This cafe bakery is located at Týsgata 8 just off Skólavörđustigur in the Laugavegur area of central Reyjkavík. With its friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere, and good food it is a wonderful stop for a snack or lunch; be advised, they close early in the evening. I definitely recommend the grilled veggie sandwich and the excellent homemade brownie!

This is over the road from hotel Odvinse and feels like a local drop-in. Best coffee we had in Reykjavik and good for snacks and cake.

C for Cookie is a quaint, little coffee shop/cafe with lovely, cozy decor. With a small variety of entrees, sandwiches, and desserts, it's a nice place for breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon snack. Outside of the decor, the thing that I loved most about this cafe is the fact that the latte is actually worth the 550ISK price tag! It's... More

But not the best coffee I had while visiting Reykjavik. The guy working at the counter wasn' t all that service oriented but that could possible be because we were there near closing time. The café had a small art exhibition which was nice.

We enjoyed visiting this cafe several times during our stay. The espresso, delicious lattes, and tasty breakfast items were the perfect to start our day. The bread was fresh, chewy, and delicious. The eggs were cooked to order and fresh as well. They even had decaf espresso for my friend who can't have caffeine. (The only place we found this... More

Went here a couple of times during our stay in Iceland. Very nice coffee and ambiance, off the main drag too. I'd recommend for a quiet moment when you need a recharge. The Swiss Mocha and Cappuccino are delicious.

The coffee was very good (which is saying a lot for Iceland, where coffee seems to be everywhere), as was the food. The atmosphere is very bohemian, again, not surprising for Iceland, and the shop is located near the downtown area with easy access to other tourist stops. Would not say it is a "must visit" but if you are... More

Grab a (Illy) coffee in this 'shabby-chic' local coffee shop. Service by the Serbian (!) barista /waitress was outstanding. Most importantly, the cappuccino (with extra shot) was made to perfection and gave us a kickstart!

We took our coffee to go as we were staying in the hotel across the way. Cute, cozy and warm. Nice little spot!
