Rye bread ice cream with whipped cream and rhubarb syrup- please try it. That is all I am going to say:) The mural upstairs was interesting and there is a template available for free to interpret the artist's interpretation of the mural.

I don't think I can fault this place. The service was amazing, the food delicious and the price was affordable. The view is great too! Iceland is a wonderful place to visit, but it quickly sends you broke. Cafe Loki didn't do this. Would definitely...More

We arrived just as she was closing but as we wanted only the highly rated lamb soup she warmly included us. The soup (really a stew) was just what we needed on that blustery cold evening. Outstanding. And the accompanying bread was very good. Interesting...More

I went with my wife and two adult daughters. It was a fun treat. We got one platter and two desserts to split. It was enough to try! Good service.

Lovely cafe situated across from Hallgrímskirkja, had the most amazing Icelandic pancakes which is just perfect when making a small stop while walking around town.

Hello, Café Loki is around 50 minutes from the airport Keflavík. We are in front of the big church, Hallgrímskirkja
What brand of tea do they serve? My wife really liked it and I am trying to figure out if I can buy it somewhere. Thanks for the help.

Cafe Loki offer Icelandic meat soup, Icelandic plate, homemade bread and cakes. Icelandic traditional homemade dishes are our specialty. You can taste fermented shark and dried fish but Icelandic meat soup and our Icelandic plates are most popular among the Rye Ice cream and Skyr cake. Beautiful view over Reykjavik, Hallgrimskirkja church and to mountain Blafjoll. Icelandic food.
