Best waffles in town. Cozy retro café with most of the original setting, crowned by an old picture of the owners by the register.

At least that is what it looked like the few times we went. This is an old style coffee/pastry shop, and I think they do sandwiches too. When you open the door you hear the chatter of people speaking a wonderfully strange language interspersed with...More

We stopped in here for a hot coffee and a snack while shopping. It's a bit dark inside but the coffee was very good as was the little cake I had.

We love the waffles here - I will say that it does take a bit to get your food/coffee and often feels like there’s only one person working but it’s totally worth the wait! Great coffee from americanos to lattes and the waffles are our...More

Always provides great coffee and hot chocholate. And has some great cakes as well. Great location on the street that leads up to the big church in Reykjavik.

You'll go there for the atmosphere and the cakes. Staff is not always the most friendly but I'll take it just for the cakes 🙊

Went with a friend for a quick breakfast on our way out of town. This is supposedly the oldest coffee shop in Reykjavik. It was like a library inside so if you want to be loud, this isn't your place. Coffee was good. We had...More

This is my ideal coffee shop. It is small but very cosy and warm. Friendly, helpful staff, excellent coffee and yummy cakes. Just perfect!

Love the little tables. Delicious waffle and swiss mocha. Not many more hearty food options though. Apparently the oldest coffee shop in Reykjavik.

Being a self professed coffee addict, I had searched for all the best coffee shops in Reykjavik, and was determined to try them all. This proved easier than we thought as coffee was always a good idea in order to get out of the cold!...More

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.
