Bottomless Coffee in Phnom Penh? Where? How much?

Postby General Mackevili » Sun May 18, 2014 2:51 pm

Sometimes I love me some free refills!

If I'm really feining for a place to just relax and spend a few hours getting jacked up on coffee, I know of only 3 places. Surely there are more?


1) LoneStar

Probably my favorite. The owner runs it with his family, and luckily his family is full of beautiful women. That is always a plus.

They have good Wi-Fi and the place has aircon (after around 11AM).

He also had a big screen that's usually showing sports or news. Most of the time they have the TV on and some laid back jams playing.

If memory serves me right, it's $1.50.

2) Alma Cafe

Because of its location in the Russian Market area, which is where I live, I go here most often.

No aircon, but nice and breezy with huge fans all over the place.

They also have lovely staff.

My biggest complaint with Alma is that their Wi-Fi is hit or miss, and the staff seems to be confused when you ask them to plug/unplug the router.

My other complaint is that they close at 2p.m. How do they expect me to eat breakfast there when they close so early?

It used to come free with any $4 breakfast/$5 lunch, but now it costs $1.


3) Cafe Yeji (or something like that)

I've only been there once. Nice little place. Indoor and barely outdoor seating downstairs, and what appeared to be an aircon room upstairs.

I think it said $1.50 on the menu.



They all seem to have copies of either The Phnom Penh Post or The Cambodia Daily, or both, and some of the other publications around town

A few other places give you one refill, like Freebird, but that's not the same.

I'm happy with all 3 of those places, but I would love to know of some more options around town.

Totally agree. I went once and wasn't impressed.

Well damn, I guess I'm shocked their coffee was so cheap then.

Mind you, Cafe Yeji IS one minute away from Alma's Cafe, so how are you gonna compete with that!?

I saw the headline and clicked to tell you Lone Star, Alma, and Yeji. Those are the only three I know of as well.

Unfortunately, I'm addicted to the $4 coffee. I'm trying to back off a bit.

Yejj's food was always very good in the past - haven't been in 8 months even though I pass it everyday. Great paninis, breakfast wraps. A little on the pricy side, but not really too much considering it's a stone's throw from Russian Market, aircon upstairs and you can fill yer boots with all that coffee.
