The Overview

One look at its pastel-pink walls, hot-pink silk lampshades and bubble-gum-pink menu, and it's clear that Madeleine's is a girl's dream come true. That girl—now a woman—is French owner Karen Le Calvez, also known as Madeleine. The Bordeaux-born chef learned to cook from her grandmother, spent years catering private parties and finally opened her own eatery in Phnom Penh a year ago. Nowadays she stirs homemade pumpkin–carrot–ginger soups, fills salads and sandwiches with organic greens, and bakes guilty pleasures like chocolate-chip cookies and carrot cakes topped with lime icing. Fittingly, the space is perfect for kids; it even has a playroom stocked with crayons and coloring books.
