    Feels like your average Barnes and Noble style bookshop. Lots of booms, magazines, toys, gifts and a cafe, too.

    A little bit pricey, but it's a tourist place, what can you expect?

    Funny concept, but they have a big selection of great books. I guess it's nice to have a café in a bookshop since you can read magazines for free.

    Great bookstore chain. They all have Te Og Kaffi places inside so you can sit down and have a great coffee/tea drink. Free wifi and fun books/magazines to browse.

    The coffee here is great, service is great, but the free WiFi tends to be shittier than an average sewage system.

    I like Icelandic book shops! You can take a coffee, grab few magazines, surf Internet and chill in so easy, and for free!! ( I mean reading books and magazines /wifi is for free)

    Te & kaffi inside Eymundsson bookstore, same as #4. Great location, great veranda on sunny days and a great street side bar-style tables on rainy days.

    Respect! Check out the mural on 2nd floor of our founder and entrepreneur Sigfus Eymundsson who began his start-up of selling books in 1872. Yes 1872.
