Things to do in Cesis
As mostly a savoury bakery with a modest hot food menu, Retro provides simple Latvian countryside dishes in the middle of Cesis, as a preferable fast-food alternative to eating from the supermarket if pressed for time. There was a small queue when we arrived, but the elder lady serving at the till took orders pretty quickly, especially as they were mostly simple pastry snacks with meat or cheese. My girlfriend took one of those, and liked it though mentioned it was nothing too special, whilst I decided to wait a few minutes for a pork karbonade.It was evidently prepared in advance then heated in a microwave, as it took only a few minutes to be done, and it was given to me in a polystyrene box with no takeaway cutlery available. We would have eaten in, but were pressed for time, so I ended up having to eat it with my hands. Not so easy, as it was hot and greasy, and the batter mostly came off due to this. The meat wasn't seasoned with anything, but it was only around 2 Euro or so for the meat. Like I mentioned, simple countryside food; nothing special, but a pleasant little bakery.

My girlfriend and I made a snowy daytrip up to Cesis from Riga back in January, in the heart of Latvijan winter weather. After getting off the train and a brisk 10-or-so minute walk through the ankle-deep snow, our first stop was lunch in Aroma Cafe. Her mother had recommended this place to us, as she visits Cesis infrequently and usually makes this place her lunch stop as well. It's more a traditional "cafe" cafe, than a Riga kafejnica which doubles as a bar. They had no daily special dishes, which is unusual for a cafe in Latvija, but a sizeable regular main menu that consisted mostly of the usual meat dishes with potato and salad side options. Prices were reasonable, normal Latvijan lunch menu fare.I settled for one of the marinaded pork dishes, whilst my girlfriend went for a chicken mushroom dish if I remember correctly. The cafe was not particularly busy when we ordered, and it arrived relatively soonish - after maybe a fifteen minute wait which we spent warming up with some delicious homemade gluhwein. The dishes were sizeable when they arrived, but it was noticeable that around 70% of the plate was made up by the pretty enormous salad. It was tasty, but the biggest thing on the plate by far. The side dip was good enough, but basic; it wouldn't be too hard for them to make better. My side of mashed potatoes was delicious, and my girlfriend's fried potatoes were also well done.As for the main meat part of the dishes, I think my girlfriend enjoyed hers more than I enjoyed mine. She had nothing but good things to say about her dish, but then she had been there before (and is native Latvian so knows the dishes better). My pork was too fatty - at least half the dish was made up of fat, with the rest of the meat being still tasty, even though there was not much there. I know Latvijans usually seem to like their meat really fatty, but for me it ruins the dish. So perhaps this was just a bad order on my half. I would happily go back, but order something different next time.

Good pizza slow service. I had to wait for someone to appear behind counter. Then for second drinks another wait for someone to appear. Easy going good place to meet and chat.
Sushi take-away with sushi made-to-order in general, Asian grocery shelf for small shopping spree. "Tayo Sushi" offers Korean chef Sky's take on sushi and philosphy of it with 10 year experience that starts from japanese sushi chef in Denmark. We suggest
Whenever I come to Cesis I look forward to eating sushi from this place. They are head and shoulders above any sushi place in Latvia, simply by not putting cream cheese in every sushi and by offering different sushi's time and time again. Their products always taste fresh and you can feel that they are made with care. Prices are very reasonable as well.The only "issue" is that they are a take-away place, so you cannot enjoy the food on the premises, but it still tastes fantastic, even when eaten from plastic trays. Definitely would recommend to have some sushi at this place, even if for a small bite. Trust me - you will be back for more.

After many years, we had a date with wife :) Priede was our choice, and it was good. I would not say it was something super exciting or unique, just a good restaurant for dinner. Food was good, location is perfect (very central), atmosphere is relaxed. Prices are rather high. I would come back, but would check other options in CÄsis beforehand.
Didn't have some things on the menu, but the taste, atmosphere and the dish size made up for it! Reccomend!
