“Don't Miss Mokka”
Review of Mokka Kaffi

Mokka Kaffi
Ranked #3 of 42 Coffee & Tea in Reykjavik

Dining options: Breakfast
Description: 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.

This is Reykjavik's original coffee shop, and it Mokka Kaffi is a must. From the outside it is unassuming but inside, fantastic. The cappuccino is excellent and the waffles are brilliant, crispy yet fluffy. Mokka is straight down the street from Hallgrímskirkja Church, it is easy to walk past, look for the small wooden sign above the door.

The 5 minute wait was worth it. Delicious waffles that you could smell on the street with great cream and jam. Pretty good mokka too.

We stopped at this little cafe for hot chocolate. It is a small, but welcoming restaurant. You order at the counter, but there is comfortable and casual seating. The hot chocolate was good, but not the best I had in Reykjavik.

Although it doesn't look much from the outside , Mokka is a real nice and cosy cafe.
They serve great tasting coffee and a fine selection of sweet and savoury treats.
The interior decor is v-stylish, consisting of slightly dated bench 'booths' and a faded carpet that looks like it was an old pub. It was very very cool.
Staff were friendly and spoke excellent English.
I will definitely be going back there for a coffee.

A group of us stopped in here whilst we had a few hours to explore before our flight, staff were really friendly and helpful, coffee was good and the cake hit the spot perfectly. Worth a stop in for a cuppa whilst you are shopping!
