The place is quite hard to find if looking for a sign "Latvian Heroes" as on top of the doorway there is a sign "Authors Cafe". The place is small and super cosy. The waiter was nice and the atmosphere was lovely.

Stopped here to take a break from walking all morning and loved it. Food was great, the music/atmosphere was awesome and the drinks were on point as well. Stayed for a couple of hours- cool spot.

I went before a trip to the opera and was glad. The staff were very friendly and engaging. The tacos are delicious, as was my black currant and vodka!

Perfect place to stay in the old city. By the way, I met there very kind people from around the globe and I had an opportunity to know a little bit more about other cultures having my lunch.

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 :-)
