La Chronique Café Bistro Opens

We can almost hear the words, “Yet another coffee shop”. However, La Chronique is trying

to shake things up a little with its style, and top class coffee. As one of the latest ventures to open in the Toul Tom Poung area of Phnom Penh, La Chronique has taken the traditional design you’d expect to see on the pavements of Paris and given it a Cambodian twist. The café and bistro boasts tiled floors combined with heavy wood and wrought iron effects. Specialising in providing top-tasting coffee, its professionally-trained baristas use specially sourced variable temperature kettles and a Hairo drip scale to create smooth brews. Coffees take in ristretto ($1.79), gingerbread latte ($2.59/ $2.89) and blackeye ($2.19). Food includes pastries, cakes, cookies and muffins.

60 Street 135, Phnom Penh. Tel: 086 888 559. Open daily from 6pm to 9pm.
