I really want to like this American run place since they seem to look after a good cause. The wifi is good so it's ok to work here, the drip coffee is not bad. However, the staff are extremely absent minded and forget about everything. Food and beverages are extremely overpriced for Siem Reap. Certainly kept in mind the otherwise... More

I love this place! The food was great and the AC was cool. I had a funky monkey milkshake, fries, and a ham and cheese sandwich. The mission behind the cafe is inspiring! I highly recommend it!

Came in looking for good food and drinks. Seim Reap can get VERY hot, so a good smoothie was in order. It's a place owned by a charitable group called People For Care and Learning. Food and drink was much better than expected. Nice to know money goes to help local kids. Came three times during my stay. Will come... More

An NGO cafe MUST visit when u are in Siem Reap. Support a cause. This outlet supports the US-registered NGO People for Care & Learning, which has a number of projects within Cambodia. Away from the heat and dust, good place to have local delights with modern amenities.

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. 😜
