Comfortable Place

I had some amazingly delicious tomato soup and some good ice coffee to boot. It was very comfortable and I'm sure I could have stayed there all day.

Been traveling around Asia for a while now and this is maybe the most comfortable coffee shop I've been in. Plenty of space, which is rare, and the coffee itself is good too. Perfect place to relax. Great music too.

Great restaurant in Siem Reap! Has a variety of foods on the menu. Very clean and people who work there are quite nice and hospitable. The cafe provides support for an NGO-People for Care and Learning. You can also buy crafts made by local women in the restaurant.

A delightful spot to rest, eat and check your email in Siem Reap. The Air Con ( as they refer to A/C) makes it an enjoyable spot to rest and recouperate after a long day at Angkor Wat or after strolling the streets and shops. A big plus for me was that it is sponsored by People for Care and... More

Common Grounds is one of many "businesses with a mission" in Siem Reap: it serves good food and coffee but it also offers jobs and training to the many lost young people of the country, plus it helps support a local school. You'll do good and be glad you did.

I don't want to discourage people from going to Common Grounds, as I have eaten there several times before and found their food to be good, their service to be great and their prices reasonable. However, I do want to comment on one specific menu item - the American Breakfast. By any reasonable standard, I think their version is awful.... More

This is a great and popular find in one of the more upcoming trendy spots in Siem Reap just off the river. They make a great latte, offer some good sandwiches, cakes and pastries and have friendly service with a reliable wifi. Even better that its owned by a local so every $ spent there is supporting local entrepreneurship! Yes!!

Came here for a quick coffee and cookies and both were excellent. Fast free wifi and a quiet working area. The best part is that in addition to that you support a good cause. Staff was super friendly and quick. Highly recommended!

Wonderful warm welcome. Cosy seating area. Great strong flat white. Asked for extra milk because that cuppa had two shots of oomph!! So good I bought a bag of their coffee all ground up and ready to go. Wasn't hungry. But wished I had been because those cinnamon rolls looked super fine. Thanks for my fix.
