They don’t serve food - Edit

I don’t know who put this place as vegetarian.
it’s not!
Happy cow isn’t reliable at all lately.
I wanted to rate it with one star but happy cow doesn’t have that option.

Cons: They don’t have food

Snacks, Health Tonics, & ART - Edit

You will be warmly greeted by the lovely couple that run this place. Definitely a place to go if you want to look at art and cool knick-knacks while drinking a delicious fizzy health tonic. These two shopkeepers have interesting views on society and vegetarianism. It's worth it to ask them about their art and their reasons for opening such an alternative shop. They used to sell meat and alcohol, then took it all off the menu and replaced it with hummus and healthy tonics. They also have healthy snack options (I got addicted to their "Mezze" platter, and their "Enzyme Express"). A lovely visit, very friendly couple, and amazing art. Highly recommend anyone to visit this café. Bring your journal and sketchbook, plop yourself down, and order an Enzyme Express. You will leave feeling inspired and uplifted.

Pros: Art Gallery upstairs, Lots of interesting souvenirs

Fairly limited - Edit

Didn't eat here but wanted to review just to let others know that there isn't a whole lot on offer here...Seems like there are a few breakfast options and a salad or two, but that's kind of it. Didn't really get what they were offering here...

Darren72 11 Apr 2017 - Hi there, we serve salads, dips, home made yogurt, tinctures and tonics, plus daily specials ... We are an Art Gallery and shop, with a small vegetarian cafe and smart bar ... The specials board carries a list of what we have on offer freshly made for the day ... :)

friendly service, good food, and clean - Edit

They have a vegan burger with house made patty that's pretty good. The service was very friendly. The place looks very clean and the ambiance was nice.

Western gem - Edit

So, even tho isn't a vegetarian restaurant, I must say half of the menu is vegetarian!
I had the mushroom risotto and it was delicious!
The place was great, confy and very "westernized"! It felt like I was just back home in a small coffe in NY or London!

Pros: delicious, great atmosphere

Cons: a bit pricey for Cambodia , the menu needs some "work"
