Dear Silja, I think the chocolate shop you did visit was in Aspazijas st. Tripadviser has a mistake in address and they doesn't change to the real address. We don't have a guy with blond hair , and was this place called Rienzi ?

Try the Sokolades-Siera Kraukskiga Kuka. Amazing! The coffe is realy good and the service from the english-speaking and polite Diana was above standard.

Love this place for its great seats. You can enjoy your coffee, meanwhile looking in the window, seeing how live goes there, outside the building. They have a great variety of chocolates and truffles, so try them for sure.

Great coffe with handmade, one of a kind sweets. The cakes are a bomb. (tried the caramel one, with cinnamon apples and Greek nuts) had a food orgasm.

If you want to take some nice local chocolate truffles, don't forget to visit Emils Gustavs located at Blaumana Street (I like this one th emost). Nice and calm atmosphere, huge variety of deliciousness and not that many people.

So much potential but slow service, no menus or explanations on what can be had and how. No English information and considering how many staff it just felt very disorganised. Hot chocolate was almost cold. Place looks great but can tell that as there are...More
