Double Coffee in Riga, Latvia
Riga, Latvia is a surprise to me, particularly its coffee scene. While walking along the unsaturated streets of Riga on a lazy weekend afternoon, I stumbled upon this casual yet aristocratic looking coffee house. Double Coffee, with its overcooked donut like logo, was founded in 2002 and is pretty international, since it has a total of 15 locations in Riga alone, and it also has several coffee shops based in Azerbaijan, Belarus, China, Estonia, Lithuania, and Ukraine. It has also won Best Trader in Riga, Latvia, and dubbed as the Best Restaurant Franchise in Latvia, with more than 17 MILLION visitors. Needless to say, it wouldn’t hurt to add to that number and spend one afternoon here as a traveler, right? Yes, that’s what I thought too.

As soon as I entered this woody-hipster espresso cappuccino bar, I felt at home right away. I could smell the delicious Java and joe drinks ordered by the group, who were nice millennial locals curiously staring at an Asian traveler (ie. me). Too hungry from all the walking, I waited for my buddies to sit down with me and order their food choices – sandwiches, breakfast food, and all the delicious eastern and western European foods. Everything looked appetizing, not because we were hungry like a wild animal, but because the food presented on the glossy magazine-like menu was so mouthwatering.

They are all about decent coffee. Good thing they spoke good English and they understood our Asian accent, because they got all our orders right, even on the smallest of details – iced coffee, hot coffee, double shots, less milk, and what have you. The food, also, was very tasty, presented on huge plates with big servings for sharing. The attentive staffs were courteous and so friendly (which I heard is uncommon in Riga) enough in recommending all the delicious specials, even if they weren’t flagged as specials on their menu.

Ended up spending a few hours here just enjoying the food and the vibe of the place, not worrying too much on where we needed to go afterwards, since it’s a few steps away from the historic center and a famous national monument. If I am okay to guess, perhaps this place’s their pioneer coffee house? For me, it’s always the oldest, the grandest, the busiest, or in this case – the best vibe? Okay, I hope my guess is correct, because this branch of the Double Coffee gives that distinctive atmosphere worthy of being called a winning place. So yes, do yourself a favor and add a few more counts to that 17 million and drop by at this place.
