Before we even arrived in Kampot, while at a little cafe in Phnom Penh, we heard about the great food at Cafe Espresso. So it was with significant anticipation that we visited the restaurant run by Angus and Kiara. We were not disappointed. As a matter of fact, Angus is one of those great chefs who loves to experiment and... More

We were recommended to have a meal here by the owner of Champa Lodge. It was an interesting quite healthy menu and we really enjoyed our meal so much that we went back for a second one a couple of days later. Its off the main street and not too difficult to find.

We went to Café Espresso last September after reading reviews on TA. It did not disappoint. We didn't have the coffee as it was too humid but going back this September, with veggie burger and coffee a MUST!! Aussie owners friendly and great service.

This was a really cool and innovative place in Kampot. The food is all made from local ingredients, the coffee is roasted in house, and they even brew their own ginger beer (pretty strong, but real tasty!). They make a lot of their own cheeses and they are really friendly people. It's a great place to hang out and spend... More

This was our favorite place to come in Kampot. The coffee is incredible, and they have aeropresses that they will bring to your table. The food is also phenomenal here. We tried their vegetarian and meat options, breakfasts, lunches and desserts and all were amazing. We came here often over our two week stay in Kampot and they also have... More

The veggie burger (a spicy mix of lentils, beans and veg) was the best we've eaten in Asia, and the homemade pasta that they had on special was amazing. Highly recommended.

I was stuck in Kampot, waiting for my Vietnam visa to start and was at this place almost very day. Fantastic coffee, really nice owners, willing to explain the difference between the drinks to those who asked. Food was great, too.

Seriously. This is some of the best coffee we've ever had - including the states, where we are from. We found this very nondescript coffee house/restaurant thanks to a recommendation from a friend. Otherwise, we might not have found it. Thank God we did! Aside from having the best expresso, the food was very good. We just went there for... More
