We’ve stopped off here several times for coffee and cake. The service has been a bit hit and miss previously but this time it was great. We were greeted by a friendly young waitress who came around to our side of the counter and talked...More

The most unorganised restaurant I have visited. Sold out on many things early in the afternoon. A lot of stress going on and the place is waiting for a big group. I will not come back. 😣

Like all restaurants in Reykjavik this one is overpriced. But the atmosphere is open and pleasant (even if the server misread my order). A nice stop after the noontime tour/concert.

We stopped at this restaurant for hot chocolate on a cold, windy, rainy day. The seating area is large enough that we were comfortable sitting there until we were ready to brave the weather. The atmosphere is open and spacious. The hot chocolate wasn't that...More

Thought we would shout ourselves coffee and cake at the Harpa which is a beautiful building inside and out. The staff could barely be bothered to serve us and there were only 2 other people eating. Everything was an effort. Had just spent two weeks...More

Dropped in for a coffee and cake. The coffee was ok but the carrot cake was a little too much. However, customer service was incredibly poor considering the location and the quality service usually upheld in Iceland. The waitress was uninterested and rolled her eyes...More
