On the quieter end of Street 278, people tap at computers on handmade wooden tables at Artillery 2, the sequel to the original Artillery on Street 240½. The new venue is a breezy room with free WiFi and a covered outdoor area to shield patrons from the approaching rainy season. Owner Emma Fountain says the space differs in style from its sister venue. “We wanted to go for a kind of neighbourhood café,” she says. Artillery 2 serves up the same fresh selection of breakfasts, sandwiches and salads as its counterpart. The new café also offers a tapas menu in the evenings. Mezze plates start at $5, with wine and beer available.

13 Street 278, near corner of Street 57, Phnom Penh. Tel: 078 985 530. Open daily from 7am to 10pm. facebook.com/artillerycambodia; artillerycambodia@gmail.com
