It is a charming place in the main Street in Reykjavik. Welcoming atmosphere. I came in for a quick espresso. Very friendly and kind staff and a great espresso. The place itself is very charming and cozy .

Had a toasted sandwich freshly made and served with a bag of crisps. Tea and hot chocolate were lovely. If you are looking for a freshly made quick eats give this place a visit. Very reasonable priced.

Came here for breakfast. I ordered toast/a waffle and drank plenty of flat whites. The waffle and coffee were very good and I enjoyed relaxing in here. It's a nice little coffee bar with plenty of seating. Would recommend and would go again.

Excellent coffee and snacks. The waffles are fabulous. This place is always busy and that tells you all you need to know. It has a really cosy atmosphere and the staff are friendly and helpful. If you want a light bite or a bit of...breakfast go here, you’ll not be disappointed.More

Stopped here a number of times for coffee and waffles. Friendly staff, coffee was lovely and the waffles (we chose with chocolate and cream, other options also available) were great. Well located for a quick rest while walking around town and with a nice atmosphere....We overheard the guy making coffee ask some customers to challenge him to a coffee design on the froth and he managed to impress them.More

My husband and I were on our way to a museum and wanted to make a quick stop. My husband grabbed a beer and I grabbed a coffee. Both were excellent. The place was very busy with really only one spot available even though it...was a Tuesday afternoon. They have a happy hour later on in the day that we intended to come back for, but never made it. The staff was friendly as well.More

Best tomato soup I’ve ever had!! And the toasted sandwiches were delicious as well. Highly recommend for a heat up on a cold afternoon. Staff were so so friendly and made to feel very welcome. Thank you 🙂

On a very cold and snowy afternoon, this was a welcome stop for a very nice cup of coffee. Friendly, local and welcoming.

We stopped here for mid-afternoon coffee and cake, and were not disappointed! Whilst the chocolate cake was a little dry, the carrot cake more than made up for it- very tasty. The atmosphere in the cafe was lovely and the staff were very friendly! Our...favourite cafe (and coffee!) in Reykjavík so far! :)More
