A nice place to rest and relax after shopping at the Russian market. Nice decorations and ambience. Food and drinks standard were better than expected. Service is good. Prices a tad too expensive though.

A welcome air-conditioned room (upstairs!) in a pleasant cafe with free wifi and good cold drinks - albeit a bit pricey by Cambodian standards at around $3US. Staff quite friendly. Unfortunately we had bad experience with the food. We ordered a rice and bean wrap for $4US and it was completely flavorless - we couldn't even eat it - it was completely bland and dry. Didn't have the heart to complain as the staff were sweet and the money goes to a great cause. Highly recommend for a cool stop off though.

I had a chicken and vegetable Panini (can't remember what they called it). It was yummy, and big enough that I took half home for lunch the next day. The service was fast and courteous. The menu itself is primarily western foods/sandwiches and I found it to be somewhat lacking in inspiration. If you're in the neighborhood and looking for westernish food its good enough.

Bland, overpriced food and painfully slow service. Expect your order to be taken incorrectly and/ or the waiter/ waitress to wait about 20 minutes before telling you they don't have what you ordered. I had the most bland and tasteless pesto pasta that I have ever had the misfortune of eating. Staff are completely disinterested and prefer to play on their phones rather than take any notice of customers. They are clearly targeting the tourist market in the knowledge that the customers won't be back, so don't care about doing a good job. Best avoided, particularly with other much better lunch options available in the area.

I've eaten at Cafe Yejj several times. They have a solid menu and good service. At times the food can be a bit bland (i.e. some wraps I've had). They have a large drink menu, as well as happy hour specials. The upstairs dining room is air conditioned and is a great retreat after the heat of Russian Market. Overall, a nice choice for a quick lunch or breakfast.
