I often come to Riga and every time I'm in Riga I go to Sefpavars Vilhelms pancakes and take pancakes with mushrooms and sour-cream. They are so good! It's a great combination of taste and price! Nice place for breakfast or lunch.

This place was recommended to us by our hostel and since I love pancakes we went here one day for breakfast. However, it turned out to be a disappointment. I tried 3 pancakes, one with apple, one with banana and one simple pancake which I covered with marmalade. Neither of the 3 tasted really good and my 2 friends did... More

Meat pancake was inedible... Mushroom was very average. Caramel was bland. Potato salad was the best and that was poor. Not worth the cheap meal... Go for pelmeni if you need cheap.

The most economically delicious and tasty spread of Crepes in Riga. You have to try the Banana and meat pancake and egg soup.

Probably the best restaurant for quick and cheap meals in Riga. The meat-pancakes were a bit weird, but everything else very tasty.

Yummiest meat pancakes ever had ina restaurant. Many jam choices and drinks were cheap. Good valure for money. Very tiny place and sometimes claustrophobic but clean and can watch chefs make pancakes.

In the Old city, definitely worth a lunch or light dinner stop. Fresh potato pancakes, different kinds of blintzes, cold or warm soup and at very modest prices. Self service and AC. RECOMMEND !!!!

So you walk pass this little place and admire the statue outside, thinking mmm let me try. They serve pancakes! Boy oh boy, this is so worth a visit in Riga. I promise you for the price you pay (which very cheap by the way) you can have the best pancakes with different fillings! Meat, creamcheese, caramel, banana......Even the cappuccino... More

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
