MiiT

Sometimes all that is needed for the job to be done is a sturdy table and a good cup of coffee. If that’s the case, then look no further than MiiT – this speciality coffee place is an old favourite among the young professionals. There’s large wooden communal tables perfect for laptops and laptop-free tables for those that wish to socialize. The air is relaxed and warm, the lunch deal (soup + the main for 6eur) is superb, thus it can get a bit rowdy during the lunch hours.

National Library of Latvia

Quiet, calm, and full of light, the place intended for poring over literature is a perfect to get on with tasks that demand strong focus. Come here as a visitor or register as a reader and use the services provided by the library. As in every public building there are rules you need to follow – it is not allowed to enter reading rooms with bags and outdoor clothes – there are designated lockers where to place them, and, of course, the level of noise need to be kept low. But the stunning view of the Old Town ekes out the inconveniences.
