Great coffe with handmade, one of a kind sweets. The cakes are a bomb. (tried the caramel one, with cinnamon apples and Greek nuts) had a food orgasm.

A lovely place and really easy to find. We only tried the truffles which were really good but everything, including the truffles, is pretty expensive there, especially compared to other cafes in Riga Old Town.

Absolutely love their hot chocolate. Was expecting some cocoa in milk when we first ordered but we received literally melted chocolate in a small cup and a glass of water to wash it down afterwards. Such bliss! Truffles are lovely too and my sister even insists I bring some home every time I go back. Would highly recommend the Passionfruit... More

If you want to take some nice local chocolate truffles, don't forget to visit Emils Gustavs located at Blaumana Street (I like this one th emost). Nice and calm atmosphere, huge variety of deliciousness and not that many people.

So much potential but slow service, no menus or explanations on what can be had and how. No English information and considering how many staff it just felt very disorganised. Hot chocolate was almost cold. Place looks great but can tell that as there are no responses to other people's comments the owners aren't that bothered.

One of the best places in Riga to have some hot chocolate as it's really hard to find a good place in Riga. Would also recommend to buy some chocolate souvenirs - it's handmade and very beautiful.

Beautifully decorated with pretty items in soft, warm tones, Emil Gustavs is a nice place to hang out at for a break while walking around in the more modern part of Riga. The fresh chocolates are yummy and the chocolate cake was quite nice. The hot cacao was pretty normal though - they had ran out of the proper hot... More

A nice, small and cozy Latvian Chocolate cafe to get a wide selection of chocolates for souvenirs to take away and also to enjoy a cup of coffee.
