Taka is nice cafe in very trendy Miera Street in Riga. Nicely decorated, very quiet place in early hours to eat lunch or snacks. Large selection of different beers.

My boyfriend and I wandered into the Taka bar at midnight last Saturday to pick up the keys for an airbnb flat we had rented nearby. Unfortunately, our host hadn't dropped them off! The barman went above and beyond to help us, giving us some much needed food and calling around local hostels. The bar has a great atmosphere, and... More

The atmosphere is really nice and cozy. Big variety of craft beers - Latvian and other. We usually take TakaTilla which is tortilla. Super tasty.

This is the place to be in Riga when you want to chat with young, trendy, hipster people, have a nice, cheap drink, and very friendly service (in perfect English). It was also the only almost full bar of the +- 10 that we checked out on a saturday evening!!!

Taka has a great selection of micro brewery beers, both local and imported. Clearly quality is important to them as they only stock beers from the local breweries which actually consistently produce good beer. The affable bartender is also fluent in English. Prices are in line with quality.

I was just looking for a bar/café in this "hipster" capital of Europe Miera Iela, and this was a great value and experience for my expectations. As we entered at 6pm, the barman said they were not serving food, so maybe they only have food at lunch. But the beer he suggested based on my taste was perfect, and exactly... More

I like vintage clothes, not vintage food. Unfortunately, that was exactly what Taka served us: a vintage barley risotto, with all the mold one could expect in fifty years old food. Danish blue cheese? Yes, please. Moldy food? No, thank you. “Pay as you want”, the waiter announced proudly before trying to poison us. “What about minus one cent?”, I... More

The lunch special is 3.50 and includes soup, a main course, desert and tea or coffee. They often have some vegetarian food for dinner as well. The couches are comfortable and the wifi is fast. The staff are also friendly.
