Very small but nice cafe where you can taste some local Latvian specialties as salad with sprats. Very fast and good service. Vegetarian friendly. Pets friendly.

Ordered a non alcoholic cocktail - it was priced the same as an alcoholic one...even when it was to a child,sad. And bad,because it wasn't even decorated! Beer was cold and ok,service fast. Uneven Wifi. Dirty dishes not being taken away. Will not go here with a youngster again

One of the best choices in downtown Riga. Good selection of affordable food choices! The pork sausage, cheese stickers and octopus are to die for. Good service but it can get quite busy on weekends.

Dropped in for a cup of coffee and we were pleasantly surprised. Prices are average and at night you can sit here with drinks (local beers), watch people go by and have a lovely meal if you want to. Only downside is that there's only 1 toilet available but the waitresses were all very friendly and quick on their feet.... More

We waited for the waiter about 15 minutes, and our drinks (tea,coffe) about 30 minutes. And there was no menu with allergens. But music was really good. :)

Friendly staff provides smiles, swift service and cold beers. Great for larger groups in the outdoor seating area. Very nice surroundings with the square and the cathedral.

Situated in the middle of the square. Nice place for a quick drink or a cup of coffee while sightseeing the city center.

Right in the heart of old town, this is a lovely restaurant to sit and people watch the crowds going through the square. Unfortunately, the service isn't as great as the atmosphere. It took a long time to get anyone's attention when we wanted to order, or even when we wanted our check. The food was very tasty, but nothing... More

Great place to sit in the sun and have a rest from all that sightseeing. They serve an excellent mojito, cappuccino and local beers all at reasonable prices. The big drawback is that there is only one toilet which must make it difficult on hot sunny days when they are really busy
