We stopped in here after visiting Blue Lagoon in the morning. C is for Cookie is a cozy little cafe with friendly staff and fast service. The hot chocolate is incredible and a must try. I also had a grilled sandwich, which was just average. Would defiantly go back for the hot chocolate!

I went in for coffee and to study for a bit. after having seen all the nice reviews on here I thought it would be worth my time. Really wasn't. The decor was obviously trying to be quaint or cute but it didn't really work. the furniture was mismatched and not in a nice way, and it just didn't really... More

Stopped in here on our first morning in Reykavik. Excellent location, right opposite our hotel. Staff were friendly and there was a cute atmosphere to the place. We ordered 2 lattes, they were HUGE (not complaining about that!) and delicious. We also had a chocolate brownie, not the best we've had but nice nonetheless. Would recommend during your trip in...

Cute coffee shop that offers very reasonably priced breakfast items (ham, cheese, toast) and very good coffee. Warm, comfortable. Great service.

Let's get something straight up front: Yes, this is a small coffee chop, and YES, it's a bit pricey compared to places in the U.S./Western Europe...but is it expensive compared to other spots in Reykjavik? Absolutely not. I spent 8 nights at Airbnb less than five minutes away and made it a point to have breakfast at C is for... More

This cafe is close to my guesthouse and i went for breakfast one morning. Waiter/barista was nice and the coffee was excellent. I ordered a grilled sandwich with cheese & pesto which was good.
