Why locals love it?

A tiny coffeehouse in middle of Laugavegur, the main shopping street. It´s a perfect place to sit back with a cup of tea and browse your e-mails. The location is a big part of the local history and is now under preservation. Nice place to grab a glas of red wine, sit down by the window and do a little people watching

Why you should visit it

Its a nice place to meet locals, who share interest in alternative music and art. The beer is reasonably priced, with happy hour everyday until 20:00. The interior is quite retro and the atmosphere is quite friendly. It's a small place though and it can be crowded at times.

Special tip

Catch some of the alternative concerts that are held there regularly. Its a great way to discover the latest big thing before it catches on.

I should go there more often, because the second floor is perfect for drinking coffee with a friend or just sitting there alone, chilling in your computer and stuffing your face with an insane amount of sandwiches, which is on the menu I recommend 100%. Oh, and they put lemons and cucumber in the free water jugs.
