“The best coffee in town!” Our local guide commented as our coach passed by the Café Haiti at the Old Harbour of Reykjvavik, Iceland.  I made a mental note to make my way back here once we have a free day from our packed itinerary.  For how could a coffee lover pass up any opportunity to sample good coffee wherever they are!

Café Haiti is one of those that occupy the distinct row of turquoise buildings by the harbour.  The owner of the café, Elda orders her beans from her home country of Haiti, hence the name of the café. The beans are ground and roasted at the café, and locals swear that the cuppa from this café is the best in the whole of Reykjavik.

While the service tends to be slow, the end result is a wonderful brew that smells as good as it tastes. This little café has a relaxed and cosy atmosphere and is the perfect place to drop in for a caffeine booast while exploring the Old Harbour of Reykjavik.

If you are looking for more than just coffee, Café Haiti also offers a breakfast menu, sandwiches, salads, soups, cakes and dessert.  The café also provides free wi-fi, a bonus for us tourists who are researching our next stop.

Final Verdict

Café Haiti is highly recommended for coffee-lovers, although I tend to favour the Stofan Café more.
