This is just to confirm that this is the best place to buy certain types of local pastry in Riga. Examples are "vecriga" and "орешки со сгущенкой". Try ,"balta dāma" - OMG! Very friendly and quiet place. Nice visitors.

We've been to Riga 5 times and on some occassions have visited Gustavs Adolfs multiple times. The place is very simple and unpretentious but the food is fantastic and the price is a bargain.

This place got unique location: there no restaraunts nearby, there is a tram station, heavy traffic road nearby and mass of people passing by this place especially during the summer and autumn. What possibly could be wrong? Lets start with a name: Adolfs? Really? With all the respect name should bring some positive thoughts, should be welcoming and tempting. Exterior:... More
