Good place for some tacos, but they lacked key ingredients on a Friday night. But the food tasted good.

It’s close to the coach and train station. I had a ham and onion omelette, it was quite good. The space is not big but it has good atmosphere. Some interesting decorations on the wall :)

Latvian-Mexican fusion cafe! Here you may try a great selection of the Latvian food and Mexican Tacos. And - the cocktails! Classical, Mexican tequilla cocktails & Latvian cocktails from the local balsam and Riga's moonshine. We are small and friendly. Evening - we are probably the best bar in town with live music, magician show, craft beer, wines, and delicious cocktails with a Latvian twist! Waiting for you :-)
