Description: Sister Srey Cafe is a Social Enterprise, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Run and operated by Sisters Lauren And Cassie. The Girls, opened the business to have "Good Coffee" and also help and support Khmer students and to make a sustainable impact into the community. Our vision at Sister Srey Cafe is to support young Khmer students who struggle to keep a balance between study and supporting their family. Each staff member in trained in hospitality, English language skills, personal development, health and hygiene and banking. We are a stepping stone to a brighter future and a means for them to have skills and knowledge to approach the world empowered and confident. Sister Srey has various incentives and activities in which support the local and rural community. The cafe goes to sustainable measures to help the environment and to be as enviromentally friendly as possible. We are commited to being plastic free, having bio degradable food packaging, organic coffee and miniamising waste. Monthly, our staff participate in our community service program "Helping out a friend" Where each staff member chooses a NGO or project of choice and do something for people less fortunate than themselves. To date we have had, staff building wells and toilets for families, participating in a soup kitchen to feed street children and health workshops. Sister Srey also composts all waste and goes to directly to NGO Green Gecko Farm and has a sustainable recycling program and waste management system. Since opening, the Cafe works along side Hearts to Harmony Foundation. This means 20 percent of profits from the Cafe as well as donations go towards Hearts to Harmony to supports individuals through education, health and hygiene, and supports rural families. Sister Srey is a social enterprise. A cafe with a heart, a cafe with the desire to see change and with the ability to do so.

Incredible Farm to Table Food
Quick Service
Attention to Detail
2 levels: 1st level is right next to the action of the sidewalk and the upper floor has a cute boutique and more lounge type setting with pillows.
Delicious Food. Yummy Coffee. I loved the smiling staff and sisters who were full of positivity and happy to be making a difference in Siem Reap.
It is a place to NOT MISS! Go try any of breakfast items. I went 4 times in the 7 days I was in Siem Reap

“Great smoothie bowl - more vegan options please!”
Reviewed 29 March 2017 via mobile

I had breakfast here on a recent trip to Siem Reap and had a lovely experience.

The smoothie bowl was really tasty and reasonably priced considering how much it would cost in the UK. The service was very friendly and helpful and the cafe has a warm and welcoming atmosphere with great decor and Motown music playing throughout the morning.

I was ever so slightly disappointed by the lack of vegan friendly snacks to takeaway and that soya milk is charged at 40 cents extra (but it is understandable). It would be great to see a vegan cookie or granola bar on the counter in the future... Nevertheless I will still definitely recommend this lovely cafe for it's healthy breakfast options and pots of tea.

“Best coffee in S/East Asia! ”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 via mobile

Simply incredible Melbourne quality coffee. Avocado toast was a blast from home. Such a treat. Latte was perfect. Great vibes, lovely river outlook. What's more is that they support their local workers education and healthcare so by dining here, you're giving back to the community. Treat yourself to a visit here.

Chris B,
What a lovely review to read first thing in the morning!
We are thrilled our little cafe could bring you the feeling of home (more importantly Melbourne!) Our head barista was fortunate enough to learn how to make coffee in Brunswick !
Thank you so much for dropping by, hopefully we will see you again :)
