Röst Coffee House, Reykjavik

The Place

Röst Coffee House, Reykjavik is a cosy little café on the old harbour. Delicious coffee. Super friendly staff. And a view of the sea from a warm and comfortable corner. Pure hygge.

The Neighbourhood

Röst Coffee House, Reykjavik can be found in the same complex as the Seabaron restaurant – an area of beyond basic buildings designed primarily to withstand the worst the weather can throw at them.

There are a few museums nearby. And the Harpa Concert Hall is just up the road. If you’re staying at 101 Hotel (as I did – read my review here) it’s around a 10 minute walk away.

A Good Shout for…

A food and drink pit stop after a bracing walk along the seafront.
