“Fresh and peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2014

Yummy coffee and cake, and brunch. Great location within the botanical gardens surrounded by plants, with open sides to the cafe- even good when its pouring with rain!

“Nice quiet place in the center of Phnom Penh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Excellent place for breakfast. Quiet and relaxing back garden. Perfect place to grab a bite to eat and have some peace from Phnom Penh.

“The whole place seemed neglected and tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

I can only guess that this place is under new ownership because when we went there was no sign of any art and the plants, like the whole place, seemed neglected and tired. The rear courtyard is a quiet shady retreat from the noise and heat of Phnom Penh. The staff were friendly, as everywhere in Cambodia and the food quality was good. It just wasn't the place we thought we were going to be visiting from the trip advisor reviews.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Great place in busy Phnomh Penh. They have a small, cute backyard garden to relax in, away from the bustle. The wifi reaches out there, which is ideal. Their Breakfast Set is a very good deal: we got a plate of eggs with ham, bacon and toast, plus a dessert plate (we picked Crepes with Vanilla Ice Cream) plus a Coffee / Tea (we had Lattes) for $4 / breakfast set. A really good deal, especially in this central area. The rest of the menu is slightly pricier. The service is excellent, very nice and caring staff. Definitely a sweet find! Highly recommended.
