“Cheap but very good and fulfilling”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

Buffet-style pancake restaurant in the middle of the old town not far from TGIF.
Cheap & tasty. Very fulfilling.
However the place is a bit small.
How it works? You open the door and immediately you will see the buffet. Take a tray and a plate and grab the pancake(s) you want. Then pay at the cashier - you can order drinks at the cashier.
Last time I was there (Sept 2010), they have hung some translations to help you make out which pancake is with what filling.

“Great pancakes, great price”
Reviewed 18 September 2010

We came across this place during a day tour of Riga. It was slightly intimidating to enter - self-service, no English spoke by staff, and it is not clear what you do after you enter. It's cafeteria style. I found another customer with whom I could communicate and asked her what you do, and she basically told me to take what I wanted, and ask for a drink at the end from the cashier.

We grabbed a couple of meat pancakes and a couple of dessert pancakes, some jam, some sour cream, and a couple of bottles of water. Total price was maybe 5 or 6 dollars US per person. The food was great and we had the feeling we had really stumbled across something special. I think we were the only tourists in there.

Very highly recommended for lunch if you don't want a fancy restaurant meal and you want something the locals enjoy.

“Delicacies at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed 30 August 2010

This nice little restaurant in the heart of the Riga Old town offers everything one can expect from a restaurant that offers pancakes: pancakes, pancakes and pancakes in both sweet and sour flavors. Pancakes cost around 0.6 $/each so the price range is very reasonable.

Only minus is the small size of the restaurant and if a large tourist group decides to pop in, it can get crowded, especially at the counter, where you pick and pay the pancakes.

Highly recommended (you have to like pancakes, though)!
