Must "sees" and "do's" in Riga

I'm off to Riga on Saturday 13th March with a friend. We arrive around noon and leave Monday 15th in the evening. Can anyone suggest an itinery to cover most of the interesting sights,restaurants etc ? Not interested in clubs etc. but would maybe like to go for a few drinks/ coffee etc after eating dinner at night. Staying at Hotel Centra..

Hotel Centra is in very good location. It is in the very heart of Old Riga. But! Do not stay all the time in the Old Town! Go and see the Art Nouveau district (Alberta, Antonijas, Elizabetes streets). Go wander through the parks - Vermanes park, park around Congress hall, park besides the National Opera and bastion Hill. In March there may be even sunny - but not warm! - days. Take a bus ride to open-air museum.

Eating out places - self-service Lido chain restaurants with traditional wooden interior, Double Coffee chain places all around town for nice meal and interesting coffee. Expensive, but very good restaurants - Vincents, Melnie Mūki, Rozengrāls. Google the names or search this forum for reviews.

Have a great time in Riga!

Agree with LatvianTraveller. Alberta street is magnificent.

For the restaurants and cafe: Black Cat is a good place (by the Monument of Freedom as far as I remember).

But if you want to try Latvian cuisine then I would definitely advise Lido chain restaurants.
