The classical bookstore. You can bring books and magazines to the café on the second floor.
What is better than having the perfect cup of coffee and reed a book or magazine of your choice
This is one of my guilty pleasures, I go there when I crave some "me time". The bookshop has a café on the top floor. Not fanciest coffee in town but so great because you can read new magazines and books while you enjoy your coffee.
The store is on multiple floors and a good place to find Icelandic books in English.
“This is an Icelandic clothing store that sells high quality clothing for the outdoors.”
“If you're interested in minimal contemporary art. They also host nice exhibitions which are all worth seeing.”
“This small island, Viðey, has the Imagine Peace tower by Yoko Ono, in memoriam of John Lennon, lit every year by her on his birthday& sculpture by Richard Serra worth seeing. Lovely view to Reykjavík”
“These guys serve seriously good coffee. A place where you drop in for a quick coffee. No seats :)”
