Few expats have done more to bring a smile to Latvian faces than Bernard Larane. Since the wild 1990's, the Frenchman has served up croissants, baguettes and melt-in-your-mouth pastries, freshly squeezed orange juice and excellent coffee for a reasonable price to grateful citizens and travelers alike.
Bernard has recently opened a new venue in the smallest Art Nouveau building in Riga, a 1903 gem by architect Paul Mandelstam. This flurry of flowers and sunshine is a perfect match for the tasty nibbles inside.
Snack: "Čībiņa" Pastry filled with ricotta and raspberry
Drink: Freshly squeezed juice and a cappuccino
