“Lovely cosy cafe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

Really nice cafe in a central location. It actually becomes more of a bar in the evening, the perfect place to enjoy a coffee/beer etc. Also the home-made cakes were amazing!

“Brilliant coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

We are here at the moment before going to dinner at Tapas Barinn. Really cosy and comfortable sofa's. I could sit here for hours with a good book. It definitely makes you feel like you are on holiday, it's like something out of a film on a cold winters day. Best coffee I have had since being in Iceland. Red wine not so good, avoid the Chianti, it tastes like water. Good selection of bottled beers.

“Perfect Coffee House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

This was one of my favorite places in Iceland. Our hotel was right across the street and this was a perfect place to relax. I am in love with the furniture and vibe of the place. My soy latte was wonderful as well. The people working were always nice and helpful, also beer and liquor (which is always a plus). Anyway, I just got back from our trip here so this is fresh in my mind and I know I will definitely be missing this place in my daily routine.

“Cool little cafe for a midday break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

We stopped here for a coffee and a cake after a full morning of walking. The cafe is very comfortable with lovely coffee and cakes, very nice atmosphere and is clearly quite a busy hang-out. Lots of choices for drinks.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Simply one of the best places to have a coffee (and if you want a fantastic chocolate cake as well).
Relaxed atmosphere, nice people everywhere, nobody bothers when you're sitting around and use the WiFi.
The soup smelled delicious, too.
And it's just opposite Kraum (design store) so that you can easily relax after spending money there.
