Description: Cafe Haiti is by Reykjavik's Old harbor. We buy our coffee from farmers in Haiti. We roast the coffee in the shop and serve quality coffee as espresso, macchiato, cappuccino, latte, Arabic and Turkish coffee as well as tea and hot chocolate. Soups, cake´s and croissants as well as our fumes breakfast so if you are coming from the flight in the morning the stop and see us for breakfast and we also have good lunch and sandwiches. We also have food to go if you are going on the whale watching.

We enjoyed our coffee and cake in the Cafe Haiti at the Harbour. The waiter was very friendly and we had good service. The coffee was very good and the size of the cake helpings was huge! Though we managed to eat it all! I liked the more comfortable and relaxed feel of Cafe Haiti and the fact that it wasn't too modern.

Took a while for the waitress to get off the phone to serve us and £12 for 3 bottles of beer was a little heart stopping.

The coffee was great, creamy and everything! :)
Staff was nice. The carrot cake was not so good, it was a bit dry or perhaps old... The place could look better if they would invest more in it.
Perhaps in summertime it looks better... but if you are looking to taste a good coffee than this is 100% the place you should visit. :)

We were walking around Reykjavik, trying to find a cafe or restaurant that offered good food at a reasonable price...something that isn't easy in Reykjavik. We stumbled onto the Cafe Haiti, which didn't look too appealing, until we walked inside. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful; and they had a "Special Plate" of the day that was about $13.00 U.S. per person, and tasty and delicious! After that, we had a spice cake dessert that was to die for!! HIghly recommend this spot for lunch or diner!!

We dropped by with a view to eating but quickly decided against it. Whilst we enjoy quirkily little off-the-wall places, we couldn't see anything special here. We had to rouse the waitress from her magazine to order a couple of coffees. Although less than piping hot we enjoyed these then left straight away. There was little vibe here, a bit of music might have helped. The other cafe patrons seemed to be glued to their laptops in silence. We did not see the owner and I suspect we might have had a different experience had she been present. A real shame!
