Good coffee, not too pricey

For us, this had a great location directly opposite our hotel. We ate here twice at breakfast, the soup of the day was very filling, and on the other occasion had ham and eggs with toast. Generally, I would say that this is a good value place to stop and grab a light bite. It doesn't open... read more

We were there quite a few times and it was just great. Very pleasant atmosphere, both the coffee and the food were great (sandwiches, the apple pie is a must!, and of course the cookies). The waiters were very nice and the music was cool as well. Don't hesitate when in Reykjavik!

The place is very nice and the athmosphere is really peasant but the coffee is one of the worst we tasted in iceland.

I was suggested to come to this place to try the carrot cake. The bar is really warm and inviting. Not only they serve cakes, but also prepare soups and other dishes. After having enjoyed the carrot cake - really good, abundant, but maybe a bit too sugary - I stayed in my super comfy chair for an extra hour,... More

The most cozy and relaxing cafè we visited in Reykjavik. The cheesecake is delicious! Very cute furniture and books. Nice staff.

Nothing special about the cookies, but the meals that others were eating looked great. Also has an espresso machine. Hidden down a side street, so keep an eye out for it.

Here you find all you need for a brunch. A little stop or a lazy morning, here you find good coffee, cookies and sandwiches for example.

C is for Cookie is nothing so special, comparing to other coffee places in Reykjavik, but it is still very nice and cozy and warm apple pie with whipped cream is certainly worth of a trying.

Who needs Starbucks? This place has great coffee and pastries with an Icelandic accent. Besides, the people are nice. Go here for espresso, a pastry, and cookies for the kids.

The soups, sandwiches, and pastries were excellent, and the staff could not have been nicer. when one of our soups was too salty, they insisted on giving us the nicest sandwich on the menu to take with us.
