The commercial/tourist complex of central Rejyavik runs along two primary streets. Many clothing, arts and craft stores populate Skolavordustigur, a street that strikes off at a 45-degree tangent from the slightly more conventional-feeling Laugavegur street. Neither feels too kitschy. The cafes and coffee bars don't seem to open until at least 7:30 a.m., which can be a shock to the caffeine-haunted visitor accustomed to a more get-up-and-go urban attitude.
