It was raining outside and suddenly we found that place with antler, teapot, embroidery on the wall, money from more than 20 different countries were hanging... all table set differently... toilet in the name of Star Wars :) but still a friendly and homy place to warm up, eat a cake with a cup of coffee.

This was the first place I stopped on my visit to Reykjavik. The staff was welcoming and friendly. I had coffee and pastry. They have nice outdoor seating area in back. The Free WiFi was fine.

Really cute and cozy upstairs. Can be a perfect quiet corner for getting work done. Went for delicious deserts- cookies and crepes almost daily whenever I was in Reykjavik.

I rated this as "Average" because the cafe was super cute. I spent about two hours here as shelter from the rain. There are two floors so lots of seating including balcony seats. Coffee with free refills ($5.50 cdn) but not very good coffee. It wasnt watered down but just had an off taste. I also got their vegan carrot cake (about $12 cdn) which was too sweet for my liking. The bathroom on the first floor is adorable! It was like an ode to star wars so feel free to take selfies!!

Babalu has a hippie/Icelandic motif. There are a variety of choices on the menu and the food is tasty and filling and we could afford it.
One thing to remember in Reykjavic is that prices for everything are much higher than at home.
