Super fast internet

Superfast wifi in a well air conditioned atmosphere - perfect for getting some work done or just a little bit of space. Also had yummy grilled cheese sandwiches.

I like to go to places on my travels that benefit the local community in some way. Common Grounds is a place that I keep returning to. Their food is delicious, their wifi is great, and it is a perfect place to come and get some work done for an hour or two. Common Grounds is a part of various... More

Incredibly warm and friendly staff. Perfect for those traveling, looking for a place to hang out in air-conditioned comfort while accessing Wifi! Important to note that wifi is not great in Siem Reap, but Common Grounds is better than most. If everyone comes in and streams content or chooses to Skype, don't blame the wonderful and accommodating staff at Common... More

Good food. Friendly staff who are always so welcoming. Cold water on arrival...which is always appreciated on a hot day. Air con and good music. Internet cafe of choice! Thanks to all of the 'Common Grounds' team who always serve with a smile!

Despite being half empty and lots of staff, the service was slow but friendly. One meal came out 10 minutes before the other which means one person finished eating before the other had started. The warm sandwiches were a little "meh" but the pumpkin soup was good.

We had a group of 17 people (11 middle school students and 6 adults). The food was amazing and the service was great. Lots of things on the menu for you to enjoy and the shakes/smoothies were incredible. Highly recommend.

Good Coffee, Great food (from western greasy hangover-friendly to healthy asian-diet type) Great friendly service, Second floor is perfect for those Digital nomads who need to get work done.

This is an absolutely perfect place to work, study, or plan trips. The wifi is the fastest I've had in the past 3 months in SEA. Almost everyone in the cafe is working on a computer so there's absolutely no pressure to leave. We stayed for hours planning. And there's a closed off upstairs area with tables and couches if...

I lived in Siem Reap for 6 months and I always go back to Common Grounds. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. The wifi is good and the aircon is welcoming. Upstairs is nice to sit as work if need to for a couple of hours. Food & coffee are also good!
