Espresso coffee in Reykjavik, especially flat whites

Especially when 'travel tired' I need a flat white or 2. Can anyone advise any places please?

I noticed the Perlan cafe has a photo of a flat white so I'm hopeful of at least there.

Not a coffee drinker myself, but maybe this will help as a starting point, since most places should have a menu online:

Thanks Kim T. Good resource. I’ll plot them on a map so I can walk between cafes.

The coffee in Iceland is excellent. You might find that their regular latte will do the trick for you; if not, ask them if they can add an extra shot of espresso to the latte. Of course there might be an additional cost for the extra coffee.

I usually needed a double shot to get myself goin' (I will cop to a triple on day two haha), but the coffee is so delicious there. Our glacier kayak group was discussing this phenomenon -- it's the pristine water perhaps? It's so smooth and not a hint of bitter.

Kaffitar is central in Reykjavik and has a great menu (food and coffee).

:sigh: Wanna go back. :)

Bergsson Mathús has an actual “flat white” on the menu and their espresso was excellent.
