Late Saturday morning and it’s raining, but not a lot. The streets are quiet and people are hiding somewhere or have left city for a weekend in countryside.
My rain jacket is reliable, and so are my wife’s and son’s jackets. Despite the fact there is no sun and the weather is a bit chilly for this time of a year we are enjoying our family walk through Agenskalns. It’s a fantastic place to wander and wonder around.
There is a cute wooden house with welcoming wooden doors. Open it and what a surprise! Fazenda – a cozy cafe that feels more like a lovely Grandma’s house from my childhood memories. With freshly baked cakes and cookies as well as meals cooked from locally grown products, it made my day.
Fazenda was almost full and the folks seemed joyful and happy there. I was pleased to share that feeling and the lemon tart at the end of our lunch almost made me sing in the rain heading back home.
