We stopped here on a good tour and the rye bread ice cream was amazing. Would definitely stop back for more!

Located right next to the Hallgrímskirkja, so you want to get a table on the second floor where you will have a nicer view right into the church. They had the best meat soup in Reykjavik, and we did try it in several places. Do...More

We were looking for genuine Icelandic food and Cafe Loki did not disappoint. Very nice presentation of food and it was very fresh. Price is always high in Iceland but at least it was good quality.

Hello, Café Loki is around 50 minutes from the airport Keflavík. We are in front of the big church, Hallgrímskirkja
What brand of tea do they serve? My wife really liked it and I am trying to figure out if I can buy it somewhere. Thanks for the help.

Cafe Loki offer Icelandic meat soup, Icelandic plate, homemade bread and cakes. Icelandic traditional homemade dishes are our specialty. You can taste fermented shark and dried fish but Icelandic meat soup and our Icelandic plates are most popular among the Rye Ice cream and Skyr cake. Beautiful view over Reykjavik, Hallgrimskirkja church and to mountain Blafjoll. Icelandic food.
