San Jose >Riga European Bakery & Cafe
Riga! I love this place. Had a chance to pick up a selection of items form Riga. The biscotti were devine. the "crumb" was very nice. The brioche was also very pleasing. It had that buttery croissant flavor. Their scones were a great addition to my morning coffee. I had two to share, an apricot and a cranberry. The problem was everyone in the office wanted a piece of what was in the bag. When everyone was done grazing and had left, I pulled out my ace in the hole...the napoleon! And, if you have been going to that other place in the valley for a burnt almond cake, Riga does one too. They come in 4", 6", and 10". Under new ownership for the last 15 months, this little family bakery is putting out some great pasteries using their own family recipes. Give Riga a try.
Excellent European Bakery!.
This was a really great European Bakery, very authentic! Excellent breakfast pastries (try the spinach and feta croissant!) and very good lunch time sandwiches made on their fresh bread. Nice, clean location and very friendly, genuine service.
Starbuck's and Peet's are right next door, so this is my new stop every morning!
User review by chocotiffy. The eclairs and biscotti are just OK here. The creme filling of the eclairs is too sweet and pastry puff, too thick. The owners of the restaurant are very friendly and are good with the customers. They also offer a variety of pastries and sanwiches.
