If your into bakeries, then the Rigenisis is the place to go when your in Riga. We loved the place so much we went there and had coffee and cake for three mornings in a row. Everything is so fresh, and the tantalising smells you get on walking through the door are so strong it draws you in without hesitation...... More

Lovely little cafe in central Riga offering a great selection fo hot drink and cakes, biscuits etc. Great for an alternative place to stop at night after a walk around old town as open till late, at least 11pm

It's impossible to find in Riga ( and definitely not only there!) the place with better pie, pastry, cake, coffe, bread and atmosphere. And this inexpressible smell of fresh bakery and coffee... Traditional, hospitable, absolutely the best. Favorite forever !

We came for a savoury afternoon snack. The little pastries with bacon inside (piradzins I think they are called!) were awesome. Coffee was nice too. Perfect mid afternoon snack.

This place is good for it's pastry, they try to be a bit like a French boulangerie. Atmosphere there is a bit disappointing - they should change chairs and play some nice music, then it would be a really good place. This place is good if you search where to have your morning coffee.

My favorite little cozy place in Old Riga. Try it out! They have unbelievably delicious cakes, pastry, baked goodies and coffee of course. One of my favorite - cherry strudel!

A large choice of pastries and cakes in a cosy cafe. Service does not come with a smile but the ladies were not rude. Definitely worth a visit.

Best Napoleon ever! The pastry in this place melts in your mouth. We had the Napoleon, cherry strudel, and a baked apple in pastry with cinnamon and raisins! Great place to drop in for coffee or tea or a wonderful brunch or snack. All self serve. They deserve the usual long line of patrons snaking out the door.

I spent three days in Riga, and visited this place 4 times, it's that good! They make excellent coffee, and have many cookies and cakes to try, I liked them all! You can also buy bread and bagels to take away. The staff was OK, they answered all my questions about the ingredients of each cake I tried.

4 days in Riga, can't count how many times we have returned to try another amazing piece of cake. Coffee is good, the only bitter pill is the staff. Unfriendly is an understatement, but what the heck, the cakes are worth it!
