Tonnes of young Cambodians are eagerly awaiting this Valentine’s Day to snag some special time with their friends, family and loved ones. While some are planning a relaxing get-away to the provinces, others are looking for romantic spots in the city.
And if you’re looking for that perfect spot in Phnom Penh this February 14, we’ve found the perfect place for you: Monte Rosa & Galaxy Café.
This ice cream shop has a retro feel, decorated with multi-colour shapes. The stark combination of red, orange and green makes you feel immersed in modern fantasy.
The tables and chairs follow suit with colourful, unique shapes. Some are round and some are square, and they span from small to large.
We cooled off from the city’s heat by taking a seat at a small round table by the air-conditioner. The café had so many different choices of beverages and ice cream flavours that we took quite a bit of time to decide on what we wanted.
Finally, we went for some sumptuous fruit-flavoured ice creams and shared them between us.
“The flavours of our ice cream come from Italy, and we have 14 different flavours,” said Khek Sonaro, the café’s manager.
“Our clients love the taste of our ice cream and also its unique decoration and appearance.”
The prices for frozen beverages and ice cream are set at about two dollars.
The staff at Monte Rosa & Galaxy Café is indisputably kind, gentle and polite.
On holidays and special occasions like Valentine’s Day, a café like Monte Rosa & Galaxy is a great way to break the regular routine of shopping for food at the market or having a meal at the same old restaurant.
Enjoy the cool, sweet taste of a milkshake or ice cream with someone special.
Monte Rosa & Galaxy Café is located at No. 225 Mao Tse Tung Blvd, Phnom Penh, across from Vanda Institute.
