We came into Mokka Kaffi for a snack on our last day in Reykjavik. I was pretty full from breakfast still but my sister needed to have their waffles before we left for the airport. We came in about 11am and there were two other...More

Popped in as a shelter from the rain and we wanted a coffee break - glad we did. The service was friendly; not the quickest - but we weren't in a hurry. The interior is very dark and basic, but it felt good, had a...More

We tried the waffle as everyone recommended. Yes they are pretty good. The only drawback of this place is the seating area (not as comfortable as Kaffitar) and also no free wifi

Loved the ambiance. Dark, homely and quite a character of its own. Espresso was good. The only thing lacking, per the usual viewer on the TripAdvisor, would be the lack of wifi. Otherwise a solid establishment.

Mokka Kaffi is the epitome of what I look for in a cafe. Excellent espresso, focused delicious menu, skilled staff, and a simple, interesting decor. Apparently the oldest cafe in Reykjavik, it has a timeless feel to it. The wood and leather benches, small wood...More

Tiny place in Reykjavik...has great waffles and hot chocolate! Waffles are served with jam and whipped cream and come hot off the waffle iron. It was a relaxing break from sightseeing!

I loved the breakfast we had in this place specially the waffles that reminded me the Belgium ones, crunchy and just cooked. The coffe was also good but the price for a breakfast was expensive even for Iceland. Almost 30 euro a breakfast including two...More

This was our first stop after arriving in Reykjavik. This is the oldest coffee house in Iceland and all the reviews were positive and true. The waffles and coffee were delicious. The place is small and you order at counter then sit down and they...More

Also, the cafe mocha was one of the best I've had too! Hoping to find this place. I still have the receipt but some of it is not understandable for me.

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.
