The story behind the Brown Coffee success is pretty impressive. Having been to many of the Brown Coffee locations in town I have to say that their coffee is constantly excellent and their food very reliable. This is a great place to watch people both expats and locals while enjoying reliable wifi and AC. Customer service is outstanding.

This review is for Brown 57, the sister cafe nearby. It came highly recommended by friends and we weren't disappointed. A nice coffee oasis with great brews.

Have to say this place served the best coffee i have had, not just in Cambodia, but anywhere. Also delicious cakes (30% off as it was getting late in the day). Prices are not local....but the location is fabulous, airconditioned, nice decor, english speaking staff, stunning bathroom facilities.

We have tried them now in Siem Reap & Phnom Penh. Both places were good & the coffee was the same. Obviously working to a standardized process, which works well. Both places had lots of staff. Coffee is reasonably priced.

Stopped here twice - one takeaway and one sit down. Relaxing - good staff and the very best coffee - they have a number of cafes around town - worth stopping at.

I am not sure of this is the branch I visited but Browns is a small stylish chain selling good quality coffee/tea and cakes etc in a relaxed and comfortable environment. It is everything that costa and starbucks could be yet fail to achieve - you feel like a valued customer not a commodity.

I needed somewhere to take a break after visiting the S 21 prison. An iced coffee, a local English paper, a comfortable chair and cool air-conditioning - just what I needed to reflect on the horrors of the prison. Friendly staff and great coffee.

Brown's has coffee that would be acceptable by aficionados anywhere. That cannot really be said about every seller in town. Plus it has that kind of standard upscale décor that people in the West are used to. The lighting is usually natural or a bit low at night and the clientele are well-dressed locals or expats (in the funky clothes... More

There are loads of Brown cafes throughout the city. The herb baked eggs were delicious and great value. Drinks are overpriced but tasty. Easy and reliable.
