“Waffles and good coffees”
Review of Mokka Kaffi

Mokka Kaffi
Ranked #3 of 36 Coffee & Tea in Reykjavik
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Cafe

Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: An Icelandic tradition since 1958. Mokka is one of Reykjavik's oldest cafés and the first to install an espresso machine and serve espresso, cappuccino, and café latte in Iceland. There's a tempting selection of sandwitches, cakes, and the coffee and hot chocolate are excllent with their famous house waffles, served with cream and jam. The déckor - red carpet, leatherette booths and stools - hasn't changed much althought the art on the walls is changed every 4-6 weeks as the café has doubled as an Art gallery with new art for sale since opening.

I've tried hot chocolate, coffee and also cake here but all was under expectation. Only the cream was delicious.

Yes, it's a cute old school cafe with a nice retro feel, but I had a horribly over-priced sandwich, and a very disappointing coffee. I never went back, as there are too many other good places around (Kaffismidja, C Is For Cookie, Kaffifelagid).

I was recovering from an overnight flight and morning nap. The cafe au lait was excellent. The waffles with whipped cream were stellar. I ordered at the counter and when the server brought the waffle, she called it out in Icelandic. It went over my head as I don't know Icelandic but the people sitting next to me figured out I was a tourist and waved her over. Not surprising, as Icelanders are nice people.

Kaffi Mokka is where many locals go. It is intimate, chic and has great quality coffee drinks. It is worth sitting down for a bit to people-watch and relax.
