This cafe was a great find. A very nice place to chill out away from the noise of the city. Food was very fresh and tasty. Service was brilliant and very speedy.

This is a rare gem in this seafood and carnivore centric city and country. While, it is not entirely a vegetarian restaurant, the concept and the ambience are fresh, the food is healthy, service is with a smile, and generally a relaxing place. This is the place to come and chill, while they 'slow cook' your order. Menu is extensive though the vegetarian items are limited, but they are awsome. Had chilled gazpacho soup, that was not exactly chilled but slightly lukewarm but with a very interesting texture and flavor. The wrap, the bruscheta and the fresh juice were wonderful.

The prices are high by Cambodia standards, but very reasonable by international standards. You get, organic, healthy food in a beautiful ambience, and it is worth it.

Every thing here seems to move in slow motion. An order of coffee can take forever - I am sure Angkor wat was built in less time than it takes them to assemble a simple sandwich. And when your coffee finally arrives, it tastes like they left the caffeine in the kitchen.

Not sure why organic in a country that's underdeveloped and poor. Surely most food is organic given many free range chickens, and simple farming techniques. Coffee was tasty, fresh squeezed passion fruit was great, omelette was okay on lovely European styled bread.

Dear lubeluchic,
At Naturae we believe that we are what we eat, and how we eat can either enhance or damage us and our local environment.
We do our best to encourage what is best about contemporary natural Khmer produce and farming. We use produce that is organically produced, do not use toxic pesticides, or support unsustainable farming practices, that irreparably damage the environment, emphasize healthy eating and well being.
Given the rapidly growing presence of fast food chains in Phnom Penh that rely on battery farming of animals, use preservatives, and serve foods that are high in sugars, additives and carbohydrates we feel that the ethos of restaurants like Naturae that attempt to provide an alternative is relevant and of value.
Finally thank you very much for your complimentary comments about our coffee, fresh juices, and bread!

The breakfast here is amazing!
Organic, perfectly cooked eggs, tasty homemade pineapple jam, soft fresh bread, fresh passionfruit juice, not to mention the fantastic service.
Highly recommend.
