We came here almost everyday! Very friendly and welcoming staff with lovely surroundings - the hot chocolate is incredible as are the triple chocolate cookies. The beer isn't bad either!

Located across the street from our hotel( hotel Fron), stepped in here to get something warm after being out in the snow. This is a lovely cosy spot & they served the nicest hot chocolate. Recommend a pit stop here during your walk about in Reykjavik

Found this lovely little cafe on the last day of our trip and wish we had found it sooner. Just popped in for coffee but couldn't resist the carrot cake, which was superb, and hot chocolate, friendly staff and cosy surroundings.

A nice little cafe on the main street, we stopped specifically for a liquorice latte and we were not disappointed. They did take a short time for the delivery of the drinks but the taste made up for it!!

My friends and I stumbled upon this place when we just wanted a quick cup of coffee and we went back every day of our trip! Best chai latte I have ever had and the food was amazing. I got the ham, cheese, and mayo sandwich every time and it was by far the best sandwich I have ever had!... More

Nice place to stop for a coffee or lunch in the main street in Reykjavik. Sandwiches were tasty, good selection of drinks and free wi-if. Worth stopping by!

Licorice is a somewhat prevalent flavor in Iceland, so needless to say, I had to try the licorice latte upon stopping here one night. It did not disappoint. The texture of the coffee was satisfyingly smooth and thick, and the flavors only intensified its satisfying warmth. Tastes of richly brewed coffee mingled with the deep, velvet of dark chocolate notes,... More

We stumbled across this place whilst looking for a somewhere to have a quick drink before heading back to the airport for our flight home! My husband had a coffee and I had a hot chocolate, both were really good. I'm a little fussy about my hot chocolates as sometimes I find them too 'chocolatey' but this one was just... More

This cafe is a nice place to stop when looking around Reykjavik - nowhere is cheap but at least you can get good quality food here. We ordered waffle and bacon with syrup and 2 coffees - £30 approx!!! But the waffle was cooked well and so no complaints. Our friends also enjoyed their sandwiches. The only complaint is the...

My friend and I spent 5 days in Reykjavik and made it a point to come to this coffee shop every day of our stay. My favorites were the swiss mocha and the hot chocolate. The espresso beans that they use are incredible smooth, and whatever chocolate they put into their drinks taste like magic. So creamy and rich. Lovely... More
