Great selection and good prices

Absolutely good quality on all the cakes. Won't be disappointed! Just don't mind the staff, they look sad, bored and dull like most Latvians

It is almost surreal how much the servers can be unfriendly unpleasant and with this incredible amount of hate towards you. Specially if you think the prices are adjusted to tourists and not locals. A pity. The place is cosy and the products are good but this level of rudeness is not acceptable. There are plenty of good places in... More

We stopped here for snack. Pastries weren't expensive but I think tea was over 3 euros. Well, it was a whole pot and enough for two or even three. It tasted good, also. Notice that staff can't speak english very well. We also got a little bit upset when we saw young waitresses walking across the street to have cigarettes.... More

I've been to this place many times as I have an extended stay in Riga. They are one of the few coffee and pastry shops open late or else I may have picked a choice with less attitude. It has almost become my mission to massively inconvenience one particular server that absolutely hates her existence. Ordering coffee is especially annoying... More

There are quite a few multinational coffee chains in Riga as well as elsewhere. We were looking for something more local and found Rigensis. We had coffee and some local cakes. Really nice and not very expensive.

The sweets are just great. I got two right away, with a coffee and a coke zero. Finished them quite fast as they were delicious. I got another one (though they ran out of coke zero). The last one was not my style, but still good. Highly recommended: fruit cackes, mille-feuille. As other users complained, the lady selling the cookies... More

They have wonderful pastries and cakes, but the staff is absolutely terrible. A couple of not so happy looking girls who hate all the customers. They insulted my wife and I for taking too long to order, due to quickly browsing their selection. Such a shame. Not worth the experience.

The cake And the price are not bad. The waitress at the cashier serves really fast, but their facial expression makes me feel that I owe them a million dollars. The cleaner cleans quickly, but she tried to clean up our table even we had not finished. I won't advise any of my friend to have such kind of experience.

Stopped here while in Latvia. First, I am not really a pastry eater, but as bakeries go, this was very good. Great cafe area, coffee was very good. We enjoyed the cheesecake, the pastry with pork inside and the pastry with cheese on top. My favorite was the pie that was a cottage cheese with cherries. It wasn't as sweet,... More
