We visited the Daughters of Cambodia Visitors Centre to support this wonderful cause - we wanted to buy some t-shirts but they didn't have the sizes in the styles we wanted so we instead headed upstairs for an afternoon coffee and something sweet.

All the staff members we interacted with in both the cafe and shop were friendly and helpful. We had the brownie, cookie dough balls and Khmer coffee. Well priced and yum - our sweet cravings were absolutely satisfied.

We're wondering if we have time to sneak in another visit before we leave Phnom Penh...

My wife , daughter and I had lunch at this very special, lovely and significant Coffee shop by the riverside in Phnom Penh.
Special because of the nature of what this coffee shop achieves in the help it gives to women of Cambodia, and lovely in the quaintness of its set up.
There is a shop on the street level where we had opportunity to purchase a number of T-shirts, bags, jewellery and other beautifully made products which help fund the organisation. The products have a appealing western design.
Lunch on the upper level was delicious and of good value.
The staff who served us was friendly, courteous and helpful.
The food was amazing both in taste, quantity and value. (Try the bonnifee cheese cake …it was worth the trip to Cambodia for just that!!)
The atmosphere was relaxing and tables were graciously spaced out so that you didn’t feel you were on top of your neighbour.
Oh yes… and the cold drinks were amazing.
We highly recommend a visit to “Daughters Visitors Centre” to hear of the work that this organisation does and to enjoy some good shopping, food and drinks. The cafe also has views of the river.
We will certainly visit there again next time we go to Cambodia.

Lovely waitresses and delicious food in the cafe, especially being there at an add time of 4pm. Lots of cute things to buy downstairs/ at front. Awesome concept

DOC sits on the riverfront, only a short walk from the Royal Palace, and is easy to find if you watch out for the pale blue sign.

The concept is one which we have seen often in our travels in Cambodia and Laos; a cafe/restaurant which supports disadvantaged or marginalized youth by teaching them skills- in this case, DOC supports women who have been exploited by the sex industry. It's worth mentioning that not all such places are genuinely helping those who work there, but this one seems to be the real deal according to our research.

The ground floor is a gift-shop selling various handcrafts, and the first floor is a cafe (you can also sit outside the main entrance but this is quite noisy due to traffic). There is also a nail-bar/spa, but we didn't see this while we were there.

We stayed for lunch and ordered a chicken & mango baguette, a roast pumpkin and spinach salad and two 'immunity lassis'.

We'd measured our expectations for the food knowing that these 'restaurants with causes' sometimes focus more on doing good than cooking good food; however our food was truly delicious.

The pumpkin and spinach salad was drizzled in a balsamic sauce and complimented by some homemade ricotta seasoned with cumin (sparse, but amazing!), and they popped some delicious cheesy garlic bread on the side.

The chicken on the chicken and mango baguette was slightly dry, however this worked very well with the deliciously juicy mango salad filling which needed the chicken and bread to absorb the sweet/sour flavours. We both absolutely loved this sandwich! It was a big baguette generously filled, so sharing it with the salad meant we didn't overeat on a hot days lunch.

I would also recommend the lassis-yum! See photos below of what we ate.
