Came upon Common Grounds when the breakfast restaurant I had planned to eat at was inexplicably closed. It was so good that we came back again the next day! Great coffee, refreshing slushies, delicious quiches and omelettes, and the best pumpkin muffins that my mother or I have ever had! Service was also great, and the prices reasonable. Highly recommend.

Been spending a lot of time in Siem Reap the past three years, staying at U-Dara Inn, across the street from Common Grounds, and for some reason had never tried it, preferring to venture farther afield. Went today and found it a pleasant surprise. The shop is a roomy two-level facility nicely decorated and featuring excellent wi-fi and air con,... More

Came here after reading all the positive reviews on tripadvisor, but was sorely disappointed. While the service was friendly and efficient the coffee and food was not. My flat white was weak and milky and the mocha was super sweet. We ordered from the asian menu and the 3 dishes were not good, left without finishing any of the dishes.... More

The food and service were both excellent. We had a group of 9 and were served in a timely manner. Everyone ordered something different and it was all delicious.

Their smoothies are awesome and refreshing on a hot day! Best we had anywhere. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Some of the best wifi speeds around. A lot of expats and westerners. A socially conscious place that sells items in support of good causes and employs Cambodians for English and business skill development. Our large group agrees - 5... More

We were walking around in extreme heat, feeling tired after a long flight from Perth, and happened to find this little oasis. The air con and fab coffee was indeed a life saver. Staff were welcoming and we enjoyed our visit.

I wandered in after a quick google search told me I could make an international call to my bank (out of cash, card not working). While international calls are not offered as a service, the employees offered me personal cell phones and the cafe line to use! They were so sweet and helpful in my desperate situation. This place is... More

Very happy to have stumbled over common grounds. The staff, service, food and drinks were awesome. My kid ate all his chicken cashews. The atmosphere was relaxed and bright. I've been to the cafe in Vientiane and this is as good. Great selection. Well worth a trip and for a number of good causes

I definitely wouldn't recumbent this place for a quiet afternoon of reading, but if you need to get some work done, or have a quick work meeting, or even just want to connect with some local volunteers, it's a great place to go.
