Nice Tea House in Tranquil Surroundings!

This is a small tea house in central Riga which is in a tranquil park on the canal bank. It serves coffee, specialist teas and cakes. I visited it whilst waiting for a canal boat. Inexpensive and the waitress service is good. The tranquility is the main feature!

It is located in the city centre but it is surrounded by park and close to the canal that makes this place special.

What a delightful place to sip tea or coffee or wine or beer with a snack. Head for Apsara if your feet are tired sand spirits sagging.

The architecture is simple, yet unique. Large choice of tea, which you can enjoy upstairs, lounging on big pillows while looking at the boats passing by on the canal, or outside, on comfy couches.
