A lot of Reykjavik's coffeeshops go for that "dark and cosy" vibe. This one is a bit different because it has a lot of windows. The cappuccino is tight here and I remember the vegetable soup being very good too. The prices were average. You have the option to sit outside too and in summer it farces the right way... More

This place is off a main street in Iceland but if you are looking for it, it's not hard to find. A very "locals" place. Not positive but we may have been the only foreigners there on a Saturday morning. Great fresh made bakery items and decent coffee as well. Very comfortable seating arrangements make you feel right at home.

Just off the beaten track of Main Street Reykjavik, this coffee shop come hipster joint serves good coffee, friendly staff and a chocolate cake in a pot that is divine.  Definitely worth seeking out on a wet cold afternoon.

We found this cafe while hiking up the hill to get back to our flat. Best latte ever!! We also had their American brownie. Both were great and the young man who helped us, also helped had us in the correct direction to get back to the flat. They had some delicious choices in their case, but I was trying... More

Very nice people here. The person running the register and making coffee was very nice and engaging. We had coffee and a latte and both were good. The real star was the pastry we ordered, some apple crumb thing and it was AWESOME. They make all the pastries in-house. Check this place out.

The title might sound a bit harsh as the staff was really friendly and the coffee delicious, but I wasn't quite convinced with the way the baristas organize their shift. To be fair the place was packed when we visited on Easter, but the people in the shift were clearly overwhelmed with the orders. No clear transparency as to whom... More

Sandwiches or soups with good quality bread. Tons of great choice for sweet treats like cookies, brownies and cakes. Very nice staff also.
