I absolutely loved this cafe. It's tucked away in a small street near the church. Look for the sign leading to it. The interior design is lovely and welcoming, a bit like going into someone's home. The staff is friendly and laid back, and it seemed that everyone that walked in (a mix of tourists and hipster locals) took one... More

My husband and I were looking for somewhere affordable where he could use the wifi for a business conference call. The sandwiches were delicious (as are ALL sandwiches in Iceland.) The deserts looked great and then weren't quite as tasty as they looked, but that could just be a matter of taste. The coffee was out of this world and... More

Very friendly. Wi-Fi available. Had a good lunch. Pleasant surroundings. Friendly staff. Not expensive. We'll go again next time we are in Reykjavik.

Tasty cookie, great coffee, adorable cafe! I'm only sad that they were out of their cute tote bags when I was there! A quiet place to sit and wait for our car rental shuttle. I wish we had gone back more

Delicious cookies! This was near the apartment we rented so it was easy to get to, but it's a cute little cafe to hang out at. They have lots of seating options inside or outside, comfy chairs are very popular. The coffee was great and the cookies, sooo very good! They even had a gluten free option for those who... More

I love this place, have come here many times on my holidays to Iceland. Is a really lovely cafe, hot chocolate is so good, and the hot chocolate cake in a pot is amazing ( all their cakes are fantastic though). They also do nice good value breakfasts. One of my favourite cafes in Reykjavik!

Colourful café with friendly staff. We popped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning and the service was very good and the food lovely but best of all the coffee was great.

We stopped for a brownie and hot chocolate while walking the city. Prices were affordable and it was a tasty treat.

We called in for coffee and cookies during a stay in Reykjavik. We can certainly recommend the oatmeal and chocolate cookies. They are very different to the half-baked ones you get in the UK which are heavy. These cookies were extremely light, almost like they had egg whites in them, maybe they did. The latte was also very good.

This little place reminds you of a local bohemian coffee shop with mismatched furniture a random books about art lying around. It is a great place to have a Moka or a Latte while checking out all the shops in downtown Reykjavik. The service was also very friendly, as the young lad behind the counter moved a table from outside... More
