Cafe Haiti is a great place to stop for coffee and snacks or lunch when you wandering around the Old Harbor in Reykjavik. The service is friendly, coffee and pastries were very good and the place is cozy and comfy. Not surprisingly they don't take American Express.

The place is very simple - yet quite colorful, for icelandic taste. The coffee is exceptionally good, the snacks are ok. The look to the Old Harbor is calming.

You could walk past this café and mistake it for a shop. However stop and go in, you wont be disappointed. We visited after we came back from our Whale Watching Trip. It is nice to be in rustic surroundings drinking very smooth coffee. They also do snacks and a selection of home bakes cakes. The owner is extremely friendly.... More

Set away from the main road, this is a peaceful cafe that offers coffee and cake at a reasonable price.

Wow the coffee in Iceland is good all round, but the coffee here nails it! Oh and the cakes are good too. Will be visiting again.

This place was recommended by our local landlord. The atmosphere was good but the coffee was not really special

Found this fine little place whilst walking back from Saga Museum when it was cold and snowing. Good coffee and delicious apple and caramel cake with cream. If it had been nearer lunch time we would have eaten there. Nice atmosphere.

Description
Cafe Haiti is a small cafe by Reykjavik's Old harbor. We buy our coffee from farmers in Haiti. We roast the coffee in the shop and serve quality coffee as espresso, macciato, cappuccino, latte, Arabic and Turkish coffee as well as tea and hot chocolate. Soups, pies and croissants as well as our fumes breast so if you are coming from the flight in the morning the stop and see oss for breakfast and we also have good lunch. We also have food to go if you are going on the whale watching. We have sometime live music so be in touch and hope you are in town when we have live music.
