In Café Loki, a restaurant that overlooks the beautiful church Hallgrímskirkja in downtown Reykjavík, is a painting that portrays the story of Loki Laufeyjarson found in the Eddas, braiding in characters from which nearby streets take their names. Café Loki, its name deriving from the street of Loki, is a restaurant that specialises in premium-quality traditional Icelandic food. The couple, Hrönn Vilhelmsdóttir and Þórólfur Antonsson, had been living with the back view of Hallgrímskirkja. After a photo exhibition they held in the church, the idea of opening up a restaurant serving the people coming to view the church and greet the statue of Leifur Eiríksson was born.
