At long last, after so many 'à la française' cafeterieas, Riga has earned the real, authentic one. The chef and owner Julia Balicka has studied at champion du monde des metiers du dessert Olivier Bajard, also at Nicolas Bussen, Sebastien Odet and Angelo Musa, meaning that top French pâtisseries would go for broke to get her. But enough praising. Words will mean nothing, when you try tarte au citron, millefeuille, eclair or macaron melting-fresh and gently crafted on spot. Indulge yourself into the 'sky-haute-confectionary'! Also available to-order.
