That very first day, when you are so confused about what time zone you're in, it's a good idea to get some coffee. This is a nice little shop and the staff was very good. It's a combination of tables and chairs and also high stools with a bench behind and tall tables in between. Very competent charming barista, and... More

Icelanders love their coffee. And there are no Starbucks franchises to disrupt local purveyors of fine caffeine. Te & Kaffi (I know of at least two locations in the city) is the place to go for consistently good coffee, tasty pastries, reliable wifi, and superb people-watching.

One of my favorite places to go for coffee, you can both sit indoors or outdoors if the weather is nice, even grab a book. The place is often busy though, but relaxed.

The coffee is very good. One can choose from different ways of brewing and a variety of coffee sorts. And they have great tastig cake. The service is very friendly and the prices fair.

Been here a lot of times at the third floor just lounging around with my laptop and a cappuccino. Nice quiet place to get pretty decent coffee and unwind by looking at some books or chatting.

There are lots of these around and wow they make Starbucks look bad. I only wish we had them in Canada. I've counted 3 downtown here. We had muffins, bagels, coffee, and free refills. A great jolt for the day.

I only drink decaf coffee, which is close to impossible to find in countries outside USA. Iceland no exception. So happy when I found this place made a very strong decaf Americano. Was there everyday during Reykjavik stay.
