Stumble upon this by quincidence. Great spot, great interior (check out the upper level as well). The menu clearly states what one with food allergies can eat which seems rare here so we were super happy. Not to cheap but totally worth it! Go check...it outMore

I wish I'd found this place sooner as I only had time to visit it once. I had a combo of fruits with toasted muesli which was to die for - complete rejuvenation in a bowl, cool and fresh on a hot day.

You have to try this place when you’re in Phnom Penh. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian, you will find plenty on the menu that appeals to you. They have delicious smoothies, creative bowls and guilt-free desserts. Healthy never tasted so good! I was a...repeat customer and I can highly recommend this cafe. Sure it costs more than street food in Phnom Penh but if you want quality food that is delicious and nutritious, then it is worth it to pay the extra.More

Went here to do work and ended up ordering a chicken sandwich and coconut smoothie. Let me say that the side salad that came along with the sandwich was absolutely fantastic. Fresh ingredients and well-dressed, definitely could tell quality is prioritized here. Chicken sandwich was...very good as well. There are a wide array of menu options to choose from that cover all of your dietary restrictions or needs. I will say I wasn't a fan of the coconut smoothie, it was oddly warm and it didn't really taste like much of anything even with the vanilla that they include in it. Also the inside of the location I was at was really warm which was a bummer since it made it a little harder to do work there. Would come back to try other menu items, probably will visit the other location next time.More

If you’re gluten free and need a really delicious meal, this is the place! The staff are very lovely and there’s a brilliant amount of choice for coeliacs. Are here several times in 3 days!

I just love these cafés. The staff are lovely the food is amazing and every mouthful of food challenges your taste buds. On my travels around Cambodia, I spent most of my time in the cafés. It was like an oasis after being on the...island and only having plain rice and vegetables to eat. Can’t recommend this place enough.More

the fact that this was really the low point of handling pandemic rules (in transition, and quite soft in the Kingdom anyway), by staff even more entitled and could-care-less than the clientèle (which in places like that is always annoying), and the worst the higher...up (the female manager was insufferable), really makes me reduce this. It just gives a shabby, coercive atmosphere to places like this. The food this time was also much worse than ever before - the care, the love seems to have gone missing; maybe they fired the old kitchen staff? It was the kind of bland vegan stuff one knows from everywhere; rabbit food. Still nice drinks though, but all of it super pricey - one way to keep normal Khmer people away for sure; rich Khmer gilded youth doesn't go to semivegan cafés to look cool. Every time I've been in PP, I dropped by the Backyard Café at least once. Next time, probably not.More

I’ve heard of this place from a friend many months ago, and I was finally able to come with some friends. My friends ordered a power bowl and a salad which both very fresh and tasty but the salad was a little small for my...friend. I am a meat-lover and ordered the “badass burger”—I didn’t realize until my dish arrived that it was a veggi-burger. It was clearly marked so my mistake. The vibe of the restaurant is great with outdoor seating with lots of greenery. If I ordered a normal meat burger, I might have enjoyed my meal more and therefore possible a 5. I would definitely come back if I felt like eating healthy and yummy. We had smoothies at the end of our meal—they were great.More

Located on a side street in downtown Phnom Penh, the Backyard Cafe offers a wide range of speciality coffees and teas and some great food options that lean toward but not limited to vegetarian and vegan. Don’t let this put you off if you are...a full on carnivore as the quality, presentation and taste of the choices I’ve tried so far are all excellent! Staff were friendly and efficient. Try this, you won’t be disappointed!More
