This place remains in my top two coffee shops in Reykjavik. The Swiss Mocha remains my favourite anywhere we have been and the cakes, especially chocolate cheesecake is delicious. It is a totally chilled out location, off the main road where you can, quite literally put your feet up and relax. Excellent free Wi-Fi, some quirky decor make this one... More

After searching half of Reykjavik I finally found a cafe that serves decaf coffee ( everywhere looked at me like I had three heads when I asked for it!). Lovely coffee ( a little on the cold side if I'm being fussy) and lovely cakes. Visited twice and sampled the flapjack and the chocolate brownie, the brownie was to die... More

We came here this morning for a quick brekky. Their service was quite quick as we were the only ones in the cafe. We ordered the smoked salmon cream cheese and greens which was a deconstructed sandwich but was quite nice and refreshing. My wife had a egg and salad sandwich, Their salad consists of capsicum tomatoes and other chopped... More
