This cafe is located in Kandal Village, has free wifi, aircon (very important in Siem Reap's sweltering heat) and more importantly very yummy menu! We loved our grilled fish with rice...... The cafe staff are friendly and service oriented.

I have another coffee place I like to frequent on Route 6. But near the river and night market area, this is my go-to coffee spot. The coffee tastes good, the atmosphere is open and nice, and the wifi is free and fast. It's tucked away in a little corner not far from the night market area and it's great... More

Coffee, food and service are awesome! I loved the hazelnut chocolate latte and the chicken salad sandwich was huge. Soup was ok...but I'm a soup snob. 😜

Great coffee, friendly staff and our salads for lunch were just what we hoped for. Wifi was quicker than our hotel. My friend had the pumpkin soup and raved about it.

Nice place, run by attentive staff, and in support of noble cause. We were immediately served glasses of ice water, which was appreciated (and rare). I ordered a Western omelette which was plentiful (came with potatoes, fruit salad) but everything quite soaked in grease (I patted it off with a napkin). Note: the option of sausage or bacon is not... More

Had the very best Chicken Tom Kaa soup. A delightful, myriad of flavors utilizing coconut broth infused with lemon grass, galangal and fresh basil. You HAVE to order it
