Robert`s Books is for people with hungry minds and open hearts. In a sense it is the place of Doing.

Born in a dynamic multi-cultural community it extols the values of knowledge grounded in deep understanding, dignity in thought and deed, as well as an integrated attitude towards culture and the arts.

This narrative is brought into reality by a second hand English bookshop, festive happenings and wide range of eclectic cultural projects.

  • This place is just amazing. It’s not your typical run of the mill bookstore but a place where you can explore and find hidden treasures. There is also a café/bar where you can have good coffee and excellent cider. Very lovely staff that made me feel super welcomed. Special thanks to Olia whom gave me further recommendations for great places and things to do during my time in Riga. Really made my time in Latvia so much more special 💛 If you’re a lover of good books and great atmosphere, I can really recommend this place.
  • I had a very unpleasant experience at Robert's Books today, and I would like to understand why. At about 16.00 we entered the shop/cafe with the intention to have a cup of coffee and browse through the shelves for some books. There was nobody at the bar, but there was a young lady sitting at a table drinking something. I could not understand why she looked at us angrily. We looked at the menu and decided what we wanted. Then, to our surprise, the lady stood up with a look “I don't want to serve you“ rolling her eyes and said "yes?" with such intonation that I felt insulted. No "hello", no "good afternoon", no "what would you like" and no smile. 😱 Very rude and utterly appalling! I have never experienced anything like this before. How can this place afford employees like this young arrogant lady who rolls her eyes and purses her lips addressing the customers! Obviously, you have lost a customer who has previously bought books and has had coffee at your place. I really wanted to show my husband a nice place for a coffee, but, alas, we had a huge disappointment. It is surprising that customers who are ready to spend money are not welcome at your place.
