“Mmmm well”
Review of Black Magic

Black Magic
Ranked #2 of 36 Dessert in Riga
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Very nicely decorated in the mid evil style. Waiters also dressed accordingly. Must say it is probably the most expensive cappuccino I had in Riga, but it was definitely worth the visit. Look out for the hidden doorway, and do go all the way down with the stairs. The waiters, on the day we visited, was helpful and friendly, and also was very patient in explaining the whole Riga Balzam story. The atmosphere is like nowhere else in Riga!

Tacky tourist trap where you can get over-priced, average tasting
coffee, chocolate, and desserts. Staff border on being rude.
There are much better cafes for coffee & desert.

The bar focuses on all brands of the famous Rigas Balsams and home-made chocolate. A small place with a museum in the cellar, where children may scream when a 'ghost' rattles his chains and makes some noise behind a wall. You can see a kitchen where they make chocolate and choose some exotic sweets to have with coffee.
