We stumbled across Stofan's one day as we were walking around and we thought we would go in for a quick lunch. The menu is quite limited but the food is amazing! The paninis with the side salad are fantastic. We loved our food so much and were so taken the coziness of the cafe that we went back again... More

We dropped in here for a coffee just after we arrived. The decor is really quaint love all the odd chairs and sofas. The staff were very helpful and worked as quick as they could the coffee took a while but was well worth the wait.

We had such a wonderful time when we stumbled upon Stofan our first day in Reykjavik we made sure to go back again. It is a quaint old building serving perfect hot drinks, soups and sandwiches. The staff was personable and helpful and the food and ambiance was great. Make sure you stop here for your next trip to Reykjavik.

Stopped by here on my back to my apartment after dinner. Friendly and helpful staff and a great atmosphere. A warm and welcoming place. Enjoyed a slice of apple pie and cappuccino; delicious cake and great coffee.

On arriving in Reykjavik we popped in here for quick snack after journey from London. Lovely building, very friendly staff and delicious food, soup was awesome. Added benefit that as well as coffee they also sold Icelandic beer on tap. As with everything in Iceland it's nit cheap but very tasty and good quality.

This was our first stop after arriving at our hotel in Reykjavik. What a fun little coffee shop! The building is so quaint and full of exposed brick and wood. We ordered croissants with ham & cheese, along with a couple breakfast plates. The hot chocolate was delicious as well! It was a great start to our day and I... More
