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

This is a great cafe/restaurant that makes awesome coffee for those that are coffee lovers!.. and not the American style watered down Starbucks version either!.. nice aromatic, smooth, creamy Italian style barista coffee. The food is awesome, hearty and delicious! I ate breakfast and had coffee here everyday of my trip!.. and the funds raised go to helping Cambodia!

Came by upon recommendation of our tuk tuk driver as we wanted some coffee. Unpretentious cosy little cafe with a good cause. Price is like all places of similar standing in this town. Coffee was abit light for my liking but the molten lava cake was fabulous. If you can overlook the light coffee this is not a bad place... More

Food mediocre to say the least but what is the most annoying thing about this place is the smug christian atmosphere. One would imagine that a good christian place like this would have some healthy food on the menu but hard to find. Dont think I will be going again.

Visited here twice during our stay in Siem Reap. Didn't have a whole lot of vegetarian options but the food that we did have was delicious, especially the black bean burger and the banana muffin. Friendly staff, and they have a computer which is free to customers which was very convenient. Would recommend!
