“Great cafe”
Review of Footprint Cafes

Footprint Cafes
Ranked #2 of 42 Coffee & Tea in Siem Reap
Price range: US$ 1 - US$ 4
Description: Footprint is a new, locally run social enterprise cafe. A home away from home, we offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks with a wide selection of international, vegan, vegetarian and Cambodian dishes all locally sourced. Every Tuesday we host a vegan BBQ from 6:30pm. We believe high quality food comes from having the freshest and best ingredients, that’s why our Head Chef, Sophal, goes to the market every morning to select our ingredients personally. Footprint’s drinks menu offers a delicious selection of freshly made smoothies, juices, teas and of course coffee. Our coffee is crafted by a Cambodian employee owned roaster who make a regional bespoke blend for us mixing Cambodian, Thai and Vietnamese beans. The resulting roast has a strong, full bodied taste that is popular with coffee lovers the world over. Our baristas pride themselves on delivering the best flavours from our roast to every cup. Footprint is a social enterprise cafe dedicated to linking a prosperous global tourist industry with prosperous communities. We believe that the vast majority of tourist would like to have a positive impact on the places they visit. That’s why we have created a social enterprise model focused on ‘People, Planet and Profit’. We unashamedly want to make a large profit each year. Such profit is not for personal gain but rather for Siem Reapers to decide how they would like their community to develop. 100% of our net profits are therefore given as grants for educational projects decided by a local committee. We believe in looking after our team by providing them with fair wages, excellent employment conditions, a matched funding saving scheme and investing in their future through training and career progression beyond simply the service industry. We want to look after our planet and do all that we can to reduce, reuse and recycle our waste, as well sourcing locally and ethically. Footprint’s big dream is to become the first global chain of cafes linking tourism to local community empowerment. Tourism is the 4th largest global industry, it accounts for 1 in 11 jobs on the planet and is set to get bigger. Sadly, this does not always go hand in hand with prosperous local communities. We want to establish cafes in towns that have bustling tourist industries but still have pressing social needs. Our customers will be guaranteed the same high quality, friendly service wherever they are, along with a delicious local menu, safe in the knowledge that their spending power is having a positive impact. Footprint Cafes Siem Reap, is the first step in making this dream come true. Footprint is not associated with any faith other than the power of kindness, opportunity and great coffee. We look forward to welcoming you.

We’ve been visiting this cafe after a long walk through the city. The staff is very kind and nice and speaks a good English.
The meal was delicious and the coffee great.

The concept behind footprint coffees is to engage staff on a very faire basis and to support the situation of social projects locally.

Please go there and support the local people working in this cafe and this great concept.

Thanks :)
