Good local bakery.

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... read more

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.

We had lunch here 2 days out of 3. The savoury pastries are a bit hard to identify on the counter until you read the ingredients but then you have a choice of 6 or so, cheese, spinach, cabbage/pepper, bacon etc. And of course a fantastic selection of cakes. Coffee and peppermint tea both good too.

Purely went in because it looked so good walking past (not trip advisors' advice). Charming inside with the wooden decor and mill stones. Ordered - two savoury slices (puff pastry with filling) €2.50 each. Mine was cabbage based (tasted like a spring roll), she had spinach. Very nice Coffee She had a cappuccino (warning for coffee lovers - it's a... More

Gorgeous cakes, served by friendly staff! The coffee was lovely as well! This is a lovely little bakery/ cafe in the old town of Riga. It is really well situated and is very welcoming inside. The cakes are excellent value, ranging from 30 cents to €2 for the spectacular patisseries. Definitely worth spending some time in!

We went past by a few times during the weekend and decided to go there for dessert on the last day. The cakes were really good (mine had some black balsam inside along side with nuts, really tasty!) and the drink were good as well. Nice staff.

I've tasted around 10 sweets. For me, the best was one with chocolate and marzipan. Is just wonderful! The sweets aren't too sweets and if you wish, you can take them away with you or just seat and enjoy a coffee or tea with cakes, tarts, strudels, or breads. The staff is really friendly!
