This is a small, cafeteria style restaurant in the middle of old Rīga. Their specialty is pancakes, by which they mean the thin, eggy ones, like crepes. You can get them with various things wrapped inside, from meat to mushrooms to bananas; or, you can get a plain one and put some jam or other stuff in it. Prices are... More

As many other reviewers said, this is "the" place for pancakes (obs: they are crepes). I had just arrived from the US this morning, through Copenhaggen, and was starving. Didn't know where to go (definitely not pizza, definitely not McDonalds, definitely not TGIF, plus it is Monday). Stumbled on "pankukas" and thought to myself: this may be something weird -... More

This place is very cheap and low key but ,in my opinion, serves the best pancakes in the city. There is a selection of flavours to please everyone. My favourite : pancakes with cheese and my husband likes flat pancakes with apples. This place stayed 'a local knowledge' for some time and I guess it's time to share :-)

Prices are very low in comparison to other places in Old town. Good choice of pancakes, some other options as well - soup and salad. Atmosphere, in my opinion, has actually improved from when we were there like 6 months ago, or maybe it was the fact that this time it was not as full, and we got a better... More

This place is great, the prices are excellent and the locals use it so it has to be good. Went December 2013 and came upon it by chance after a recommendation. On a short weekend break we went back 3 times. Enjoy

If you walk around in the old town, Sefpavars Vilhelms is a good choice for having rest. Prices are very low. There are several pancake options. Taste of pancakes are not the best but good for prices. This place is not suitable for main course but one can come for snacks. It is also a good alternative for a short... More

Limited choice at this self-service café/restaurant; basically a few different types of pancake. But all the ones we tried were delicious. Also, do try the mixed salad, which although looking unappetizing tastes good. Considering that it's right in the centre of the Old Town, it's also pretty cheap and fairly easy to get a table. Queues can be long at... More

Most of the pancakes were very good, except minced meat one, could not eat that one. Otherwise food was very good, took different pancakes and soup. Prices were great. Not much atmosphere. Staff very uninterested in customers. Only good points for - food (most of it), and prices, also location.

Having read the great reviews and loving pancakes, we had to try here. We visited at about 8.00 PM on a Wednesday night in early September. There were a few other tables occupied and a couple of people queuing in front of us. This is a self service establishment, so we served ourselves a few different savoury pancakes and a... More

It is always hard to find somewhere to eat in the old cities in Northern Europe: the restaurants are often overpriced and the food not always good. Thus, this pancake restaurant is a good solution It is very cheap: I had seven different pancakes for about 4 euros. Luckily, there are signs in English.You have pancakes with mushrooms, cheese, meat... More
