Cafe Central

Classy for a meal or chill-out

What we say: 3.5 stars

Situated in a classy cream-coloured colonial building on a commanding corner opposite the Old Market, Cafe Central is one of Siem Reap's best all-round choices for quality food and an atmosphere that makes you want to stick around.

Shady terrace seating is available outside while ceiling fans cool the airy inside room with large windows and colourful Rothko-style canvases hanging from on walls of exposed red brick above polished tiled floors.

Throw in an efficient and polite staff, excellent coffee, tea and baked goods, beer, wine, champagne and cocktails, and great chill-out music, and you've got what is arguably Siem Reap's most inviting cafe. An eclectic range of quality food is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Get your day started with a very tasty eggs benadict, stop off mid afternoon for a burger, pizza or panini, or dip into a full course dinner of Khmer spring rolls, bruschetta, Khmer vegetable curry or chicken schnitzel with coconut pumpkin puree.

Dishes start at around $2 for light breakfasts and appetisers and reach over $6 for a filling dinner. If looking for a cheap, no frills meal or something a little more exotic, walk right across the street to the Old Market.
