Java Creative Café

20 years of creativity


Java Creative Café is a café and community art space, established in 2000 at its first location near the Independence Monument. It was created by Dana Langlois with a small team of seven. Now, with partner La Sros, they operate a family of four cafés & art spaces located across Phnom Penh, including Independence Monument, Toul Kork, Toul Tom Poung and the newly established Futures Factory.

Java has its own house coffee blend, which is sourced from fair trade organic farms in Laos, Vietnam and Thailand and roasted daily in Phnom Penh. I’ve never had a bad cup of coffee here.
