The food is always good and the coffee is excellent. Coming from a city that is known for their coffee and coffee shops I feel I have high standards, this place makes me feel at home.

They also donate all profits to ministry and development in Cambodia. Eating a great meal for a great cause and you can't go wrong. Good service and friendly staff! Breakfast, lunch,... More

The cappucinos were good. I'd also recommend the spring rolls if you need a snack. The baguette chicken sandwich I ordered was average... More

We can't recommend this place highly enough. Staff were attentive and efficient. We went for lunch after a recommendation from friends who live in Siem Reap and we weren't disappointed. High quality food and service for really great prices. Excellent value for money. We had a burger with complimentary soup and a ham and cheese toasted sandwich with complimentary salad... More

I highly recommend Common Grounds. The staff are efficient and friendly, the profits go towards a great cause, and the food is scrumptious! Try the iced coffee with sweet cream, the cinnamon bun, and the build-a-breakfast, those were my top favorites!

Great iced coffee and grilled cheese sandwich. This place provides training for locals to use in future careers and also provides funds to build homes for Cambodian families.
