Daigas Bakery (Daigas beķereja) is one of my favourite bakery places in Kuldiga. The reason is plain simple - the pastries Daiga and her team is baking here are one of the best in the whole region and I'm not afraid to say - they are among the best in Latvia.
Discovered by accident in the summer of 2014, Daigas Bakery has found its way to my heart instantly. When I'm visiting the town of Kuldīga - Daigas bakery is a must-have. And I mean it!
The bakery is located on Liepājas street 26 in a small courtyard
Inside bakery it's a really tiny though cosy place. There are 2 tables and maximum 8 people can sit around them
Although a sklandrausis is a part of traditional Latvian cuisine I first tried it just a year ago, and indeed it happened at Daigas bakery. It's filling is made from grated carrots. Here is a bit better explanation of what Sklandrausis actually is:
Sklandrausis is a traditional dish in Latvian cuisine which has a Livonian origin, but it is known by Latvians for many years. It is a sweet pie, made of rye dough and filled with potato and carrot paste and seasoned with a caraway. Read: Sklandrausis
I'm not a huge fan of them. But if you are up for trying something authentic try a sklandrausis.
Daigas Bakery indeed is one of my favourite places in Kuldīga, it's budget-friendly, and prices here are really democratic. Best of all - there is a great chance that you will be served by the baker Daiga herself. Enjoy!
