“Lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

We went to the Hive in early January based on TA reviews and we were pleased with our choice. This is run by Australians and is a hipster-slash-backpacker haven. We sat on cushions (no chairs) in the loft and had excellent coffee, pancakes (also excellent), and a delicious chicken and vegetable curry-esque concoction (can't remember its name!). The service from the Cambodian server was good. We spoke to one of the Australian owners, and while he seemed a bit unfriendly and pretentious, I imagine he gets sick of the largely Australian clientele wanting to ask all about his experiences as an ex-pat. We would definitely eat here again for the atmosphere and the food.

Really good service and excellent food. Its mainly western food however as the owners are western it actually tastes like western food. The place has a very nice ambiance and is quite funky

“Cannot fault it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

We had a hankering for a burger, searched Tripadvisor and found The Hive @ number 3.
The cafe itself is well presented, clean and tidy with a funky inner city vibe going on.
The menu is no nonsense with a great selection of drinks (hot and cold), salads, burgers/sandwiches and pizza. We shared a beef burger for an afternoon snack-yummo!!
I was impressed to see that they use Lavazza-nice coffee!!
Could not fault this place - well done guys and I wish you every success!!
From your first Broome customers!

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Dropped in here for a coffee after visiting Louise Loubatieres Lifestyle Gallery (must do!). The coffee was great and so was the service. A little oasis in the back streets of Siam Reap. Free wifi available.

Great place for breakfast and a good coffee! They even had vegemite on toast - and delicious fresh fruit juices. Worth a visit.
