Got a coffee craving you have to fix? Here is a list of affordable and high-quality cafes you might want to check out!
If you ever find yourself in Toul Tom Poung, one of the must-visit coffee places is, without a doubt, the Java Creative Cafe. Known for its homemade Western fusion food and organic milk-based coffee drinks, this loft-style cafe concept will help you feel as calm as you were at home. Enjoy a great selection of music and gorgeous greeneries that fill the spaces. Definitely one of our favourites!
Up next in the Toul Tom Poung neighbourhood, you will find the tasty Aussie-style cafe, Lot 369. Perfect for a lazy Phnom Penh weekend, this all-day breakfast spot has your healthy and greasy food needs covered. With classic brunch favourites and vegan + gluten-free menu items to go with your coffee, all that’s left is the minimalist decor and breezy open-air space to house your experience. If you need any more excuse to stop by, they serve ice-cream atop their pancakes.
If you’re in the mood for bread and pastries with your coffee, then Eric Kayser Paris is the place to be. Located in the Phnom Penh AEON Mall, this cafe complements its freshly roasted coffees with an award-winning French bakery that uses natural and premium ingredients.

Looking for a place that has something for everyone? The native Brown Cafe is perfect for any crowd. Not only is there one close by wherever you live in the city, it is also a great meeting spot for personal and professional needs. From a workspace to a chill-out spot, Brown Cafe is far beyond just a Starbucks knockoff with a full food menu to accompany the wide range of coffee and tea varieties (as well as tasty shakes!).
