Cheap and tasty food and coffee in Siem Reap

Given that Siem Reap is highly tourist oriented place, a number of cafes and restaurants closed down during COVID times. However, there are a number of nice places still remaining or newly opening.

Keep in mind that all of these places cater to tourists, as anything in Siem Reap, so don’t be disappointed with that. They are great places to try out.

Cheap restaurants to try in Siem Reap

Food in Cambodia is quite cheap, even compared to its neighbours, for instance, Thailand. In Siem Reap, a very touristy city, you could eat well for 5 USD per person. Of course, this does not include the expensive restaurants, especially the ones on Pub street.

Here is the list of relatively cheaper and good places:

Try Me Restaurant – First of all, I will start with our favourate. We loved everything about it – the vibe, the prices, the very tasty food and a welcoming service. We tried a few dishes, mainly the ones with rice. Do go here, it won’t disappoint you.


My Little Cafe

Madam Moch Khmer Restaurant

Monsoon Asia Fusion bistro – This restaurant is more on the expensive side. The food was good, but pricier than other places on this list.

Coffee in Siem Reap

Below I am listing the best, but not extremely cheap cafes to go for coffee in Siem Reap. Most of these cafes also offer food, so do check them out, even when you are hungry.

Brown Coffee – a big and modern café with air conditioning, which may be a breathe of air after a long day at Angkor 🙂 The coffee and cakes are very tasty, although the prices are not that low. I do suggest the opera cake.


Footprint cafes – this one is on the other side of the river. It’s a very cute café with an amazing concept of helping local communities. It has a great atmosphere with a lot of books. The service is also wonderful.


Brother Bong café – another cafe on the other side of the river. It has nice vibes and good coffee.

Sister Srey Café

Gelato Lab – on the Pub Street for nice ice-cream 🙂


The Little Red Fox Espresso Cafe

Bayon Pastry School

The Source Cafe
