Best Restaurants for Brunch in Siem Reap
“Brunch is always a good idea.”
When I live in Siem Reap, brunch is a top choice for weekly dates with friends. I love it not only because of good vibes and food, but also the quality time.
As you know, Siem Reap is a tourist city. People around the world come to here for traveling, and also part of them, for business. So you can find tons of different restaurants. Italian, Mexico, Turkey, Indian, Chinese, Swiss, Germany, Thai and etc…
For brunch, there are various choices too, let me show you some top western-style brunch places.
Best Vibes with Amazing Pancakes: Khema
Khema is a French-style café-restaurant. Comparing to temples, villages and red dirt, you might wonder whether you are still in Cambodia when sitting there. Nice decoration, quiet, clean and white table cloth, the flowers on the table makes everything beautiful.
In Khema, they serve both western and local fine food for the full day, and they have their own bakery. When I go there, I usually choose the free-flow breakfast for brunch. The price of each dish is not cheap, comparing to the local Khmer food, around $4, but it’s still reasonable for a decent restaurant.
With free-flow breakfast, you can order as much as you can in the breakfast menu by paying a set of money. They have the best pancakes in the town and their fresh orange juice rocks. The average cost per person is around $12.00 including the service fee.
If you have enough time to spend there, free-flow is a choice for enjoying different food and drinks. The time for free flow breakfast:
- Mon – Fri: 6:30am – 11am,
- Sat – Sun: 6:30am – 3pm.
If you are looking for a decent restaurant with affordable prices in Siem Reap, this will be the top choice.
Best Waffle in Siem Reap: The Missing Socks Laundry Cafe
Laundry cafe, it sounds interesting. Right, that’s a place where you can do laundry and have a good cup of cafe. The more interesting thing is they have the best waffle in the town! Who doesn’t like waffles?
Missing Socks doesn’t have a big place, actually I can say it’s quite small. There are only 3 places to sit with around 10 chairs if I didn’t remember wrong. While that doesn’t matter if you love waffles! In their menu, they have many different sets for waffles, with eggs, bacon, fruits, ice cream. They even have waffles burger.
One thing I will complain about is the cooking smell comes out from their kitchen. If they can improve this, it would be awesome!
Fifty5 Cafe is located in a busy place, Pub Street. You can find it easily when you walk there. I still remember the first time I went there was not for any food or cafe, but for ice cream. They have great gelato ice cream! While Fifty5 Cafe is also a nice place for food.
Fifty5 has 2 floors with nice decoration, comfortable for sitting and tasty food. They also have some open spaces to enjoy the time. I really like the big space and atmosphere around.
If you are an English breakfast lover, you will definitely love here. I tried eggs benedict, and toast there and it’s really good! They don’t offer free water, so you will need to order drinks if you want to drink.
Sister Srey Cafe
Sister Srey Cafe is close to the night market, by Siem Reap river in the town. They have a very good cafe and authentic dessert. It’s quite famous among expats in Siem Reap. You can find many seats are already taken in the early morning.
The portion is big and the taste is also good. Many of my friends love pancakes here. The decoration of the shop is nice, environment-friendly. Many things in the shop are made in really creative ways. I remember they put honey in the light bulb, which looks nice.
It’s now allowed to park in front of their shop. So if you drive a motor there, you have to find the parking place on another side of the road.
These are some of the great places that you can enjoy brunch. I will update the list when I explore more.
