I first noticed this spot when a few locals posted pictures on their social media raving about this new place that had recently opened in Āgenskalns. I got really excited because Āgenskalns is my neighbourhood, and my excitement grew even bigger when I found out that it was located about 3 minutes away from my home. A great spot that’s next to home? Sounds like a win-win to me!
This spot is seriously amazing. The menu isn’t too big but still has snacks, salads, pastas, burgers, desserts and more. My absolute favourites are the burgers but I can assure you that everything on the menu is worth trying. It is clear that the owner really cares about the quality of everything and the opinions of customers so don’t be surprised when he comes up and asks for your honest thoughts on the food and drinks. It’s a nice opportunity to chat about the spot as well.
Last but definitely not least, the interior is great. Brick walls, hanging light bulbs and overall “cozy meets hispter” create a great atmosphere for anything from coffee dates and lunch breaks to after-work dinner and drinks, or anything else. However, making a reservation before a weekend evening visit might be a smart idea as the spot tends to be busy.
Needless to say, I’m extremely happy that there’s such a great spot so close to my house. Another reason to go out instead of staying in!
