Desserts are simply out of this world. Loved the honey cake, not too sweet. The raspberry cake with pistachio filling was amazing.

The cakes are great, but... Theirs has got to be the most expensive coffee in town. No option for lactose intolerant, with the exception or Soya milk which costs extra 1.00 eur, which is way overpriced.

This place has disappointed me several times in the past years and the service does not get any better. The wall behind has a friendly advice to ask any questions about the contents to the staff, but those few times I did, did not turn...out so friendly after all. On first I would get just a personal opinion, whether the ingredient is there or not ("I don't think so"), and my request to kindly check that with staff (standing just behind) seemed to irritate a lot. On top of all irritations, my kind request for a black coffee with cream got turned down with "we don't have a cream" (..when the whole place is full with it in every form..) and proceeds with making his own mind of what I should drink today. Like, really?More

The honey cake is awesome! Also the other cakes and cookies are delicious! The atmosphere was great as well.

Whilst walking past, drawn in by then array of baked products on display, so stopped in for a coffee and sweet treat. Had a slice of the honey cake. It was delicious - up there with the best we tasted on our journey through Latvia....Tried to visit another time on New Years Day, but sadly they were closed, so only one serving of the honey cake to remember our visit by. Can highly recommend - either the honey cake or one of the other variety of quality looking baked products available.More

I never eat inside, because the cafe is not so cozy. But when I am in that area I always pop in and take some desserts home. Honey cake is my favorite so far.

The honey cake is to die for! The pistachio eclairs were good. People seem to love this place. I saw a small dog there as well, so this might be dog friendly cafe.

Hundreds of fresh cookies, muffins and other types of pastries in the center of Riga. The only place we found a queue for the pastry and coffee to go. Tried delicious Christmas cakes and took some paneforte as a souvenir for the family back home....Good coffee, small bar. Highly reccomended.More

Often pop in here for coffee & pastries in the morning before work. It’s cozy and most importantly - very tasty. Kukotava’s desserts have been among my favorites for a long time.
