We stopped in during a rainy mid morning walk around old town. The pastry and coffee counter is in the front room and there is a comfortable back room to relax. The pastries were fresh and reasonably priced. There were the traditional varieties of coffee and a hot chocolate which others said was enjoyable. A cappacino and a delicious pasty... More

On a cold rainy day, this was very welcoming. The coffee and hot chocolate were both very good and there was no stinting on the volume. The cakes were also quite large portions and the quality was good.

Came here twice in 3 days. A nice place to drop in and have afternoon cakes and coffee and hot chocolate. Prices were reasonable and the cakes very nice, especially the tortes. Take note that the Latvians seem to like their cottage cheese and it features heavily in many of the cakes. Also, their cakes are not overly sweet compared... More

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...
