We serve an American diner menu with Cambodian flavors!
“Java” is a slang for coffee and that’s where our story begins.
In 2000 we opened our first location with a small team of seven serving fresh coffee and baked goods. Since then we’ve expanded our menu from breakfast to dinner, while staying true to our food philosophy. We make every dish in our kitchen from only fresh ingredients.
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. We operate as a creative enterprise, using resources of the café business and artwork sales to support non-profit art programs.
We empower our teams to develop their talents, management skills and creative capacity. Monthly CREATIONS are designed by our chefs and reviewed by their peers.
Java offers an internship program to train individuals, giving them skills for regular employment. Additionally we work regularly with Friends-International to hire employees from marginalized communities.
We have made a commitment to significantly reduced plastic packaging and all our take away supplies and straws are bio-degradable.
