Just as Jeanne d’Arc is considered a heroine of France, cafe Žanna (English: Jeanne) is the epitome of an excellent coffee shop in Riga. In addition, its uncommon location and strict concept underlines the rebellious spirit of the founders and the coffee shop itself.
Impeccably designed and furnished venue. Chalkboard painted walls embody the calm nature of the particular place. Hefty wooden/metal furniture and symmetrically organized lamps draw customers’ attention to detail. Hence, the essential value of the coffee shop is underlined by the importance of tiny peculiarities. “God is in the detail” German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe once said. Tangible (and tasteable!) details such as kind service, impeccable coffee and a variety of beverages, croissants and other pastries are specially tailored to one’s specific wishes. My personal favourite is a cappuccino or wine paired up with a light lunch and a friend’s company.
The location is handy according to hipsters’, artists’ and local yuppies’ preferences. A stone’s throw away Republic of Miera Street (check the article) is located, thus, free-spirited locals are wandering around quite often.
