The chocolate brownie to which I added vanilla ice cream was just delicious as was was my espresso. The total cost was... read more

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. This is a bright high ceiling cafe with a mezzanine and good airconditioning. Being a cyber cafe, people were also on their laptops etc while enjoying refreshments. Staff were very... More

Common grounds has a lovely staff and diverse menu. They offer breakfast all day and the food is always fresh and tasty. The staff go out of their way to greet you and they even remember what you ordered on a previous day. They are located on a quaint little street in bustling Siem Reap. They also offer take out...

Great café, where the profit is spent for a good cause. Lovely friendly staff, as well as nice coffee and food. We had probably the BEST cinnamon roll ever in this place! A must try!

Loved the air-con, loved the colors, food, coffee, waiters... pretty much loved everything about the place. There are an increasing number of cafes in Siem Reap but very few can compare with Common Grounds.

The first time I went, it was past their operating hours (think I reach at 9.30pm?). So the next day, I came slightly earlier at 7.30pm - to my surprise, it looks like they were going to close soon. There wasn't any other customers around. However, the staff assured me that they are still open and took my orders. I... More

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.
