First Review by FraukeFerber

disappointing taste - Edit

After all the great reviews we were really looking forward to eating at this place. Unfortunately all our food didn't taste good. Maybe we made the wrong choices, but f. ex. the 'eggplant caviar' consisted mainly of raw onions and Bell pepper and we didn't like it at all. They were really accommodating, offering ud to make a new one and even charged less for it, which we found very generous, so no complaints here!
But the menue sounded so great and mouthwatering, that we were just really dissappointed about the actual taste.

Pros: many options

Cons: not tasty

simple things - Edit

The simple things in life are not quite free but the falafel plate I had was abundant, delicious and good value— I’m not a bean counter, pardon the pun

The fruit plate comprising in season fruits was divine

Recommended and cruelty free

Pros: food, location, well fed cats slumbering nearby

Cons: closed on Wednesday therefore felt like vegan fugi

Delicious - Edit

Went there for breakfast and had both vegan meals (oat meal and tempeh). Very friendly waiter and delicious food. The coffee was great as well. Would go there again.

lovely food and great customer service - Edit

At first I thought it was expensive (the average meal $4-5) then I realised it came with free ants.
I promptly informed them I had an insect or two on mine and my burger and chips was taken away. I sat and watched enviously as my girlfriend devoured her antless food.
They quickly replaced mine with a fresh antless hot burger with a very large portion of chips. When I asked for the bill they gave me the whole meal for free despite it being a minor inconvenience.
The things on toast looked really good and il be having some of that next time.
A pot of lime, tumeric, ginger and honey tea was a really good choice.
The place was clean, chilled, friendly and the food really good. I'd highly recommend it.

Pros: good food , good custormer service , cats and card games

Amazing! - Edit

Huge portions of healthy, fresh food. Really reasonably priced especially considering the size. Really tasty food and a nice atmosphere too. They also do yoga classes although I’m unfortunately not staying in Kampot long enough to try one, but I’ll be back for breakfast tomorrow!

GEEEEEZ! This was gooooood! - Edit

Took a short TukTuk from out of town to here, was very easy to find and it seems the drivers know about this place( maybe due to its awesomeness?!)

The food... OH MY GOSH. Amazing! I had an espresso, a FULL POWER smoothie and the Tempeh on toast. Granted I probably didn’t need to consum all of this (and of my girlfriends Avocado on Toast) but it was soooo delicious, all of it 😀

We came for breakfast and plan on returning for dinner ( lunch will be skipped due to exsessive consumption level)

A MUST MUST MUST visit if in the area.

Pros: Yum , Vibe, Menu variety

Cons: Touch pricey

Lots of vegan options - Edit

Plenty of vegan options, good service despite being packed and very hearty portions. We ordered the pitta and dips to start (amazing salsa and lovely soft, warm pitta), the spaghetti with creamy pepper sauce and the lentils with oyster mushrooms and broccolini. We also had the mango cheesecake. All were super delicious as was the ginger and lemongrass tea (you can maybe sub the honey for brown sugar to veganise).

Pros: good vegan options

WOW - Edit

This is the best restaurant in all of South Eat Asia. I stayed in Kamont for 2 weeks and nearly ate every meal on this menu. Every time leaving so full I could barley walk. The portions are HUGE and delicious. The price might seem high, but it is so cheap for the amount of food you get. The place itself is so cheerful, calming, and perfect. They have games and books if you want to relax for awhile and they also offer yoga in the morning!

Pros: everything!, portion size, so tasty

Lots of delicious vegan options - Edit

During our stay in kampot we went here three times because we absolutely loved the food. Tired of Stir Fried rice with vegetables we enjoyed the varied western kitchen. We tried three pasta dishes, the falaffels, a lentils dish, the tempeh sandwich, the raw cheesecake and the limeade. Everything was really delicious and vegan!
One of the founders gave us restaurant recommendations for Vietnam that we will definitely check out.
Furthermore you get as much drinking water as you need for free.
The dishes vary between 3 to 6 Dollars which isn't cheap but the portions are fulfilling so you don't have to order 2 of them like in the majority of the vegetarian restaurants we have been to.

Pros: vegan options marked, big portions , friendly staff

Very nice - Edit

Very nice place with good interiour and comfy outside seating. Lovely staff. Try the sandwich with tempeh, smoothie was also very good. The only thing is that they should inform that some ingredients are not available or be more cautious in the kitchen: veg curry with chickpeas had no chickpeas (was also overcooked and lacking spices), lebanese salad with coriander had no coriander and should have more herbs or at least some lime juice, bbq sauce was just a ketchup.

Pros: Big portions, Staff, Nicely arranged

Cons: Ingredients missing

Miss the place! - Edit

This restaurant is just amazing! The food is always fresh and delicious (I visited the place 20 times at least). The guys who run the restaurant are very friendly. So I definitely recommend visiting Simple Things for breakfast, dinner or just a cup of coffee! You won't regret it :))

Pros: Great food, Fantastic owners, Relaxing music

Cons: Did't notice

Tasty, imaginative food - Edit

This restaurant, which also has a yoga studio upstairs, has a great vibe. Friendly service, good background music on the stereo, and the food doesn't disappoint!

It goes well beyond the usual veg suspects, veg fried rice etc, offering a range of creative and delicious choices. The mozzarella eggs are a great breakfast choice. The barbecue tempeh was very flavoursome.

I highly recommend.

Pros: flavoursome food, nice atmosphere

good atmosphere- nice food - Edit

Second time I've been in simple things. The cafe looks really nice. The food is good but not awesome (curry and spaghetti, hummus, raw "cheesecake"). Good amount of vegan options. Would be better if they served brown rice as well (not white).

Mouth-watering! - Edit

I've visited the restaurant several times during my stay in Kampot and really enjoyed my time there. After traveling in Asia for a few weeks I became a bit tired of Asian food and the Simple Things menu was like fresh air for me.

I liked everything I tried there, but my favorites were tempeh scramble and pasta with chilli and garlic. Simple ingredients, but the dishes were delicious!

The staff is very friendly. They will kindly answer all your questions about the food or local attractions.
