  • The decoration and atmosphere at Black Magic was super. We has identified this shop as a must visit before we arrived in Riga but, if honest, we thought we would just pop in, taste the local balsam...  more »

  • Former apothecary/pharmacy turned into a cafe. The atmosphere is very cool, reminiscent of old times. This seems to be the place where many people try Black Balsam, though it is served all over town so don't think it is unique to this place. The chocolates they have here and delicious. For two shots of Black Balsam and two truffle chocolates we paid €8 so prices are a little high but not unreasonable. It's worth a visit, even if it feels touristy.
  • The best place to try Black Balsam! This is a really special place where staff are in medieval dress and the history of the shop as a supposed apothecary comes to life! As we were trying balsam for the first time we got the original as well as the cream balsam. The cream was my favourite (like Bailey's) but I think trying the original is a must when visiting Riga! The waiter was funny, friendly and helpful, recommending things on the menu and sharing a few stories about the shop. Really great spot to get the full experience.
