I live by the old harbour in Reykjavík, around the corner from Café Haiti. Since the café opened I have become a regular guest there. At first, it was just for a nice cup of coffee, which then evoloved into going there for the most-important-cup-of-coffee-of-the-day, and now, this is the place I go for appoinments and to have meetings as well. Often I start my day of work at Café Haiti. I take my work with me, have a quiet moment, sort out mails and stuff.
There is something about this place thas is totally unique. The coffee is the best in town, the surroundings are authentic, and the seagull´s squawking remind me of my childhood home. But I think what made me fall for it is the spirit surrounding the couple who run the place. This kind of spirit does not have a name, but passes through the place like a pleasant breeeze, and can be placed somewhere between effortless, brightening presence and bottomless generousity.
