This is a very good place to have a coffee and hang out. There is also many power outlets to plug your laptop or charge your phone. It is very popular and often crowded though.

This was a really nice coffee shop in the center of the the 101 district of Reykjavik on one of the main streets. The coffee and dessert was great both times we went. We would go there again if we make another trip to Reykjavik.

The coffee and rhubarb pie were great, the free wifi was fast, atmosphere was good, customers were chatting and playing boardgames. The service came with a nice smile so who wouldn't like this place!
