It really is easy in Siem Reap to support charitable organisations. This cafe is doing great things and it was nice to be able to support them. Excellent service and good choice of teas. Oh and brilliant chocolate brownies!

We were looking for Red Fox espresso and stumbled upon this place. Great fresh finger food (we ordered the Chicken tenders with onion rings, a plate of fries and two lattes) and they were all amazing.

We spent 4 weeks in Siem Reap and this was one of our favourite places for lunch. Food excellent, especially the potato soup! Delicious salads, huge portions. Best latte I found in Siem Reap. Amazing friendly, cheerful, helpful staff. Pleased and happy to have been able to support this training cafe for the young people of Siem Reap.
