Sister Srey's a lively little traveller cafe in an airy shophouse on the Siem Reap riverfront.

Owned by two young Australians, one a barista, Sister Srey's improving the town's coffee offerings while supporting young Khmer students with training and other assistance.

Srey means "sister" in Khmer. Pop by for breakfast, lunch and of course, coffee. With good healthy food, juices, coffee and a good vibe, in a handsome colonial era space, Sister Srey may be the most popular cafe in town.

From memory it was the first serious espresso cafe in town when it opened back in 2013. The scene has blossomed since then but Sister Srey's holding its own.

Sister Srey is part of Cambodia's Refill not Landfill programme to reduce plastic waste. You can refill your water container and purchase them too. Curiously, they still sell water in plastic containers.
