“Best (and only) Coffee in Poipet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Not much from the outside, this seemingly unexpected gem has good coffee and western food. As an NGO worker, I often travel to Poipet for work. This is one of the only places we like to stop at! Best in Poipet because there isn't much else around.

“Totally awesome.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Been in Poipet a week and a bit and have done the casinos, the markets, a few other places then came this place. Don't let the drab exterior fool you - best BLT in town or pretty much anywhere. Staff are super friendly - speak great English and again the food is wonderful. Can't tell you how relieved I am to find this place. Do yourself a favor and eat here. Oh yeah - air and free wifi. Bj

“The only French Toast in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This appears to be the only western restaurant in town. I had breakfast here and was happy with the service and food. The coffee was terrible, but the French Toast was amazing so it balanced out.
You can walk here from the border but it's about 2 Km so catching a moto for 2000 or 3000 Riel seems like a better plan.

“A good choice in Poipet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Not a great menu and considering we were in Cambodia I found the prices a little steep, but on the whole a pleasant eating experience made to seem better than it is by its immediate environment, i.e. Poipet itself. Would still advise it though for a pleasant stop off.

“definitely no.1 in Poipet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

this Christian-based centre happened to be almost next-door to the hotel we were staying in, so we tried it the first morning ... and were not disappointed in the least. In fact for the rest of the week we had all our breakfasts and evening meals there after that, we felt so at home.The menu was limited, yes, but the food was very good, and the girls working behind the counter were wonderful in every way and worked their socks off to make our meals there enjoyable, especially the one who spoke English.
4/5 for food but 6/5 for the service and welcome
