The first thing that struck us about Kaffitar was the cozy ambiance and the smiling staff - great vibe and very homey decor. We had a Swiss Mocha, Cappuccino, Banana Bread (some of the best I've had), & Croissant. It was all splendid! Definitely recommended

Our breakfast was here every morning. Best value coffee and breakfast sandwiches or croissants or pastries. They roast their own coffee and the baristas work is spot on. I get double shot flat whites and they make them well. Service is professional and pleasant.

So frustrating to keep seeing (on TripAdvisor) that places have gluten-free-friendly options only to find out that while everyone else can have yummy baked goods, we are stuck with slices of brown bread. I've had better coffee in Reykjavik, and significantly better Swiss Mocha. It...More

We stopped at this place because we wanted to taste their summer drink, ice cream, caramel, soft peanut butter and whipped cream. No, it doesn't sound healthy. Yes, it's delicious. It was our holiday so we just wanted to try something special. And this drink...More

Kaffitár is an Icelandic roasterie, specializing in importing, roasting and serving the finest Arabica coffee beans. Apart from the roasterie, the company owns seven coffee stores-espresso bars or cafés. They are located at our roastery in Reykjanesbaer, in Kringlan shopping mall, in Smáralind shopping mall, down town on Bankastraeti, in the Culture house at Hverfisgata, in the National museum and at Höfdatorg. We buy 75% of our coffee directly from the farmers, this we call "from farmer to cup" which means that our buyer, has visited the farm and selected the coffee. Lots of our direct coffee comes from Ricardo Rosales at Jesus Maria in Nicaragua. El Injerto in Gvatemala and Daterra in Brazil are also farms which we buy a lot from. Our experience is that we get better coffees and more consistent quality. Kaffitár also runs it's own Artisan bakery, Kruderí witch specializes in sourdough bread and delicious pastry.
