My family visited Riga and this restaurant after seeing its favourable reviews on this site.
We were not disappointed. The Tofu Cauliflower was amazing, one of the best vegetarian/vegan dishes I've ever tasted. My wife and daughter loved their dishes also, especially the falafel burger.

The service was pleasant and attentive. It was also clean, and well priced.

We were in Riga just a couple of days, but went to Fat Pumpkin twice. First to have a delicious lunch; shared antipasti plate and a portobello burger. They were both really good and fresh, and just so you know, the burgers are big. And french fries crispy and good as well.

The other time was on our way to airport. We had a lovely ice cream plate with three different flavours. It was delicious. And of course, it's all vegan there.

Both times we were met by happy staff, and that made the experience so perfect. Kind and friendly service. Nice location in the old town, not in the very busy tourist streets. Nice little terrace, where the sun shines all day long.

And something to remember: they only accept cash. There is an atm pretty close, and they kindly let us order first and then go get the money.

Strong recommendation!

We stumbled across the Fat Pumpkin whilst exploring Riga and looking for diñer. As the only vegetarian in the party i was delighted that all agred to try it. No one was disappointed! Excellent burgers tempted me, but I chose "a taste of Latvia".. mushroom and potato balls with mushroom barley "risoto". Lovely. The pudings were wonderful.. i didnt know how famous the snickers cake was but we all had a taste.. fantastic. A great choice and very well priced.

We visited here for lunch .
The restaurant was very quiet for lunchtime, only 1 other table and ourselves and we were here over an hour.
Ordered the chickpea burger which was delicious with hot freshly cooked chips. The burger, bun and garlic sauce were really tasty.
We also had a tapas dish with 3 small quinoa balls on 3 very small pieces of bread. These were very nice but expensive for the €6.50
The detox smoothie at €6.50 was also delicious but expensive.
Staff were attentive and the restaurant is beautiful, bright and clean.
A lovely lunch but a bit pricy. However I’d definitely go back.

Thank Karen M
