Riga has many places to eat a simple homemade lunch, but Kruiz is my favorite when I haven’t cooked something for myself.
First reason is the location, it is very central, but still away from the main streets and close to work. The place is cozy, but not fancy. It is real simple, you will not find restaurant food here, but prices are excellent. If you do not want to spend much and do not want to eat fast food – this place is for you.
Unlike most places, which offer you a so called “meal of the day” or “business lunch”, where you can have one kind of soup + one kind of main meal + drink for a special price, Kruiz offers you much more. You can choose from more than 5 types of soups and more than 10 main meals. Choose your favorite combination – you can have vegetarian, meat or fish meal of the day. Pay from € 3.10 to € 3.65 for soup, drink and a main meal. Add just € 0.65 and have a dessert (cacao cream with kissel just like from my childhood).
Yes, and I almost forgot – it is tasty!
Important- entrance is from Ģertrūdes street.
