Description: With lightness, noticeable elegance, taste and great quality at affordable prices, La Kanna has become a favourite spot for many throughout the day. During breakfast and lunch, La Kanna holds the dynamic of the city, waking up and taking the first sip of strong morning coffee, and later returning to catch a breath and recharge during the busiest time of the day. But in the evening La Kanna winds down, candles are lit and the scent of wine fills the air. On Saturdays and Sundays La Kanna offers breakfast for those who have slept in, with a welcoming and light brunch. Italian, French and Spanish wines are the basis of the cafe's wine list (and the shelves offering wine for purchase), but the food menu offers pastas, risotto, bruschettas and seasonal dishes, also something a little more Serious. You can watch the cooks of La Kanna working in the open kitchen, which gives the place a democratic feel. This concept allows the guest to choose whether to get served or "help themselves" by consulting the chefs or other members of staff. The warmth and elegance of La Kanna is achieved by mixing a set of restored antique furniture with the clean lines and pleasant wooden tones of the interior, which is complimented by the well thought out lighting and sunlight from the large windows.

“Brunch experience with friends so so...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Went there for brunch with group of friends. I like comparing brunch places in Riga as there are so many choices and I love brunch as a type of meal. Have read some good reviews in social media about the place, but the brunch was so so. Liked the design atmosphere and decoration of the place, very hype with that lovely touch of ''this and that'' feeling. However the staff weren't very friendly as well the brunch food choices were average - cereal, types of bread and salad, some sweet bakery. They also did soup and you could order scrambled eggs with adding of your choice. There was no drinks provided - you can ask for free water, but you have to specifically go and ask bartender (no sign for that also). Overall we liked it and it was ok, but the buffet choice can be definitely improved.
