Many different books, also for the English-speaking population. It is divided into two floors, however when we visited around 7 pm, they were closing upstairs and that was unexpected since the closing time was supposed to be 9 pm. It has a great little cafe...More

As well as selling a good selection of English, Russian books and, of course, Latvian books, there are lots of quirky gifts, stationery heaven as well as a nice cafe. A great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
