We went here because the review raved about the coffee and the pastries. The coffee was below average and the pastries were dry and tasteless. Give this place a pass; the city has much better to offer.

This cafe reminded us of Starbucks. Great coffee, pastries and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. We found ourselves going here frequently during our week in Reykjavik. They also serve loose leaf tea which is far superior to tea bags. So Kaffitar is a coffee &...More

Thanks for your review. Do they have almond milk, or just soya? I'm hoping to find almond milk lattes when I visit next week!

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.
