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...More

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!

We went to mokka for a morning coffee to start the day off, and it truly measured up to the hype! Definitely recommend

Hot chocolate was REALLY good and sitting outside was so nice on a warm summer night. The chairs they have outside are on a nice shopping street with views of Hallgrimskirkja church.

I spent an afternoon in Reykjavik, and I found this amazing place. The place is small but very picturesque and quaint, it's known to be visited by loads of artists. We ordered some fresh waffles, which were probably the best waffles I've ever had in...More

Coffee quality and employee skills never disappoints. This is the only coffee house I would drop by when in Reykjavík.

Also, the cafe mocha was one of the best I've had too! Hoping to find this place. I still have the receipt but some of it is not understandable for me.

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.
