Baristas of the world, unite!
These days seems like everyone is into coffee and every cafe claims to have the best one, but it would be just fair to say that these guys did it before it was … cool? One of the first places in Riga to sell the Italian Illy coffee which they still proudly use, Innocent is a bit off the main cafe area what makes it even a more special find. Caffeine is taken seriously here, baristas are well trained and participate in local competitions every year and get training abroad, considering new competition arriving every year, these guys know better than to rest on their laurels.
Besides lattes and espressos they do food, lots of it. Brunch every morning until 12:00 on weekdays and until 17:00 on the weekend seem to be very popular and a la carte later in the day, you’ll find sandwiches and salads, but we of course suggest to stop messing around and go for the burger and rosemary laced chips. A must visit place for anyone who believe in the power of the all-mighty coffee bean.
