If I had to translate Kūkotava into English, I would call it Cakery. This is a lovely spot in the center of Riga that bakes delicious cakes that can make each day better with something tasty and sweet. It is a very cozy place with a fantastic scent of freshly baked goodies. I like to watch the experienced bakers doing what they do best while enjoying a piece of cake that was made by them just moments ago.
Cakes, tarts, sweet and salty pastries, macaroons, sweets, cookies… Their menu is big, and everyone can find something that will satisfy their taste buds there. The secret of the delicious treats is that everything is made with skilled and experienced hands and only quality ingredients are used.
This place is great not only for celebrating a special day with a tasty cake and a good coffee, but also for eating breakfast and lunch since they offer various salads as well. Their drink menu is rich as well – home-made Limoncello liqueur and mulled wine, wine, port wine, sparkling wine and others that go exceptionally well together with the cakes.
So whenever you crave something sweet, Kūkotava is the place to go. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
