Description: Kaffitár is an Icelandic roasterie, specializing in importing, roasting and serving the finest Arabica coffee beans. Apart from the roasterie, the company owns seven coffee stores-espresso bars or cafés. They are located at our roastery in Reykjanesbaer, in Kringlan shopping mall, in Smáralind shopping mall, down town on Bankastraeti, in the Culture house at Hverfisgata, in the National museum and at Höfdatorg. We buy 75% of our coffee directly from the farmers, this we call "from farmer to cup" which means that our buyer, has visited the farm and selected the coffee. Lots of our direct coffee comes from Ricardo Rosales at Jesus Maria in Nicaragua. El Injerto in Gvatemala and Daterra in Brazil are also farms which we buy a lot from. Our experience is that we get better coffees and more consistent quality. Kaffitár also runs it's own Artisan bakery, Kruderí witch specializes in sourdough bread and delicious pastry.

We wanted to try the different coffeehouses, so we waited for 7:30am for this cafe to open. Great atmosphere, and very popular, lots of locals come here.

We had their breakfast sandwich (ham, egg, cheese, thick piece of bread) and the tuna salad (open face sandwich, tuna salad) on a toasted bread. Excellent meal to start the day.

Decent prices, good staff, happy with the service. Free WiFi available.

Who doesn't love a good caffè macchiato? Weird people. Had delicious ones here. Nutella croissant to add to me developing belly fat. So good, you can't say no. Perfect location. Walk up the cold street, stop and have a hot drink, keep moving up the street until your next warm stop. I'll have to come back here in their summer.

We stopped in here for breakfast - coffee and hot chocolate very good. We had cinnamon rolls but there were plenty of other things to choose from.

Lovely little coffee house with vast array of different cofffees and cakes. Can definitely recommend the hot chocolate too. Very busy all the time. Friendly service and good atmosphere. 2 hot drinks and 1 slice of cake, about £18
