A great coincincence brought me to this place. My mom told me to go there and try it out only yesterday. It is a place in the town center of the neighbouring town of Kópavogur. By chance I talked to a friend of mine that just bought a house very close to this place and we decided a cup of coffee was a must in order to catch up for me to see his new house and the renovation project it is gonna be. He by a coincincence asks me to meet up for breakfast at his local cafe. Cafe Dix. It seems I was destined to go. the location is great, good view over parts of my old stomping grounds in Reykjavík and the urban landacape of high rises, shops and carparks. Something that was frowned upon a few years ago, but people are now linking to urban living and the look and feel of the modern city life of today. I like it. The area is called Hamraborg in Kópavogur and is the old town center. Many shops and restaurants are popping up in the area and there is a slight buzz around it. As a good blogger I must snap a few pictures outside and inside the place before my friend arrives. When ordering my standard poison, a strong Americano, the barista and owner starts to inquire why I was taking all those pictures. I explain that I want coffee and I have this blogsite. She goes on to tell me that this is a popular place with the locals, both working professionals and the school kids who buy day old pastries at a discount price. They have some food at lunch time and the coffee is Chaqwa espresso beans. It is a family place where the woman is the barista and her husband who bakes and makes the food is a trained cook. The coffee is well brewed and tastes good. The only thing I don't like are the handles on the cup, they are too small to put one finger through. A non issue, but still. I liked the interior, metallic tables long benches under the arching windows and lots of pillows and cottage style decorations. A nice place with freshly baked baguette style bread, veggie pies and cakes. I will go again to see if they are any good again and if the standards are good. It is a bit different to go there when one is looking and thinking like a critic. So next time I will go just to enjoy.
