Visited this place after a recommandation. They have a variety of cakes, the strawberry tart was ok, but a bit dry, maybe yesterdays.. The coffee was good! The interior is really beautiful. The staff okay, not a smile or anything- she just looked angry. Otherwise okay for just one day visit.

A comfy hip place for sweet cakes lovers. They bake their own stuff and you can actually see them working on it. A bit overpriced but worth the visit touristwise.

From all the tales I expected that the place would be a bit like those German cake places where there's a huge variety of different tasty looking cakes, but unfortunately this was not a case. Even that menu has quite a lot of choices you can not see them and in my case this was what I expected. Even that... More

When we walked in they must have been baking some chocolate cake because there was a really good smell in the whole cafeteria. We ordered salad and it was okay.. I ordered a Caesar salad and I think I had only three tiny bits on chicken. But it was cheap so maybe I shouldn't expect anything else. The interior was... More

We were looking for a nice last coffee to finish our stay in the beautiful city of Riga and, by chance, found Kukotava café. Nice interior, helpful staff and a smell to die for. In the end, the coffee was fine but the honey cake was superb! We start with a slice to share and ended up going for seconds... More

Very nice! A lot of sweet delicious cakes, deserts, etc. Nice cafe, kind personal, no 1st and 2nd food, only difefrent deserts. Fantastic place to take cup of tea or another drink with some desert, other sweet or cake. Deserts really nice and tasty, no dislikes.

My favorite cakes in Riga! BUT you must remember that this is primary a bakery , the tiny coffee shop has cozy and warm atmosphere mixed with smell of freshly baked cakes, but the service won't be the greatest at all times. This is my only thing I think they should improve. My compliments goes to the most delicious cakes.... More

Great cakes and good atmosphere for a quick coffe. They also have outside tables in summertime (though the street is a bit busy). Good place to round off a lunch had at some other nearby place.

Had Mozzarella & green pesto salad for lunch. The salad consisted of a heap of green leaves, a few slices of chalky mozzarella and some tomatoes. All this was floating in a plenty of brown acidic liquid. It seems that the dressing had already separated into "phases"- liquid and solid. Found a green blob of crudely cut herbs at the... More
