My knowledge of the Icelandic language might be basic. But even I guessed that this joint had something to do with coffee.
Kaffitár is a small coffee shop chain with its own roastery. As such it’s pretty much the place to go for an amazing cup of joe in Reykjavik.
None of that new, trendy, touristy affair. The guys at Kaffitár believe in quality over quantity. And they sell all kinds of coffee paraphernalia too. So you know where to go if you forgot to pack the cafetiere.
Kaffitár is right around the corner from 101 Hotel. (read my review here.) It was my first port of call on my first morning in Reykjavik. A man needs his coffee fix!
Seabaron restaurant, right by the Harpa Concert Hall, and Sushi Social are just a few other hotspots you can find close by.
Warming up with a hot drink before heading out to explore Reykjavik. Or picking up a few bags of coffee before heading out into the wilds.
