Description: Warm and cozy place for those, who can spare more than 15 minutes for meal.There won't be any needs for special rituals. A cozy atmosphere, especially home made sweets worth to spent a few extra minutes...The menu is European, You won't find any traditional potato meal or pizzas, no flavor exchanges as well. The meal is prepared when ordering, carefully and with love.Soups, salads, appetizers and daily lunch. Vegetarians, curious experimenters and seekers will find starters, main coursers and desserts for any taste.This is TEA AND COFFEE HOUSE. Separate, original tea and coffee menu, ingenious confections, seasonal offers will cater for particular.A warm summer evening won't last too long while sipping iced tea on the terrace and in the wintertime crackling fireplace and hot ginger tea will warm up every guest...SKONIS IR KVAPAS tea and coffee house was visited by few historical characters. Scenes of movies "Life under Napoleon", "Uncle Adolf", "Forests of the gods" were filmed here. Sharped-eyed will find traces of centuries in the interior. If You are not interested in history convolutions, just pass on greeting to Zacharius - the little boy standing by the entrance.Coffee and tea house has a separate club room with fireplace. Here, upon the agreement, about 20 friends could be invited. Tea from centuries-old samovar and homemade sweets by Ms. Neals recipes - You're friends will like them...

“Beautiful place with a spirit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Complete with old arching walls, dark furniture, oil painting and antique silverware (on display, not in everyday use), it's a very pleasant place for exquisite tea drinking. Not a huge selection of food, but you'll find something if you are hungry. There's also a shop with a great variety of leaf tea to take with you and small sweet souvenirs.

“Cosy place with a fireplace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

This little restaurant has the biggest number of teas and coffees to offer. Food menu is not very expansive, but all is very tasty. They also serve fresh mini buns and herby butter with your meal and they are super tasty. Atmosphere is very cosy, it has a fireplace and nice homie feeling. Its a niceplace just to sit for hours and chat with your friends sipping coffee or tea. Prices are average, not the most expensive but its not cheap as well.

“Cossy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This place is very cossy, nice stuff, a bit expensive. You should come here if you don't like to drink simple Lipton tea and eat some apple pay, because here they have rare types of tea from all over the world, and cakes with various spices. This place is for refined taste.
