Icelanders love their coffee. In fact, they enjoy it so much that Iceland is ranked fourth in the world for its coffee habit. It's guessed that Icelanders consume 8.3 kilogram of coffee beans a year. For visiting coffee fans that means you'll be in caffeine heaven, as there are cafes on nearly every corner of Reykjavik's downtown streets. But, even if you don't like coffee, many of the city's cafes offer so much more, like (loving fancy things too much) sweets, local craft beers and art exhibitions, making them great spots to relax and people watch in between shopping and sightseeing. Couple that with an excellent selection of food-related tastes, from traditional Icelandic fare to Thai, and a healthy love of beer, music and a late-night club scene, and you'll discover why Reykjavik has come out as a hip other choice to major European powerhouses, such as Paris and Rome.

This guide will answer all those questions and so much more. Really, it's like having a best friend in the city,except you don't have to buy it dinner!
