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

I will start with a PSA: if you want to have full range of the menu, come to this establishment during lunch. We came for dinner and half of us had to choose our second option, since they ran out of everything earlier in the...day. That being said, if you desire a quiet meal, come here for dinner! It is super calm. And was super calm when we came. Now: food - amazing and cheap for how much you get! Staff: really kind and helpful, but slooooooow.More

If you’re as much a clean eating, veg-friendly, health foodie like me, you will absolutely love this place. Apart from the lovely atmosphere, this place offers a wide range of very healthy food options. I have gone twice now and both times pleasantly pleased. The...first breakfast was a simple omelet with seeded bread. Can never go wrong with an omelet. Although, I must say I am not thoroughly impressed with their bread. The second time, I went for the avocado toast, which was very interesting and daring in flavors. Smashed avocado, mango slices, pickled sweet radish and (MY FAVORiTE ) cashew cheese! Yumm, so tasty!!!!!!!!! Again, not impressed with the bread but super yummy nonetheless. I will continue to return until I have tried most of the menu. The staff is also very lovely and attentive. I highly recommend this place! WILL BE BACK…yard!More

The food was amazing, but they didn't have everything on the menu, and told us after we had placed our order. The juice and tea were good as well. It did take a while to get our food, and there were not that many people...there. Clean place with very friendly staff. Would give them a visit.More

Had late breakfast here today. We, ordered the first two smoothie bowls on the menu. At first sight it looked a bit small the portions but it was more than enough. Some people consider the place to be overpriced but I think you're paying for...good quality and freshness.More
