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.

Two young women from Melbourne Australia opened this café which is in a great location by the river. Food is great but a bit expensive but the coffee is fabulous .They need to work on the décor as it is rather cold and lacks atmosphere.

Thank you for writing us a review and we are glad you like our Coffee.

We are constantly striving to be better and always progressing with trends in the industry.
We are sorry that you find our food expensive, but that is due to using quality products, both imported and local and also pay our staff fair pay.

We hope to welcome you back into the cafe soon for another coffee :)

Having been to Siem Reap 2 times before, I was lucky enough to have been to this wonderful cafe many times on those trips, and now that I'm back in Siem Reap for a week for business, I can not get enough of this place. "EVERY" time I go here I don't miss my family while I'm away from home, as this place now feels like home and all the staff feel like my family. The food is great (but do love the chicken schnitzel roll the most) with lots on the plate and what have to be worlds best chips, and Asia's best coffee yes without a doubt SENSATIONAL COFFEE, at a very good price, to give wonderful value for the little money you pay. I will be back in June and guess what will be the 1st place we go, no not the temples but YES Sister Sray Cafe. Do yourself a favour and make sure if your in Siem Reap go and enjoy this wonderful place, for great food, coffee and the feeling your going home to enjoy some time with family.

We LOVE the breakfasts here! The servings are quite generous and the taste is fantastic! They make a WONDERFUL flat white! Desserts are great to take and keep for later if you are full! The staff is very professional and it's nice to see them working at a place that treats them with dignity and respect! I just can't encourage you enough to visit here! (you might have to go several times to try multiple items!)

Beautifully welcoming western and Khmer staff.
You can sit downstairs and watch the world go by across from the river with a delicious western quality coffee and meals.
The upstairs couches were a safe space to curl up and read a book in the heat of the day with a fresh juice beneath the breeze of a fan.
Will return again one day with this being my first stop!!

It's very nice place to enjoy a cup of coffee by the end of the day to see the sunset or wake you up in the morning. The coffee shop is very centrally located and the taste of coffee is so special and good price as well. Highly recommend to everyone
