Hér í Austurstræti 20, í einni elstu byggingu borgarinnar, hefur kaffihúsið og veitingastaðurinn Hressingarskálinn verið rekinn með hléum frá árinu 1932. Húsið sjálft á sér langa sögu, sem nær aftur til ársins 1805 þegar það var flutt tilhöggvið frá Svíþjóð. Hressingarskálinn hefur í gegnum tíðina verið griðastaður skálda, listamanna og gáfumenna. Mörg merkustu skáld Reykjavíkurborgar hafa vermt sæti Skálans, en þekktasti fastagesturinn er þó vafalaust skáldið Steinn Steinarr (1908-1958), sem átti ávallt sinn stað vísan í eldri hluta hans.

„Kaffihúsin eru minn háskóli." — Steinn Steinarr, við Ragnar í Smára þegar Steinn hafði þótt heldur þaulsætinn á kaffihúsum Reykjavíkur.


Here in Austurstræti 20, one of the oldest buildings in Reykjavik, the café and restaurant Hressingarskálinn (The Refreshment Lodge) opened in 1932. The building itself traces its history to the beginning of the 19th century. Hressingarskálinn, or in its contracted form Hressó, has through the decades been a gathering place of writers and intellectuals. Many of Reykjavik's best known authors sought shelter, nourishment and food for thought within its walls. Among Hressó's best known regulars was the modernist poet Steinn Steinarr (1908-1958).

"I get my higher learning in cafés," answered Steinn
Steinarr, when it was implied that he spent too much time in the city's cafés.
