Stock Pot is a favorite among locals during lunchtime as well as tourists looking for a flavorful meal on a budget. The menu changes every day and features 6-8 dishes, influenced by Asian, Moroccan, Spanish and Indian cuisines. The great thing about this place is it features vegan, vegetarian and lactose free meals every day (look for VG, V and LF symbols on the menu). Stock Pot foods are often spicy so each dish has a rating 1-10 on how hot it is - take that into consideration when ordering.

A big bowl of soup is 3 Euros and main dishes are around 5 Euros but one can easily eat the half portions offered. For some fresh greens ask for a side salad (80 Euro cents for half portion - enough to top off a main dish). Also, their coconut smoothies are absolutely delicious.

The only downside is air conditioning - after spending some time in the restaurant you leave smelling just like your lunch.

Good to know: It’s open only on weekdays from 11:00-20:30.

I saw this restaurant on trip advisor before coming to Riga, so checked the menu for the best food for us. We went for lunch on our first day and were not disappointed. Two soup starters and two chicken curry dishes for main course, for less than €13. It was all incredibly tasty and the meat was all very tender. It is very spicy, but we like that.

Seating is limited, so keep an eye our for an empty space while you're queuing for your food.

Overall, fantastic value for brilliant food. Highly recommended. We might go again before we leave Riga!

This is a very small and very affordable cafe in the center of Riga. I like its spicy meals, especially during cold and rainy days, and there are both spicy and mild, vegetarian and meat meals. The menu changes very often.
Menu: http://www.stockpot.lv/en/menu/
Pros: Tasty simple food, very low prices, central location.
Cons: Very small dining room, limited business hours (Mon-Fri 11-20:30)
If you hesitate to visit or not, take a look at the picture of the staff on the cafe's site. I will visit again.

Was lucky enough to find stock pot open on last day before holidays. Went due to ta reviews. A bit suprised at line but only waited about 5 minutes. Ordered half a portion of butter chicken (about 3 euros)as i am not such a big guy. It came with basmati rice, fresh coriander and bread and filled me. A bit spicy but so tasty. No suprise the line behind me was just growing and growing
