Who doesn't love a good caffè macchiato? Weird people. Had delicious ones here. Nutella croissant to add to me developing belly fat. So good, you can't say no. Perfect location. Walk up the cold street, stop and have a hot drink, keep moving up the street until your next warm stop. I'll have to come back here in their summer.

We stopped in here for breakfast - coffee and hot chocolate very good. We had cinnamon rolls but there were plenty of other things to choose from.

Lovely little coffee house with vast array of different cofffees and cakes. Can definitely recommend the hot chocolate too. Very busy all the time. Friendly service and good atmosphere. 2 hot drinks and 1 slice of cake, about £18

I went here for a quick drink and bite to eat and was surprised at how cheap it was for Reykjavik. You can get a refillable coffee for around 480 krona. The blueberry muffins are delicious, a must try and also the breakfast sandwich! Definitely a hidden gem

This is a bustling little coffee shop in the town centre. It is busy with a mixture of locals and tourists. My cappuccino was perfect and the young girl serving was very friendly and efficient. They also sell a selection of sandwiches and pastries which looked tempting. The cafe has a strong Wi Fi signal, which is always good. We... More

Being a self confessed coffee addict I was glad to find this wee gem. Lovely coffee, good selection of cakes, pleasant staff and warm atmosphere. Only improvement would be a little jingle in the background!

Needed to fill half an hour, coffee and blueberry muffin were good. Had people in using laptops like an old Internet cafe. Warm and welcoming staff

Description
Kaffitár is an Icelandic roasterie, specializing in importing, roasting and serving the finest Arabica coffee beans. Apart from the roasterie, the company owns seven coffee stores-espresso bars or cafés. They are located at our roastery in Reykjanesbaer, in Kringlan shopping mall, in Smáralind shopping mall, down town on Bankastraeti, in the Culture house at Hverfisgata, in the National museum and at Höfdatorg. We buy 75% of our coffee directly from the farmers, this we call "from farmer to cup" which means that our buyer, has visited the farm and selected the coffee. Lots of our direct coffee comes from Ricardo Rosales at Jesus Maria in Nicaragua. El Injerto in Gvatemala and Daterra in Brazil are also farms which we buy a lot from. Our experience is that we get better coffees and more consistent quality. Kaffitár also runs it's own Artisan bakery, Kruderí witch specializes in sourdough bread and delicious pastry.
