If you wish to have brunch here, arrive just before opening (11:00 a.m. when we were there), as the place is quite small (I counted seating for about 24 patrons on banquettes and chairs, plus a few stools at the bar) and also quite popular,...More

Very trendy little cafe for brunch. Light, airy and welcoming it was a lovely place to be. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. Who’d have thought that pesto and scrambled eggs would go together?

We stopped in here after having a beer tasting across the street. The place is very very small but so adorable. My bro and I were lucky enough to snag two seats at the bar. We ordered a pizza that was the special of the...More

The food is very tasty. It tastes like home made, with simple and healthy ingredients. The service was great as was the ambiance. We highly recommend the burrito and ask for hot sauce. The beet mimosa was also very refreshing and something I hadn’t tried...More

Do not go to The Coocoo's Nest at Grandi to eat. You will go to meet the foreign guests and feel the rustic décor in one of the fish sheds. At lunch there is a lot of guests, the same type of Icelanders and travellers,...More

Cute place. My turkey & bacon sandwich was the best ever. Menu is short and focused - don't know why people are complaining - made my decision much easier, and is a sign of a good kitchen.

The food was good and we were very excited to go there but the service was pretty damn bad. We got bluberry pancakes but there were no blueberries in the pancakes, not even on top!! We were also kind of sad that people that arrived...More

Tuesday Taco night. OMGoodness. Been eating tacos for over 50 years. Just had the best ones ever. So fresh. Zesty, zingy, mouthwateringly more-ish. When you come to Reykjavik, don't miss this place. Friendly, sweet, staff. Pastry on offer was one of the staff's grandmother's recipe!...More
