Stopped in here 2 days because the coffee was so good. We got a small breakfast to go the first time and was hooked on the coffee. It's a small place but they do the food/coffee right. The pastries were so delicious too I don't...More

I have stopped every day since arriving in Reykjavik. The mocha is good, and the croissant with Nutella was delicious. There are places to sit, and the room is bright.

This cosy cafe is centrally located in the main shopping street. It's great for coffee (and a refill) and for a fresh bagel with cream cheese. Delicious.

Nobody does breakfast better than in the US...that being said, this place makes a great quiche. Very good regular brew coffee, nice folks, yummy muffins. Best part they open earlier than most others for us early starters.

This was my one and only morning of having breakfast in Reykjavik. Kaffitar was based on a recommendation from a friend - there was a great selection of beverages, treats and more substantial meal options. Drip coffee is a good price, especially since you get...More

We only had the cookies, and they were delicious. They were substantial cookies with fruits and nuts, or with oats, or with chocolate chips. Just enough spice, and not too much sugar. We bought several and enjoyed them as mid-day snacks over the next few...More

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.
