“Favourite coffee shop!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

This is my go-to coffee shop in Reykjavik. I love dimly lit atmospheres with couches and great music and Kofinn has all of that! The music is a cool, electronic vibe, but subtle and nice. I find Pretty Lights and Hjaltalin playing a lot in there. Vegan-friendly with soy options and flavoured lattes available. Free wifi too! I haven't actually had a beer here yet, but that is also an option as well as food. Definitely worth checking out and it's right on the main drag!

“Great stop off for a hot drink”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is a great little coffee shop for a stop off for a drink. We stayed not very long, but it is atmospheric and has a wide selection of drinks. I opted for the hot chocolate and it was well worth it.

“Fiery Indian Hut Paninis”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Kofinn was a last minute drop-in as we were getting rained on and didn't want to venture far from the bus station (we were flying back to Toronto that afternoon). Service was quick, pints were cold--and the Indian Hut Panini was big enough to share between two. Really, it was bigger than a brick and the red curry and chicken and perfect grill lines made for an impressive lunch. A little subterranean, the bar is just below sidewalk level. The soundtrack is very jazzy and our server would have been at equal ease on a surfboard with his cool dude-ness. There are stacks of old National Geographics and other vintage magazines to leaf through. Though you can still people watch, just at a different surreptitious angle!
