Where to eat come breakfast and lunchtime in Siem Reap
The Little Red Fox Espresso
Undoubtedly Siem Reap’s coffee king, the Little Red Fox is a hip wee place with portraits of 1960s Cambodian rock’n’rollers by artist Sasha Constable and a single turntable and small vinyl collection belting out tunes from those same musical trailblazers. The food, mainly sourced from local growers, is great, but it’s the coffee that’s the real star of the show here. Run by coffee nuts for coffee nuts, the drinks menu is extensive, though we were particularly blown away by the lemongrass and ginger latte.

Joe to Go
Temple Town’s original spot for a top quality cup o’ joe is still going strong. This cute little place is slap bang in the centre of town and provides a fine option for some R&R after hours spent haggling in Old Market just up the street. Given the name, coffee is the order of the day here, but Joe To Go also serves up excellent café fare with an enjoyably homemade quality. As an added bonus, this is a café with a heart, with all profits going to help the Global Child, a school for former street children.

Sister Srey Café
This sweet little café is one of Siem Reap’s most popular, partly thanks to its wonderful location on the river, but mainly because it turns out consistently good breakfasts and lunchtime snacks. From French toast stuffed with bacon and cream cheese to the toasted pumpkin pide or the signature ‘bowl of goodness’ with homemade falafel and hummus, it’s hard to go wrong with the food menu, while the coffee is also among the best in town.
