Comfortable, well-run cafe with a good selection of decently-priced croissants and pastries. They do fresh juices, hot chocolate and creme brule. Good selection of newspapers, magazines and travel books to peruse. Overall, a very good spot!

The place still needs to work on the authenticity of French pastries and coffee, but I love the cozy atmosphere and wide range of newspapers. The place attracts good-looking, smart crowd

I ate in this bakery twice- both times taking their macaroons and sampling a croissant. Both were excellent, deliciously flavored and beautifully textured. The prices aren't over the top, the servers incredibly courteous, and the atmosphere fitting. Real French pastries in the heart of Riga.

At three steps from our B&B, we found this cosy café at Gertrudes 30, where we had our breakfasts during our stay in Riga. We strongly recommend to anyone who likes good coffee, tasty pastries, natural juice and more. They have other locations in Riga.

I've always been fond of French patisseries and Riga's " Cadets de Gascogne" offers pastries of quite good quality. The cafe is quite small, and don't expect a wide range of choice, but pastries are just delicious, no doubt.

Basic food- mainly sandwiches and pastries- but very good quality and goo prices. The salmon sandwich with goat cheese is yummy - Terrace upstairs deserves a visit for a quick lunch

I was really disappointed with this place. You would think that a French patisserie would produce a serviceable croissant, but they are dwarf sized and without flavor. I am not knowledgeable enough to explain the problem, but I know the results. Much better croissants at Junge nearby or even off-the-shelf at Rimi. The cappuccino is also bitter and over priced....

I like going to Cadets de Cascogne because they have a lot of foreign language magazines and books. The croissants, coffee and meringue cookies are also very good.
