Our first morning we took a walk and came across this place for breakfast. Croissants were so good. Fresh meats and cheese. Small inside and cozy when it is snowing outside.

If you ever find yourself in Reykjavik , do not miss out this lovely coffee shop. They are great people cooking delicious hot soups, serving the most delicious hot chocolate and of course making you feel extremely comfy.
