Cupcake Cafe is a cute new Cafe located in the heart of the city. Everything is in walking distance, from shopping to looking at our beautiful landmarks such as Hallgrimskirkja and Harpa. The café is great for dropping in after a or while shopping on Laugavegur shopping street We specialise in cupcakes and great coffee but we also serve great breakfast and lunch. Oatmeal, greek yogurt and our special sandwiches are most popular.
