Good coffee and croissants (deliciouuus!). The staff is always nice, even if it is early morning. They are always smiling, especially one girl that's at the store downtown. Cozy place to sit or to have take away!

The smell from outside of Coffee enticed us inside! We enjoyed a leisurely stop off here for a Latte and Lactose free hot chocolate. Both were delicious. If you would like a good quality coffee and a warm place to rest, here it is.

Nicely decorated coffee place in the heart of Reykjavik. We really enjoyed the espresso, the cappuccino and the cinnamon bun! It is kind of pricey,though, especially at the food.
