I had read about this cafe before but we just ended up in there for lunch by accident, which was just as well since it was a lovely experience. The interior is full of wonderful things to look at, an in general the atmosphere was very peaceful and friendly. You order at the bar, we got burgers with fries. I... More

We had their get smart burgers with bacon here. I have to say it was rather disappointing. Fries were very average and the burger itself was nothing special. The meat and sauce was nice, but there was something off with the bun, it was not crispy or I don't even know, but something just made it taste not very good.... More

Went here twice during our week in Riga, in August 2013. We love places with kitschy 60's interior, which this place certainly have. Very, cool retro decor. Staff very nice and friendly and great indie music in the speakers. We did not eat, only had drinks. They had a good selections of drinks, for incredibly good prices. The "adult milkshakes"... More

Get Smart has one of the best burgers in town; cooked medium with all the trimmings for ls2.80. Very pleasant service and contrary to another review, a spotless toilet in the middle of the lunch rush. The kitchen is open until 22:00, so it's a good choice for a bite to eat later in the evening.

Just enjoyed great and tasteful brunch at this cozy cafe. A nice place to visit with the family on a Saturday morning, when the Friday's entertainment consequences are still felt as a sore head. Food was tasty but the main accent here's placed on the atmosphere and service. Be sure - I'll be back!

The inside smells. Food is cheap but nothing special. Atmosphere is ok. If the toilet were cleaned more frequently, the place would smell better.

The "Get Smart Café" is a new restaurant very nice, furnished in an original way, run by young and nice guys. Beautiful Helga prepares great sandwiches and delicious homemade soups. Good cocktails, good prices. Strongly recommended! :-)
