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!

If you are looking for homemade bakery this place may do. As an alternative to all beer places around Old Riga, you will find homemade cakes, salty baking and bread. Nothing fancy, quite heavy and rustic but it's authentic. Nice choice of china.

Selected this cafe because of it's attractive window display and décor. Enjoyed the coffee and the cakes but our visit was spoiled by unfriendly and unhelpful staff. The two "young" girls were clearly bored and made it obvious that our presence was an irritation to them. They didn't smile nor look at us when serving and once we sat down... More

A lovely place to stop for a coffee and a baked treat. We had lattes and cookies which were so cheap. 50 cents for two cookies! The bakery grabbed our attention as from the outside it looks so lovely, like an old rustic traditional bakery. This theme continued inside as well. We returned here later in our stay to buy...

Atmosphere of Middle Ages and awesome cakes - you totally should visit this place, it's very cosy and people there are very nice. All cakes are made by Rigensis bakers and they know what they do. Treat yourself =)

Dropped in after walking for a couple of hours. Nice food, possibly a bit dearer than others. Tables away from the street which is good.
