Dining information

There is one canteen in the main university building, it provides hot and cold snacks and drinks, as well as a variety of hot foods, and it is open from Monday till Friday from 9:00 am till 16:00pm. Liepaja’s dining scene offers a little bit of something for everyone. Although casual, inexpensive bistros can be found at nearly any street corner, an ever-increasing number of cozy, interesting restaurants have sprouted up all over town. Eat a pork chop and potatoes for around 4 Euros at a local cafeteria, try the reindeer carpaccio with a glass of cabernet sauvignon in an upmarket restaurant, or order fish and chips at a neighborhood pub. It is important to know that in Latvia the whole concept and meaning of the words Cafeteria (Kafejnīca), Canteen (Ēdnīca), and Restaurant (Restorāns) are different than they would be understood in other countries. A Cafeteria or Kafejnica is not just a coffee shop. Usually, you can have all meals that you would probably expect in a restaurant. The difference is that in Kafejnica sometimes you bring your food to your table yourself. However, some Kafejnicas have waiters, but there is then something in between Kafejnica and Restorans. 

Restorans is usually more or less a top-class place. Ednica is a canteen of schools, universities, factories, etc. They are very cheap but sometimes have limited access.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
