Description: Sister Srey Cafe is a Social Enterprise, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Run and operated by Sisters Lauren And Cassie. The Girls, opened the business to have "Good Coffee" and also help and support Khmer students and to make a sustainable impact into the community. Our vision at Sister Srey Cafe is to support young Khmer students who struggle to keep a balance between study and supporting their family. Each staff member in trained in hospitality, English language skills, personal development, health and hygiene and banking. We are a stepping stone to a brighter future and a means for them to have skills and knowledge to approach the world empowered and confident. Sister Srey has various incentives and activities in which support the local and rural community. The cafe goes to sustainable measures to help the environment and to be as enviromentally friendly as possible. We are commited to being plastic free, having bio degradable food packaging, organic coffee and miniamising waste. Monthly, our staff participate in our community service program "Helping out a friend" Where each staff member chooses a NGO or project of choice and do something for people less fortunate than themselves. To date we have had, staff building wells and toilets for families, participating in a soup kitchen to feed street children and health workshops. Sister Srey also composts all waste and goes to directly to NGO Green Gecko Farm and has a sustainable recycling program and waste management system. Since opening, the Cafe works along side Hearts to Harmony Foundation. This means 20 percent of profits from the Cafe as well as donations go towards Hearts to Harmony to supports individuals through education, health and hygiene, and supports rural families. Sister Srey is a social enterprise. A cafe with a heart, a cafe with the desire to see change and with the ability to do so.

An excellent little cafe in the centre of Siem Reap, which serves excellent coffee and top notch food. Good service, and an ethical side too.

Visited Sister Srey for some smoothies and a bite to eat. I can't fault the place. Great atmostphere. Good service. Friendly owners and staff. Delicious food and drinks. And the decor is just so comfortable and relaxing. Go here with your book or grab one from their great bookcase and chill over an ice cold beverage.

We revisited again before we left Siem Reap.

Living in Siem Reap great coffee was hard to find.....but not any more. The amazing sister duo hailing from Australia have saved the day for coffee lovers. Perfectly situated to the river and old market, Sister Srey cafe is the perfect location to stop and watch Siem Reap life whirl by.
The bubbly staff and welcoming atmosphere and home baked treats makes me feel like back home. The cafe is also very child friendly with the staff all taking time to chat with my children and spoil them with cookies. Upstairs they have created a book swap which has a fantastic range of books to suits all ages, genres and tastes that can have you browsing for ages. A cool funky cafe in more ways then one. Check it out!!

It is so very refreshing when you are at a cafe and every last little detail has been considered. The placements are home-made, each decorated with their own inspirational quote; there are fresh flowers in jars, the music is relaxed and spares you the generic euro-pop trash (YeSS!!), there is an upstairs room with comfortable couches, a book-share wall and the menu is well considered and doesn't read like a 100 page manual. And the perks go on..the coffee was REAL espresso, beautiful milk and the best we had in siem reap. The fruit and granola, the fresh green veggies with sesame vinaegrette and to see thickly sliced, nicely browned toast with vegemite just warms the cockles. These Australian lasses are onto a good thing and are obviously doing a splendid job in their hospitality mentoring of the young staff. We'll be telling our friends about this one.
