  • Description


    I run a business with my family and friendly staff. Our mission is to provide high-quality service and products that exceed our customer's expectations. We opened 6 months ago and are seeking new and refreshing ideas for our menu and premises. We would like to learn about western cooking, share Cambodian cuisine and improve our English skills in the process. We would also welcome any painters or artists to bring their talents and ideas for decorating the cafe.

    The cafe is situated in Kratie, the Kratie provincial capital. The town is sleepy but picturesque, a great place to take in the pace of rural life in Cambodia away from bustling tourist hotspots. From the cafe, it's a 10-minute walk to the city which hosts a local market, restaurants, and bars which look out onto the Mekong.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn many things about our culture. Kratie is a small city which offers an authentic view of local life that isn't as easily accessible in larger cities. The center is busy with energy as people go about their day, the restaurants along the river offering a peaceful respite. You will be able to experience the food and pace of life here.

    The stretch of the river beside Kratie is also home to a group of rare sweet water Irrawaddy dolphins. I can help you to organize trips to see the dolphins or to other local landmarks around the province.

  • Help


    We are looking for anyone who could help teach us some western cooking, fast foods or desserts. Anyone who can play guitar or sing to lighten up our environment. Our staff has very little English skills so help in everyday conversation and interactions would also be greatly appreciated. Anyone with experience in a marketing plan to help us improve and plan for the future. We would also welcome anyone who is good at art or painting to help decorate the walls of the cafe.
