We visited for lunch, which was really nice. Good selection of sandwiches and pleasant surroundings. Soup was good. Would recommend

Stopped here after a cold and wet whale watching tour. Had two hot chocolates and two open sandwich type dishes that were really lovely and the staff were also really friendly. Only thing that isn't perfect is price - this was our most expensive meal...in Reykjavík, which I suppose is due to the position on the harbour. It was a good visit but I don't think we'd come again just for the fact that there are other equally lovely places for just a bit better value!More

After an amazing whale watching tour we were a bit chilly and in need of a snack and with Rost being just a few steps away it was the obvious choice. We had a Hot Chocolate, a Tea and a slice of (rhubarb) cake to...share which were all good, but now the only negative, it came to £15ish. Which even by Icelands inflated standards seemed steep, but saying that we did return a couple of days later so it clearly didn't put us off. Ignoring the price its a lovely place to rest a while and take in the view.More

I came here every day during my stay in Reykjavik. The coffee and the venue were delightful and I loved to begin my mornings with a cup of mocha and a pastry on one of their super cool chairs. An eclectic, warm, effervescent space to...grab a cup! xxMore

Went here twice during my vacation. It is a little more expensive but food and coffee is good, view is lovely. Had the skyr with berries and cream. Too much for one person but tasty.

Great coffee shop on the Old Harbour - they also do sandwiches and pastries and it's a good stop for breakfast, brunch or lunch if you are taking a trip out of the Old Harbour or returning from one. If you're lucky the owner's cats...might be soaking up the sun on one of the tables outside.More

Lovely vegan toasted sandwich with cheese and spinach accompanied by a little pot of hummus. The oatmilk latte and hot chocolate were delicious. Highly recommended.

Really nice homely and warm coffee shop on the harbour. Cosy place, with lovely view of marina. Great coffee and friendly staff . For Iceland very reasonable prices. It was a great place to warm up after my whale watching tour.
