Following Tripadvisor this time did not disappoint - thankfully. Our hotel was just around the corner and we had just arrived at about 3pm and thought afternoon tea - the place was packed to overflowing and if the weather had been kinder we would have sat on the outside tables but we saw it opened until 23.00 so after dinner...

We found this pastry shop quite by accident, but so glad we did. The pastry and selections of coffees were amazing. The choc./hazelnut torte and the apple strudel were baked on the premises and were the best we had in Latvia. It is a quaint shop with many locals enjoying the pastries. They indoor and outdoor seating. I wish we... More

Probably the best boulangerie and patisserie in Riga, with old favourites (Millefeuille, croissant), local adaptations (Sacher) and Latvian sweets.

Seeing that this was one of the place recommended by fellow Tripadvisors, we gave it a try and were quite "chuffed" with this bakery. They offer a good variety of traditional Latvian pastries and is not expensive at all. They also seem to be a favorite of the locals, which is always a good sign! Expect a beautiful interior, but...

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.
