Brown Coffee was the cafe I visited most in Siem Reap as it has pretty much everything you’d want at a cafe, including.
- Large dininding/seating area
- Good prices
- Good quality food and great variety
- Great coffee
That’s not to say it has the best of all of the above, but it’s good to know when going to cafe it’s gonna tick all the boxes for what you might want or need. I actually did a bit of write up on this place already in my blog post – Best Restaurant, Bars and Cafe’s in Siem Reap .
Brown Coffee has two crafes in Siem Reap:
- One called “Brown Coffee (Roastery)” which is what this post will be mainly about
- and another called “Bron Coffee (Treeline)” – which sits along the river and probably has better views, however I found there was a much better food menu at the Roastery branch.
In the day, you could easily miss this place, as it’s basically hidden in a jungle…well…mini jungle anyway. This jungle type outdoor area really ads to the vibe and ambiance of the place, as it sits on a busy corner, but with the vines and trees all growing around and over it, it closes it off a little and makes it feel a little more private. It also make for a great outdoor dining/sitting area – very realxing. You don’t feel too closed in by all of this greenery either, the place has Hug full height windows for walls – so there’s a llot of room for light to enter as well.
The Roastery branch is the bigger of the two, although only have a single floor (the other branch has two floors), it’s a HUGE space, and you’ve got a few areas to choose from. The main entrance area with couch type seating and low tables…more an area to sit back and chill out. A room off to the left as you enter, which has good size tables and chairs seating four people per table, and these more like dining chairs so probably better for eating or setting up your notebook. Then another main area (at the back of the ordering counter) which is the largets area and has a mix of couch type seating and dinig tables and chairs. Everything is well space out, so your table isn’t banging up again the table to you.
The outdoor area is nice and relaxing as well – as mentioned above – it’s quite relaxing with all the greenery around.
The menu has a great selection of drinks available, including all my favourite coffees (Cappucino, Latte, Americano), smoothies and other sweet drinks. The smoothies were delicious, fresha nd quite filling. I thought I’d try the Blueberry smoothie before ordering my main meal, but by the time I’d finished my smoothie, I wasn’t feeling that hungry so ended sharing my main dish with my partner.
The coffee is right up there! I wouldn’t say the best Siem Reap, but I’d give it an 8 outta 10.
I tried the coffee at both of the branches, and that was one thing that was the same. I probably had over 20 coffee’s between the two branches, so I visited here quite a bit. I also tried a few other meals here as well, all from the Roastery Branch though, including.
Roast Salmon on Avacodo and Bread
OK, as writing down those points I thought there was a few more hahaha, but that’s it – but I think I ordered the Eggs Benedict a number of times,was just too delicious!
The Roastery Branch still had a great selection of food, and it all looked delicious, but more afternoon food me. You should check out their menu anyway, the Treeline branch menu is online – you can view it here. But like I said, the Roastery branch has a different menu, and it’s not online, so I can’t share it with you sorry.
What were the main things you liked about the place?
- They open early, at 6:30am
- It had everything. I’d probably say one of the best breakfasts in Siem Reap, but everything else was really good as well, including food, smoothies, coffee and prices.
- Ambiance – The layout and design of the place. I loved the jungle feel and greenery all around the place
- The Eggs Benedict! One of the best Eggs Benedict I’ve had – and tried two versions here, the “mini” eggs benedict, and the normal eggs benedict, both were delicious and well priced.
- Prices – again not the cheapest – but it’s not always about beeing the cheapest for me…it’s about value for money (getting what you pay for). I felt I got more than what I paid for here every time, great service, and REALLY good food. Price for food here is VERY cheap in my opinion.
What are the prices like?
Coffee is on par with most other places around Siem Reap – $2.25 from memory, so not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either, and it’s really good quality coffee too. The food is amazing cheap for the quality and portions you get – I paid around $3.50 for my eggs benedict and I left feeling well full.
