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!

What a great little place with a good ethos and really friendly staff and other diners. Food was good and decent portions, coffee was excellent . Overall one of the nicest places I have visited here in Siem Reap. Well worth a visit!

They have really great smoothies with balanced fresh flavors. The staff are very nice and quick. I also love their cause. I also bought a very nice necklace in the cafe to support the cause.

Came upon Common Grounds when the breakfast restaurant I had planned to eat at was inexplicably closed. It was so good that we came back again the next day! Great coffee, refreshing slushies, delicious quiches and omelettes, and the best pumpkin muffins that my mother or I have ever had! Service was also great, and the prices reasonable. Highly recommend.

Been spending a lot of time in Siem Reap the past three years, staying at U-Dara Inn, across the street from Common Grounds, and for some reason had never tried it, preferring to venture farther afield. Went today and found it a pleasant surprise. The shop is a roomy two-level facility nicely decorated and featuring excellent wi-fi and air con,... More

Came here after reading all the positive reviews on tripadvisor, but was sorely disappointed. While the service was friendly and efficient the coffee and food was not. My flat white was weak and milky and the mocha was super sweet. We ordered from the asian menu and the 3 dishes were not good, left without finishing any of the dishes.... More

Their smoothies are awesome and refreshing on a hot day! Best we had anywhere. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Some of the best wifi speeds around. A lot of expats and westerners. A socially conscious place that sells items in support of good causes and employs Cambodians for English and business skill development. Our large group agrees - 5... More

We were walking around in extreme heat, feeling tired after a long flight from Perth, and happened to find this little oasis. The air con and fab coffee was indeed a life saver. Staff were welcoming and we enjoyed our visit.
