Super cozy café, located in the heart of Reykjavik. The coffee is great, I unfortunately didn't get a chance to try any of the food but it all looked delicious! I loved people watching out one of the windows!

Quirky, incredibly relaxed, cozy cafe bar. Delicious range of tasty beers and a generous "Happy hour". Something magical about this place.

A cosy café with old furniture and a great location. We where only in for coffee and cake and to rest a bit after trawling the town with all the other tourists. The Coffee was really good, but the cake was not so good.

We enjoyed a leisurely morning with great coffee, excellent food, and fun 1970s-era music. Perfect for a rainy morning. :-)
