One of our favorite places in Old Town of Riga. Very tasty and always fresh baking. Many kinds of tea served in old-style small pots. Very nice ambiance, not expansive at all, self service.

Great cakes and pastries in a nice atmosphere. Locals love the place as well, which is always a good indicator. Service alittle on the Soviet side, but otherwise a great experience.

Thank Ontaryo

We were looking for a place to make a short break and we found Rigensis! Simply wonderful atmosphere (seemed to be back at mediaeval time) and tastes! Average prices

One of the finest bakeries if ever visited in my life. The handmade food is extrem delicious, the espresso absolutely fine and the prices are really good. You have to go there. And by the way, the interior is really lovely.

There's a lot of buts in this Rigensis. We arrived on Monday morning to have breakfast. Bread? Only by 11 is available and the one showed in the showcase store is only to promote and show. We know it's Monday morning but you can't have a bad service if you want to have a business in a "Very Typical" area... More 

Thank Ricardo A
