La Chronique: Sangkum Reastre Niyum-themed cafe

La. Chronique Bistro and Cafe has been serving Phnom Penh for a few months now. Come here to experience the Sangkum Reastr Niyum chronicles and get a taste of their delicious selection of coffee!

The two-story cafe bistro, of course, focuses on the historical concept and architecture of Cambodia and France. This place provides quality mcoffee, beverage and food along with a welcoming and unforgettable environment.

The name, La Chronique, also reflects the remaining French influences in Khmer culture, and the 22-year-old owner, Oeng Raksmeypich, has set up a warm space with black and white chequered title floors and mix of antique and modern furniture, with steel lighting fixtures hanging throughout. If you come inside the cafe, you will notice that one wall is built nearly entirely of chequered glass doors (Souce: Phnom Penh Post).
