A great "hit"

I was looking for somewhere with air con, decent seats and a great coffee. This covered all the bases and it had great coffee and helpful staff. This is my new place for completing my daily diary. Siem Reap is developing a great coffee culture.

I had an Americano and a passion fruit scone. Both just OK My girlfriend had an espresso which she liked. She also had a 'lava chocolate in a cup'. They serve it with a dollop of whipped cream on top. It best left off. She rates it as just OK. So nothing special here. There are much better places to... More

I've been going to this café since October 2013. By my second or third time, I realized that Common Grounds was run by a Christian-led organization, PCL. That didn't bother me. As a non-believer, I was happy to sponsor two Colombian children for a total of about 16 years through Plan International, which is also a Christian organization. While I... More

Flenice, Thank you for your previous visits to Common Grounds, and it my hope that this message allows us to have a business customer relationship once again. Recently, I did select different songs for our playlist, and as a desire to play uplifting, encouraging music with positive messages, I have added a couple of Christian artists to the current playlist....

Great place to relax & escape the heat while eating delicious food! The black bean burger is the best vege burger we've had away! Chipolte Mayo was so good! Perfectly cooked chips! Really worth supporting this great cafe!
