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. I went to relax and ended up talking to new people the entire time. Depends on the... More

Tucked in a street a bit away ( not too far) from pub street this café is so good. The food is wonderful and the coffee is great. They use the proceeds to do great things for the Cambodian people which for me was a big plus. The area upstairs is quiet and a good place to do some work... More

I enjoyed a lunch here with friends recently, and was really impressed with the food. Their chicken sandwiches are awesome and they have a great selection of baked goods. Everyone enjoyed their meal here - would definitely come back next time I'm in town :)

Must visit - good coffees, reliable wifi and supports a fair local trade. Good choice of coffee types as well as sufficient pastry selection. Arts n crafts from local traders. What more could one want!
