My favorite place for coffee and sweet treats in Old Town Riga. Difficult to choose from the large array of goodies! Have been there many times and always love the baked goods. You order at the counter. The staff is not very personable.

So much variety and all baked onsite. If you are hungry then this is the place for you to visit. Plenty of seating area inside. It is open early and closes late at night

Visited the cafe after reading reviews here. The place looks nice and is cosy, was not crowded as well. Had a cup of tea and cake form cottage cheese, it was more than 5 euros. There is nice choice of cakes and i will definately visit cafe Rigensis again to try other cakes.

I just love this place. Been here many times and never got disappointed. If you are looking for a nice place to have a good cup of coffee and cake then this is the place for you. All the different cakes I've tried were absolutely delicious.

Rigensis has been a Bakery since 1870 and still has retained some of the original features inside.It is now a coffee shop selling home baked items,very charming and well worth the visit.

One of our favorite places in Old Town of Riga. Very tasty and always fresh baking. Many kinds of tea served in old-style small pots. Very nice ambiance, not expansive at all, self service.

Great cakes and pastries in a nice atmosphere. Locals love the place as well, which is always a good indicator. Service alittle on the Soviet side, but otherwise a great experience.

Thank Ontaryo
