Java Creative Café

where creativity is brewing


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 three cafés & art spaces located across the Phnom Penh, including Independence Monument, Toul Kork and Toul Tom Poung.

Java has pioneered a creative enterprise model in Cambodia, using resources of the café to support non-profit and independent art programs. Across the three spaces, it presents a curated series of exhibitions, Creative Generation award program and live performances in a black box theater.


Our own Java coffee blend is sourced from fair trade organic farms in Laos, Vietnam and Thailand. Then roasted fresh daily so you can get the best cup of java.


Java is committed to serving fresh food, made in-house with locally sourced ingredients. We make everything by hand including all our bread, pasta and sauces.


Java has been a leader in the Cambodian contemporary art field, hosting hundreds of exhibitions, and providing space for dialogue, collaboration and experimentation.
