When we travel to a new town, we usually like to visit several different eating establishments, trying a little bit at many places.
Sometimes, however, we find ourselves patronizing the same joint when we like a place enough. There's something comfortable about frequenting a place enough so the staff recognizes you. It makes you feel a bit at home.
In Kampot, Cambodia, Epic Arts Cafe is where we often found ourselves for breakfast. Not only do your dollars get you high quality clean food, they fund an important mission as well.
Epic Arts is one of them. The organization helps provide opportunities for disabled people to work and have a safe spot to hang out. They’re valued and respected individuals in an inclusive society. Epic Arts encourages people to express themselves through art and creativity.
There are also workshops for people to express themselves through art. In the gallery a few doors over, one can find handmade crafts for sale. Individually drawn greeting cards, high quality scarves, and They make for unique souvenirs far superior to keychains and magnets.
The cream cheese and roast vegetable bagel comes with an overload of veggies bursting with flavor. We also ordered the hummus and olive oil bagel, which was served with a fistful of fresh vegetables laden with Kampot pepper. The hummus was delightful as well, a rarity in these of the world.
There are plenty of desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth. We only tried the apple pie, which we would recommend. Make sure to request them to warm it up! We eyed the ice creams and giant cookies, but were too full each time to even consider.
You convinced me. How can I visit the cafe and gallery?
