We called into Café Babalu after a chilly windy walk around Reykjavik on Christmas Eve. We just wanted a warm drink and somewhere comfy to sit down. We went upstairs and it was really comfortable and homely and very well decorated for Christmas. Thank you Café Babalu for being open when many others were closed.
They were not serving their usual menu, just a Christmas meal, which was OK as we didn't want food anyway (we had already bought a cake at a local bakery). They were obviously busier than they had anticipated and only had two servers working , so service was a little slow, but everyone was being patient and the staff remained polite despite some customers constantly changing their order at the counter.
According to my sons the hot chocolate was lovely, especially the one with added rum:-)
I had a fruit tea from the huge selection of teas (although no Rooibos - come on café Babalu, you must have Rooibos Tea!).
The free Wifi was an added bonus and I would definitely recommend this place for a hot chocolate/tea break. We will be back.............
