Šefpavārs Vilhelms (Chef Vilhelm in English) has been one of my favorite places since childhood. I remember going there with my family and eating those tasty pancakes, and it makes me happy that this place has been here for ages and hasn’t lost that nice feeling and the special recipe that makes their pancakes so good. The smiling figure of chef Vilhelm makes it impossible to miss this place when walking down Šķūņu street.
This spot offers all kinds of pancakes – plain pancakes, potato pancakes, pancakes with cheese, cottage cheese, meat, apples, bananas, and I’m sure I forgot to mention some. To make the pancakes taste even better, you can add honey, sour cream or various jams. All you have to do is grab a plate, choose your pancakes, add a jam, choose a drink and pay at the counter. Quick and easy!
When I’m here, it’s very easy for me to forget that I’m actually in the center of Old Riga because this place feels very much like home. I blame it on the interior that reminds me of a house in the countryside.
