First visited this cafe in 2009. Set up as a way of helping woman bounce back from various situations the original owner assisted the staff with various skills and I believe has now handed it over to them to run. The western food is above average, the local food is especially good, the smoothies are great. The service is very... More

Jars of Clay located around Russian Market and it is also one of my favorite places for late breakfast or brunch. Not only they serve good food, but they also serve many type of food with reasonable prices, and that was also why I keep going back to Jars of Clay when I visit Phnom Penh!!

For just a fraction of the price these meals are delicious with a home made touch. Everything from Western to Asian, breakfast to dinner...the menu is extensive and everything is good!! Need a break from the heat and a great feed...go to Jars of Clay just down the road from the Russian Markets. Fantastic location, free wifi, clean and cheap!!!... More

This place has excellent beef loclac. I recommend taking it to go as the place is small and a little dark. But it's also for a great cause!

An exciting and tiring visit to Toul Tompoung(Russian market), which was concluded by a great meal at nearby Jars of Clay. We started with succulent fish fillet with lemon and complemented by variety of veggies. As if not enough, we followed-up with sweet tasting chocolate cake, then finished it with excellent tasting cappuccino. To top it all,we found out that... More

I never usually go back to the same place unless the food is really and service is really good. I've visited Jars of Clay twice during my this trip to Phnom Penh. I would recommend having the Lok Lak and also the Curry dish. If you're in for some thick, coconut and nutty flavours then please try the Amok and... More

The prices have appreciated since three years ago but they are still reasonable. I had a plate of beef fried rice (USD4.25/£3.25), which was substantial, and it came with a delicious clear soup that is usually served with chicken rice in Asia. The Coke float (USD2.75/£2.10) was refreshing. A popular hangout for tourists and expats in the Russian Market area,... More
