“I think this is where the locals go for their coffee and cakes”

Mokka Kaffi

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.

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 laughter. The crowd seemed to be older than at some of the other cafes in town that we visited with many fewer tourists. The cappuccino and hot chocolate were delicious. Centrally located the the city shopping area, it is easy to sip your coffee and imagine Icelanders in years past enjoying their friends, family and coffee just as they do today in this place that is a step back in time.

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 favorite!

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
