Keeping fit may not be the hardest thing in the world but it is not that easy either to juggle between taking care of your health with a busy schedule or while traveling. You might need to find good places that you can enjoy good food and drink while being health-conscious and guilt-free. Here is a suggestion to be considered.
With multiple locations in the capital Phnom Penh, Backyard is one of the few vegetarian-friendly cafes in the city. Furthermore, it is a perfect spot for you if you want to have a healthy first date, a big health-conscious lunch, a community space to meet up with friends, or even a working space for freelancers to work in front of their computer.
Like most of the health-friendly cafes in town, Backyard Café places importance on producing good food from freshly locally-sourced and highly nutritious wholesome ingredients. The café specialties are seasonal, unprocessed, clean foods. In addition, their variety of the menu extensively ranges from gluten-free to sugar-free to vegan to vegetarian choices. The price ranges from 6$ to 20$ depending on your order.
At Backyard, you can also enjoy the healthy kind of birthday cake, and their juice cleansing program. Although albeit slightly pricey for most locals, you will in return get a highly nutrition-packed diet for the next five days, which would make a dense in your health-keeping routine.
Another charm of Backyard Café is that they are an environmental-friendly café. They use plant-based and eco-friendly packaging and bamboo straws in their restaurant. They also recycle most of their waste as well. Hence, you can enjoy a guilt-free lunch without feeling irresponsible toward the environment.
Moreover, as part of their social responsibility, 10% of their profit would be donated to The Good Vibe Foundation, which is an institution working on providing good food and nutrition education to children and their families all over Cambodia. Additionally, they also prioritize the personal development of their team members too by setting up a fund that will enable the members to invest in further opportunities, support their families, and pursue their education. Consequently, you will get to enjoy good food and feel good about the money you have spent there too.
Although I may not be the biggest café enthusiast here, it is not easy to find a good vegetarian-friendly place to eat with extensive options. Since most restaurants here prefer to fully cook the food, it is especially harder to find a satisfying meal with good wholefood. At Backyard, you can get to enjoy healthy delicious food at a reasonable price range, and be a responsible customer at the same time.
