Fresh Eats Café was founded in 2007 by Homeland NGO to help Cambodian children from disadvantaged backgrounds gain an education and learn skills for future employment. Outside of school hours the children come to the café to learn hospitality skills and English. During the course of the day we train up to six children during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our goal is to provide the children with skills that will offer the opportunity for future employment in the hospitality business. In addition to the hospitality skills learnt at the café, the children are also taught weaving, sewing and traditional dance. The products displayed at Fresh Eats Café are made by the children in care at the weaving centre run by Homeland NGO.  All the funds raised go directly to the children's education and sustainability of the activity.

Great food at this little cafe

After a busy day we decided to have a light dinner here. They offer some amazing salads and also some incredible French fries (I swear they are made daily from potatoes). Also the fruit shakes are incredible. This is a great place to unwind after a long day in Battambang.

Sandwiches were ok, nice baguettes but plastic cheese and the steak was pretty chewy ($4 for steak sandwich). Hash browns and eggs were good! Service pretty on par with the rest of Cambodia (non existent) but it apparently supports a good cause.

The breakfast wasn't anything special (but it was OK). The staff is very kind and they can arrange bus tickets to your next destination.

We had a light meal here for dinner and the food was excellent. I am a vegetarian and there was a good choice on the menu. I only required a light meal and had a great Cambodian salad and potato wedges. These were actually from real potatoes (not frozen) and had a lovely herb coating on them as well. Service... More

Fun lunch spot. Good service, decent food and wide menu, not terribly expensive. We visited in off season so were suitably impressed to see the chef pop out the back and go down to the market to get ingredients for our lunch.

Went there because its a charity restaurant and the guide said it's good. Well we've been disappointed by the food, really basic for the price.

The service was poor; when I turned up I basically had to go into the back to find someone. Throughout the meal I then had to either stand up or try and grab someone as they passed. The food was worse :( I ordered the fired noodles. Sure, it was $3. It isn't going to be fancy. But they were... More

We thought we'd grab a take away sandwich here as it wasn't busy (empty- should have been the first sign). Little did we know we could have sat down and had a full meal in that time. So the menu for make your own sandwiches has each item priced individually. It starts at $1 for the baguette, then I order... More
