Great coffee in a good central location. Pleasant seating or take away. Just what you need to warm up on a cold day. Would recommend

Located near Hallgrimskirkja. Very nice coffee shop. I had a cup of coffee and a home-made coffee yogurt -- coffee blended with yogurt topped with peanuts and maple syrup. Was very good. Seating is limited. Afterwards, I stopped at Braud & Co (next door) to...get some pastries for later.More

The coffee was very strong which was good but they were a bit stand-offish when we ordered and didnt have much available in terms of sugar/milk.

Service was pretty slow, and staff wasn’t especially friendly to me or other customers/tourists. The price to size ratio is also a little crazy. I got a latte and the size was smaller than any latte I’d ever gotten, for more than a Starbucks Venti...(not comparing coffee quality here, just the price/size). It was good, but not really a good value. The shop was very cute, though, and there seemed to be a fair number of people camped out there.More

I happened across this coffee shop on my way from Hallgrimskirkja to my accommodation and took a chance on it out of the blue. It looks rather unassuming and forgettable from the outside but it has a relaxed and homely feeling once you step in...the door. The staff are absolutely outstanding, being very friendly, knowledgeable about what they're offering and having an excellent standard of English. There are a variety of seating arrangements for solo travellers or small groups, with the option to sit in comfy chairs or at a more upright workstation with a table. There is a very good variety of coffee on offer and everything that I tried was very high quality. There are also free refills available per drink which is a very nice touch. And the very best thing of all; there is no rushing or feeling that you are being shooed out the door to make space as quickly as possible. It is totally acceptable to sit down for a while, just relax and look out the window. It really makes you feel comfortable. It was a great coffee experience and I would certainly recommend it to anyone in the area.More

Found this on a little corner during a walkabout in Reykjavik. Small but has a lovely atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff and good coffee. I have a wheat intolerance but they had several gluten free goodies to choose from. A good place to chill out

We arrived in Reykjavik in the middle of a storm and this was the first place we found. Absolutely great coffee, reliably friendly and welcoming staff, and the perfect place for our family to start every morning. We ended up coming every morning of our...holiday and didn't find anywhere better.More

Found this little gem of a place on the last morning of our stay in Reykjavik - wish we had found the first day! Staff were very friendly and welcoming and ensured that our group of 5 had somewhere to sit. Coffee was amazing as...were the pastriesMore

Crowded, popular with locals, and a fine place to get your caffeine in well-brewed drinks. Tried their hummus/date paste toast and am a fan! (I now make it at home) Highly recommended

A great coffee shop in the middle of Reykjavik town center with really good coffee. Cozy seating and good selection of merchandise (including coffee beans, which I love gifting to coffee lovers.)
