Great place to spend an afternoon or a meal. Free WiFi and great coffee and food. Last time I ate a Philly Cheese steak sandwich. It was delicious. I love that this is not just a coffee shop and diner, but it is a training place to help the local Khmer get training and skills. This... read more

A great café supporting a great cause. This was a lovely oasis with western and Khmer food available. The kids loved it and we all enjoyed the food and hospitality.

I have been here many times. It is comfortable, A/C to stay cool, some nice food to chose from and fresh. Also some nice bakery items to have with your coffee too. Profits from this place are used to help the Cambodia people which sounds like a nice bonus to me.

Common Ground does a good salad and a mean blackbean burger. I work nearby, and the staff are so kind and trusting. I once forgot my wallet when trying to buy some cheeky cookies and they told me not to worry, that I could come back the next day to pay. The crispy chicken salad (sub grilled for crispy...heh) comes... More

Common Grounds delivered on taste and a friendly atmosphere (and of course air con). Australian cafe staff would do very well to come and learn some manners from the staff here!

Stopped off in the heat of the day for a small bite to eat and good drink. Enjoyed a small quiche and loved the mango-passionfruit smoothie. Really hit the spot.
