Charming little cafe/bistro immediately next to the interim home of the National Museum. A couple good daily lunch choices. Coffee and alcoholic options as well. Seating on the ground level as well as a little balcony. Great place with free wifi to hang out when your dogs are tired from all the fascinating museums in Riga.

Index is located close to the Freedom Monument in central Riga. Inside it is spacious, clean and comfortable. Coffee, sandwiches and cakes are of good quality. A very nice stop on a walking tour of Riga.

We liked the location but the coffee was tepid and over priced. Certainly not the best coffee in Riga - there are so many other better choices! The coffee had a strange taste which we atributed to the type of milk being used.

I'll be honest and not judge the food as I never got the chance to taste it. Awful staff and, for no reason, really bad manners. Never experienced something similar before. Had to beg for a look as we entered the place, to beg again for a menu after ten minutes when the place was almost empty and then these... More

INDEXCAFE, Antonijas iela 12. It is a good place to have brunch. It’s a small restaurant a bit outside of central Riga. Area is nice and quiet. We went on a Saturday around 11:00 o’clock and the place was very busy. We were lucky to get a table for 3 persons. This place has a modern atmosphere, service was ok... More

Excellent service combined with excellent food sitting in the window and observing the morning pedestrians - what would anybody possibly want more for a Sunday brunch? We were very positively impressed with Index Café and strongly recommend it for its sense of professionalism and clear willingness to please its customers. And for the super food and the great location in... More

The Index cafe just up from the Freedom monument serves the best coffee in Riga. The Mochas are also extremely good- so much so that we visited multiple times during our stay. Cakes are also amazing!

Longtime casual visitor here. The coffee and bakery is amazing, I would say it's a much more refined taste none of the other coffee shops in Riga have. Sandwiches are a little 'meh' though, a bit bland. It is odd since the Index Cafe sandwiches you can buy in any larger Narvesen taste much better. Too fresh in store, perhaps?... More

This is a great stop for breakfast, coffee, or a snack. Prices are low, there's ample seating, and the service was pretty quick. I
