Description: An Icelandic tradition since 1958. Mokka is one of Reykjavik's oldest cafés and the first to install an espresso machine and serve espresso, cappuccino, and café latte in Iceland. There's a tempting selection of sandwitches, cakes, and the coffee and hot chocolate are excllent with their famous house waffles, served with cream and jam. The déckor - red carpet, leatherette booths and stools - hasn't changed much althought the art on the walls is changed every 4-6 weeks as the café has doubled as an Art gallery with new art for sale since opening.

“Don't miss the whipped cream”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

I was recovering from an overnight flight and morning nap. The cafe au lait was excellent. The waffles with whipped cream were stellar. I ordered at the counter and when the server brought the waffle, she called it out in Icelandic. It went over my head as I don't know Icelandic but the people sitting next to me figured out I was a tourist and waved her over. Not surprising, as Icelanders are nice people.

“Best Local Coffee House”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Kaffi Mokka is where many locals go. It is intimate, chic and has great quality coffee drinks. It is worth sitting down for a bit to people-watch and relax.

“WAFFLES FROM HEAVEN”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

The best waffle I have eaten in 60+ yrs of life. It was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside with a mouth watering whipped cream and some marmalade on the side. It was so good that we had to get a second. the hot chocolate was superb, too.

“A bit too retro”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

I insisted on going here after reading a review in a travel supplement. Waffles shouldn't be that complicated but they managed to cremate ours.They redid them and the second batch were burned as opposed to cremated;) The hot chocolate was good especially as we were offered complimentary refills. The floor was dirty.
