Every time I'm in Iceland I go back to Stofan Cafe. Food is very good, including the breakfast (I just wish they served skyr instead of greek yogurt). Coffee and hot chocolate are also very good. Feels comfortable and easy going.

Super cozy café, located in the heart of Reykjavik. The coffee is great, I unfortunately didn't get a chance to try any of the food but it all looked delicious! I loved people watching out one of the windows!
