Pietura Coffee Shop
Photos by : LINDA VESATE
When couple month ago I saw Illy sign put over a reconstruction place nearby my Tram stop, I was very excited for opening of new coffee shop in the neighbourhood. Finally, on a second Saturday of March it opened and surely we went to check the place ! I was keen to show you these pictures straight ahead on the following week but with all this RFW madness and unexpected happenings the post somehow got lost, so I hope it's not too late now !
This is the second Pietura (Stop / Hault) coffee shop in Riga, the first one being located quite a way apart - on Kr. Valdemāra Street but also near a Trolley stop. The place is small and stylish - perfect for a run-in coffee break on a long and busy road. As seen from the sign, it serves variations of Illy coffee with choices of pastries, few cake options, macarons and amazingly tasty vegan cookies. On a salty side there are ham & cheese croissants, salads and even lasagna.
If you are lucky enough, try to catch the best place - table near window and definitely try nuts & dried fruit cookies ! I enjoyed the afternoon coffee peacefully watching people crossing the street hiding by yellow tulips on the window sill.
