We went there for lunch. And it was amazing, everyone ordered a different dish and we taste tested everything. The traditional Icelandic tea is soooo good and the water is for free. The place got free WiFi.

Incredible food. Tried the dried fish with bread and fermented shark. A taste of the brennivin was perfect to finish a healthy breakfast. Service is good and the people is very friendly.

Reykjavik is not the best city for parking. Most of it is street parking, and you'll need to buy a permit at the kiosk. If you're not impaired, walking is usually faster and less frustrating.

Hello, Café Loki is around 50 minutes from the airport Keflavík. We are in front of the big church, Hallgrímskirkja

Cafe Loki offer Icelandic meat soup, Icelandic sample plates, homemade bread and cakes. Icelandic traditional homemade dishes are our specialty. You can taste fermented shark and dried fish but Icelandic meat soup and our Icelandic plates are most popular among the Rye Ice cream and Skyr cake. Beautiful view over Reykjavik, Hallgrimskirkja church and to mountain Blafjoll. Icelandic food.
