The food was just ok, soup was probably the best thing. The service was not great, chai latte was yummy but not hot, seemed overpriced for what it was. Interior is cute. Seems like a good place to work on your computer.

Great coffee with some awesome background music playing.. I had the bagel with ham and cheese which was pretty simple and my wife had the waffles which is served with Nutella.. That was very good.. I recommend the americano coffee as well..

Grateful to find a coffee shop in Reykjavik that serves decaf coffee, and great decaf too. Stofan makes a great flat white. Coffee shop is quaint and cozy and quiet. Service was good and attentive.

This split level coffee house is a delight, with huge armchairs and sofas to just sink into and take a break from a Reykjavik ramble. It’s handily placed just off the Ingólfstorg square if you wander down Austurstræti towards the Old Harbour, at the beginning...More

Eclectic decor, friendly staff, free wi-fi, nice location, and great happy hour prices. I grabbed a glass of wine here on a rainy day and it was the perfect pick-me-up.
