Icelandic specialities bear the main church. Had the smoked fish and the rye ice cream. Delicious. They love Loki here and all the other Norse Gods and there is a mural in their honour

Great friendly staff and the rye bread ice cream was all that I had heard it was. Well worth the visit. Excellant extra hot chocolate as well.

I was waiting for my friends to arrive to start our weekend trip and needed some lunch. Walking past the famous Hallgrimskirkja I saw Cafe Loki promising traditional Icelandic food. I popped in and ordered a plate with the rye bread and the fishy toppings....More

Try their Rye Bread Ice Cream = Yummy. Small little cafe with lovely view of the cathedral. Also at the top of the Rainbow Road which is an excellent street to stroll and enjoy a little shopping.
