Besides the best cake in town (really) and very good coffee I like the lovely garden with orchids and other flowers. You sit quite and shady under Mango trees. Also serve great lunch like the famous roasted pork as well as a variety of keesch, occasionally Döner Kebap and authentic german Leberwurst for sale. Well worth a try.

I knew Cafe Malay in its former location in the Old Market in Kampot some years ago and was always impressed by the schweinbraten - roast pork. Years later I decided to treat myself, would it still be as good? Yes, it was.

Situated on the right on the road between the 2000 monument and the Saltworkers circle it is a little tucked back and easily missed - look for the menu board and the yellow umbrella. A little garden with a bungalow in front and a small number of tables under an awning, gives it a fresh-air ambience.

On Fridays the special is schweinbraten with potatoe croquettes and red cabbage, a German dish. The pork was nice and succulent - some roast pork in town is quite dry - with crunchy puffy skin - crackling. The potatoe croquettes had changed, they were smaller than I remember and shaped into balls rather than little sausages, but there were more of them - mind you, one can never have enoiugh potatoe croquettes. I like red cabbage and it was a touch mild, I prefer a more vinegary taste, and there was a good portion.

Very satisfying, not a budget item, at $5.25, but excellent value and quality. Note: Get in early, the schweinbraten is very popular.

Somalay, the lady who runs the place is very friendly and helpful - and has a great memory.

With zero doubt I would eat breakfast here every day. Had the big breakfast and it was more than worth it. Better than backhome in Denmark.
