Description: Fresh Eats Café was founded in 2007 by Homeland NGO to help Cambodian children from disadvantaged backgrounds gain an education and learn skills for future employment. Outside of school hours the children come to the café to learn hospitality skills and English. During the course of the day we train up to six children during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our goal is to provide the children with skills that will offer the opportunity for future employment in the hospitality business. In addition to the hospitality skills learnt at the café, the children are also taught weaving, sewing and traditional dance. The products displayed at Fresh Eats Café are made by the children in care at the weaving centre run by Homeland NGO. All the funds raised go directly to the children's education and sustainability of the activity.

I understand that this place is an NGO run to assist AIDS orphans and train them in hospitality so I wanted to support them and like this place.

Unfortunately the service is terrible. Unlike virtually every other cafe I've been to in Cambodia where you are greeted warmly, in this place there is not a smile to be seen and they are utterly disinterested. I was the only customer there so it's not like they were busy.

Food is reasonable - average quality and average price for the region.

Thank Kerry C

If they are training for hospitality business I would sack the trainer. Disinterested staff and late food. The food was nice but not hot when it arrived. And I was the only customer

After a busy day we decided to have a light dinner here. They offer some amazing salads and also some incredible French fries (I swear they are made daily from potatoes). Also the fruit shakes are incredible.

This is a great place to unwind after a long day in Battambang.

Sandwiches were ok, nice baguettes but plastic cheese and the steak was pretty chewy ($4 for steak sandwich). Hash browns and eggs were good!
Service pretty on par with the rest of Cambodia (non existent) but it apparently supports a good cause.

Its a nice place to take a break from the heat and get a fresh fruit shake. Every time I am in Battambang I come here numerous time because its has good food and our service has always been good.
