Just stopped inside for a chai latte (680 ISK) and a coffee (480 ISK). The staff was very open and helpful and the place has a very cozy feel. It's perfect for a hot drink or warm meal while walking around Laugavegur. Worth the visit!

We enjoyed a light lunch and coffee but the vegetable lasagna looked wonderful. Wish we had time to return to try it!

We had great coffee and delicious cakes here. And I've smiled each time when I saw the wild boar hanging on the wall

This is a lovely quirky coffee chop/cafe in the centre of Reykjavik. There's a wonderful range of 'decorations' around the place, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves to a Star Wars themed loo! You have to go just to experience it. We had coffee...More

A great place to warm up on a chilly rainy day! Great tomato soup and grilled cheese. A nice casual and cozy cafe with wifi and reasonable prices for Reykavik. Great for a quick bite or to hang out with a cup of coffee/tea
