This cafe was recommended to us by our guide. It had a toilet, nice and clean. Seating inside and out, underneath a canopy. A range of coffee and teas, plus hot chocolate and a great range of pastries, bread and cakes. Not too expensive either.

While in old riga stopped for a latte and torte both were very good, nice sitting area outside. Good place to stop for snack and to relax watching people walk by.

There's a lot of pastry shops about in Riga and this is an excellent one. Loved the cheesecake (and the other pastries). They also serve pretty good coffee.

Hidden between two bars/ restaurants. Great selection of cakes and pastries. Good cappuccino too! There is a terrace with some very aggressive birdlife, so if you are not into birds, sit inside!
