“Great savoury pastries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

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.

“Tasty cakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

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.

“Try it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

My favorite little cozy place in Old Riga. Try it out! They have unbelievably delicious cakes, pastry, baked goodies and coffee of course. One of my favorite - cherry strudel!

“Large choice of cakes :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

A large choice of pastries and cakes in a cosy cafe. Service does not come with a smile but the ladies were not rude. Definitely worth a visit.

“Amazing pastry in old town Riga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Best Napoleon ever! The pastry in this place melts in your mouth. We had the Napoleon, cherry strudel, and a baked apple in pastry with cinnamon and raisins! Great place to drop in for coffee or tea or a wonderful brunch or snack. All self serve. They deserve the usual long line of patrons snaking out the door.
