I had a simple breakfast and delicious cappuccino and my husband had the soup of the day and homemade bread. Both delicious, simple, unpretentious and appealing. We ate a delicious apple crumble dessert and congratulated ourselves on finding this place! Cozy laid back atmosphere with quality food and coffee.

This was our first stop after 36 hours of travel from the US, so we were ready for a good breakfast and had heard very good things about this place. Our group had 18 people, which maxed out the dining capacity, but fortunately we stopped by during a slow period. The wifi was good, so it's a great stop for... More

I found this place while walking from the main shopping area. I was in need of a coffee and this interesting sign pointed down a side street to this place. Upon entering I found a homey coffee bar offering a range of coffee, teas and pastries. The staff was friendly and they had a variety of seating from bar stools... More

I have been there with my family last week, during our trip in Iceland. Location is very cosy and nice, also cakes were very good (we have a chocolate cake, a carrot cake). Good place to relax having a nice break.

We had to check out of our airbnb early on our last day, which was problematic as we needed Wifi to watch a hurling match on national Irish TV (not because we're at all into sports but because a family member was selected for the team). We read on TripAdvisor that this café had great Wifi, and we're glad we... More

I was tired and a little hungover and couldn't check into my hotel straight away so I headed across the street to C is for Cookie, partly because the gorgeous scents coming from the shop lured me in. Once in I ordered an oatmeal and choc chip cookie and a long black. The lady serving me was super lovely, the... More

I was here for both lunch and dinner while in Reykjavik and both times were fantastic! Our lattes were perfect, I really enjoyed my sandwiches and my cousin liked the soup. The portions were a good size and the atmosphere is very cozy. I especially liked the bookshelf with books to read while you eat if you like. :)

Stopped by for a little afternoon snack - cute little coffee shop with great coffee lattes and cookies. A variety of other baked goods that look tasty as well.

Nice lattes, though a bit cooler than I'm used to. There was an assortment of home baked sweets - the "pancake" was a dense, sweet oatcake that was tasty.
