A fantastic place for a freshly cooked meal, and all proceeds support the local community and the disabled. I highly recommend the greasy bread that is cocked on site everyday.

Starfish is an NGO dedicated to helping people with disabilities through their cafe, store and training programs. It is located on a side street in a very pleasant setting.

This bakery and cafe supports/does charitable work as well. They have a wide range of handicraft for sale at their shop. They also have a decent menu which is decently priced and the food is filling.

Amazing that could taste the delicious and special breakfast from special community, really enjoy that place. Old building and the ambiance like in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

It's a very nice place to chill and have a good juice or coffe. The pastries are delicious. We had the cinnamon roll and the apple pie, both very good. The atmosphere is very relaxed. If you're in Sihanoukville its definitely worth a visit.

Starfish is a cafe, bakery and fair trade craft shop run by locals with disabilities. As well as being an oasis where you can relax in the garden and have a coffee and a bite to eat, Starfish is also the oldest non-profit NGO in Sihanoukville. All the profits from the bakery/cafe/shop go to supporting local Khmer people in rural areas by providing housing, sanitation, medical and educational programs.
