Play a game a chess or go for a sleep after eating pancake with Nutella & cream. Nice old chairs to lay back into!

Okay they were busy but that’s no excuse for being grumpy and rude! Tea only lukewarm and served in a glass. Very disappointing.

Our first morning we took a walk and came across this place for breakfast. Croissants were so good. Fresh meats and cheese. Small inside and cozy when it is snowing outside.

If you ever find yourself in Reykjavik , do not miss out this lovely coffee shop. They are great people cooking delicious hot soups, serving the most delicious hot chocolate and of course making you feel extremely comfy.

A great place to sit, relax, read a book and drink coffee. Very nice food with lovely salad. Excellent selection of deserts, some vegan. A mix and match of furniture and light fittings gives a very homely feel. Lovely place.
