This is always a "must", as the one place I know in VecRiga where you can get traditional meat filled pancakes, and at a good price.

The place itself is nice and cozy. We dropped by on a blizzardy afternoon, so not many people were around. Pancakes were okay, with sweet or savoury fillings to choose from (albeit somewhat lukewarm as they are not cooked to order), pretty much the same selection as 10+ years ago. You have to pay extra for jam or sour cream.... More

Nice place where to eat some pancakes. Especially in cold winter when snow is snowing outside the windows.

I'd like to start by saying that I don't normally leave bad reviews. I try and sort things out first with owner/manager/staff. We stumbled upon this place whilst out walking around the city. It's self service and whilst I don't speak any latvian, we had no problem making out the choices. The pancakes were ok at best but the ladies... More

My favorites are thin pancakes filled with meat and small pancakes filled with apples. Sour cream and cranberry preserves are the best toppings. Other fruit preserves available! Quick order at the counter. But the help needs customer service training. They converse in Russian with each other and lack interest in helping, answering questions of customers.

This is very cosy place to take some time relax enjoying tasty pancakes (crepes). Offer includes good variety of pancakes with meat, cheese, vegetables, curd and other fillings. But possible also simple pancake without filling at all - I suggest to eat it with sour cream (smetana) and tasty jam offered. Or covered with chocolate. In general it's not a... More

Pankūkas in Latvian means crepes and in this place you can find different kind of crepes sweet and salty, ideal for a fast snack while visiting Riga center. Self service, not too big, very central.

Looked forward to going here as kids love pancakes and I make them good! Joined the queue but pressured by staff to make choices, no indication on trays what the flavours/toppings were, pancakes were not that good, bit greasy. Asked for a coke, daughter opened the can, it was warm, asked for ice and was told there were chilled ones... More

It was that I first time visit Riga, and I read the Sefpavars Vilhelms recommended on web so I chose pancake for dinner there. The selection of pancakes was always changing, I ordered sweet jam pancake, salty meat pancake and potato pancakes, and I preference potato pancakes, they are so good! They are not fancy dining but simple also tasty.... More

Such a good place to eat.. V low prices / great value for money (bc the pancakes are so filling) AND good food. Apple pancakes with sour creme and jam was absolutly cracking as were the ricotta pancakes. Could see them being made fresh which also meant that the selection of pancakes was always changing. Sweet/savoury/thick/thin/veg/meat etcetera. I guess if... More
