Come here and savour some quality downtime. Cakes, giant waffles and well brewed coffee. Decor is original 50s/60s and nowhere else quite like it. Cosy.

Just dropped in for a mocha treat. Delicious and pretty with whipped cream on top! A quiet, restful stop along one of the main shopping streets.

Best place to stop for a caffeinated drink by far. I ordered the cappuccino and it tasted amazing! The waffles also looked delicious too, but I didn't have a chance to stop back in and try them.

The waffles here were very good. However, when I went they did not have any decaf coffee, or any flavor syrups to add to coffee. If you like caffeinated coffee with no flavor, then I would highly recommend!

Great coffee and such a great setting - has a real old school feeling and no frills. The cakes were so delicious.

Called in for a coffee on a wet rainy morning. Coffee was very good and reasonable ( for Iceland). It was warm, cosy and friendly staff. Well worth a visit

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.
