Description: Cafe Haiti is by Reykjavik's Old harbor. We buy our coffee from farmers in Haiti. We roast the coffee in the shop and serve quality coffee as espresso, macchiato, cappuccino, latte, Arabic and Turkish coffee as well as tea and hot chocolate. Soups, cake´s and croissants as well as our fumes breakfast so if you are coming from the flight in the morning the stop and see us for breakfast and we also have good lunch and sandwiches. We also have food to go if you are going on the whale watching.

Cafe Haiti delivered with phenomenal coffee and a tasty breakfast that satisfied all day long. A great little find right by the water, and their coffee is served at the HI Downtown Hostel to boot!

This coffeehouse near the water is where you should go if you're missing that perfect cup while in Iceland. We bought a pound to take back to the States and wished we'd taken two!

The ambiance is cozy and warm, and the people are quite friendly. Even if you don't have business in the harbor area, it's worth the walk and the wind.

We were waiting for the start of our Elding Whale Watching tour. The winds were blowing quite hard and we were cold and looking for a warm place to hang out. This place is great. The smell of their roasting coffee beans will bring you in. It was wam and invinting and they even made us Chai Tea, their own recipe. It was delicious. Prices were reasonable, with a clean toilet to boot. Free Wifi, what more could you ask for.

My husband and I stumbled on this coffee haus after taking the last puffin fishing boat tour of the year on Sept 1st - Cafe Haiti is in a cool old repurposed building on the harbor ... Love the ambiance - totally chill, wifi, gorgeous photographs for sale on the walls, and looks like they must offer live music ... We even met a local writer and had a nice conversation. The coffee is excellent - best we've had in Reykjavik and we've already been to at least five other coffee places already! The writer says she thinks it's the best coffee in town & could see her happiness when she breathed in the aroma of the ground coffee she was taking home. Tried the chocolate coconut brownie with light creme and the chocolate cake - yum! they are both wonderful! Good prices for Reykjavik, too. Definitely recommend!

If you visit the harbour area, you'll find this place easily if you take a good sniff of air in - the coffee is very good, and the cakes equally so.

Our table rocked more than the whale-watching boat we went out on, however!
