Sooo cosy! Loved it! Comfortable arm chairs and colorful interior. I ate the best cheesecake I have ever tried so far! The staff was really friendly, too. Definitely can recommend this place for a break while walking through Reykjavik.

Love this little coffee shop! It was one of the ONLY places I could find soy milk. The coffee and cappuccino is excellent. The cookies, toast and eggs are all yummy as well. The owner is so sweet and the staff is nice & friendly. Once we found this cute place, we were there every morning before starting our adventures!

This is a quaint cafe off the Main Street of the church, that serves very reasonably priced and delicious food. I had their green pea soup for ISK 990, good deal after paying ISK 2,000 for soup all week ok Iceland. They also provide free wifi & water flavored with cucumber or lemon. Lovely place for a break.

C is one of my favourite cafés in town. They prepare really good coffee and delicious desserts and the atmosphere of the place is like being in your grandma's living room. When there, one should definitely visit the bathroom and be ready for a surprise ;).

Small and cosy sat in the armchairs near shelves of books and magazines. Menu available but went for the berry pie served warm all the cakes were homemade and looked tempting. Latte served in a big cup but should have been served a lot hotter. Service was quick and friendly.

C is for Cookie is a cute little coffee shop in Reykjavik. The mocha is the best mocha I have ever had anywhere. I am leaving Rekjavik today, but want to stop there before I leave town for one more mocha!

Good location, cozy place, a neighborhood hangout, basic coffee, basic service, a bit more than basic prices, and the pastries and such are a bit less than basic.

Thank OlafurE
