“Great place to feed your sweet tooth”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

We were searching for a place for afternoon coffee and cakes and had failed to find many attractive options in the Old Town area when we came across this bookstore, gift store and coffee shop.

There are just a few tables at the far end of the store, but it's a very relaxed and friendly place that seemed to be doing a lot of trade with the locals and they serve nice Illy coffee and rather large portions of cakes with whipped cream, which fitted the bill perfectly.

Recommended for when you get the sweet tooth urge in this part of town.

“A great, cosy place in the heart of Reykjavik”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

A great, cosy place in the heart of Reykjavik. A good place to sit down with friends or family and have a cup of coffee, a beer, a plate of cake or a sandwich. I absolute recommend this place to everyone!
