Love the proximity to the Russian market. First time I have ever tried this café. It had an excellent, diverse menu – I particularly liked the sandwiches and the appetizers. When you were tired of Asian food, this is a great place. Has both air-conditioned and open air seating. There were about five or six other people there this Sunday... More

We went here after the Russian market. The wifi did not work and the prices seemed very expensive. The place needed a bit of a spruce.

My friends and I went here because we heard it was ethically for a good cause (the place helps give employment and training to disadvantaged Cambodian people). The food itself was excellent! And not too pricey. I would highly recommend the Mediterranean platters (there are also burgers etc there also!)

We had to escape the sweltering heat frm the Russian market and bumped into this little cafe which advertised they have an air conditioned room. It was upstairs and very small but the food was great! Just what the doctor ordered. Salads, wraps, paninis and much more.

Food here is delicious and it's a really nice clean atmosphere. They do western food and middle eastern food which were both done incredibly. I had a green chicken curry which was delicious.

We went twice - first for refreshing iced coffee downstairs - then later for lunch in the upstairs cool. Delightful, friendly service and excellent food. Very convenient for Russian Market shopping just across the road...

A cafe run by an NGO training staff in hospitality skills. Good local food with different dining areas - streetside, shopfront and upstairs. I was late in so just stayed downstairs.

My girlfriend and I we're about to explore the Russian market but we're a little peckish and stumbled across this little beauty. The food was stunning that we had. My girlfriend couldn't finish her food so I polished it off as it was so nice. Definitely recommend here, especially if have or going to visit the Russian market.

Thank Richard L
