This is exactly the type of caff I love. A cafe that turns into a wine bar at night! :-) Just kidding...although it does, we unfortunately didn't have time to sample its nocturnal incarnation. The breakfast, though, I can heartily recommend. I had the bacon and eggs, with American-style waffle and skyr on the side. Not cheap, at about 2400 kroner, but this was a relaxing place to hang out - particularly with the snow and rain lashing at the windows!

There's just something really comforting about being in this space & it's decorated like a grandmother's cozy living room. If I lived here, I would come frequently. It's a great spot to stop & have some tea/coffee/snacks after walking around the city & the quirky location below street level is nice too -- like having your own private hangout place. The staff is friendly & the place can get packed especially around tea time. Highly recommended.

We stumbled on this lovely little cafe by chance and are so glad we did. Definitely the best cup of tea in town, made in a teapot rather than usual bag in cup of hot water. Free refills on coffee. Breakfast good value, delicious and made to order, and reasonably priced by Iceland standards. They also serve cakes, and rolled pancakes with syrup at 75 kr each. There was also light lunches but we didn't try those. The staff were very friendly and pleasant.

We stumbled upon this cozy little place looking for a place to have a nice coffee. The staff were really friendly, and we noticed that there were not many tourists in there. I think this is always a good sign if the locals are the frequents! The atmosphere was really warm and small and definitely had a local, Icelandic feel to it. It had some really cool antique decor. We ended up back at this little cozy gem for breakfast another day, which was an amazing choice - a lovely home-cooked-type meal which was very filling and decently priced. We would definitely recommend this for a coffee, breakfast or light lunch!

Was busy when we were there but perched ourselves on the bar area.
The gentleman servicing was great, enjoyed a joke with us and had a great sense of humour which I feel is important... All customers seemed happy.
We had a great waffle and a double espresso, you can tell the coffee was well looked after, it was spot on... Great stuff!
