Old town Riga modest setting with a cozy and intimate ambiance. Welcomed with a delicious shot of Riga Balsam mixed with coke and a dash of lemon- I know because I asked the unfriendly waitress that seemed too cool to be bothered ( not sure...if it’s from language barrier, culture differences or pure oblivion). Food portions are small for the price- considering it’s not fine dinning. Flavours are okay but need a pinch of love. Overall staff and experience need a dose of passion and finesse! Potential experiential spot.More

A lovely, quiet little bar with good wine and meals. We only had a few drinks and pizza but really enjoyed our visit. Would recommend.

Incredible slow service, bad prepared food and inattentive staff. A classic tourist trap just outside the old city of Riga.

After a long walk in Riga we ended up at Amber Coffee and got great service and coffee. Staff has a great service mindset.

We just dropped in for a quick lunch. The food was quite OK but one of the waitresses seemed to have a bad day and behaved rather grumpy. Not a smile nor a friendly word. She has a lot to learn from the staff at...the Kempinski hotel just across the street. She have to learn that people return to a restaurant as much because of the atmosphere as for the quality of the food.More

Had two lovely meals here, as well as morning coffee. I stayed close by. Staff very welcoming and remembered what I’d had previously. Food very reasonably priced. Would definitely eat here again.

Stopped in here for a late lunch, prior to taking the Free Tour of Riga. Husband’s cod dish was very nice and my grilled chicken with mixed veggies also quite good. A good dining option if you find yourself in this area.

We came in here starving and jet-lagged after a long flight from South America and what we got were not great coffee drinks and greasy Latvian style diner food. Even my kids were not particularly happy with their food and they had only just basic...pasta dishes. There are plenty of much better choices within steps of this coffee shop.More

We visited on a cool wet day and it was so nice and welcoming. Waitresses were very attentive and took our orders very quickly. I had the cottage cheese pancakes and a ladies crimean coffee. Husband had pancakes stuffed with apple and an ordinary coffee....The food was delicious and plentiful. My only criticism was the crimean coffee was so sweet especially for an early morning drink, but it looked great. The decor and seating was lovely and comfortable with very easy listening music. A nice meal.More
