little hide away cafe that had great couches to sit on and relax in the cool. It was good to know too that we were supporting an organization that fights for an end to the sex trade for women in this country. What an excellent reason alone to eat here!!!
