Fantastic place to enjoy homemade soup in a bun! The bread is so tasty and service is fast but you don't need to rush- just enjoy the soup! Other food served looked great too but as it was so cold and we were hungry it was perfect. A vat of soup is on the bar ready to go, no wifi... More

Fantastic soup in a loaf. Had the same in Poland before and didn't expect to find it in Iceland. Great atmosphere, welcoming staff. So with such great soup what reason could you find not to visit, do it !

Visiting here was a must for me and I certainly was not disappointed. There are two soup options, one meat and one veg. Both of which tasted amazing. The bread bowl is such a genius idea and certainly very filling. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food.

Walked into a small friendly bar to be greeted by tables full of people eating soup in a roll so when the staff come over to take my order i could only have one thing, the soup was delicious and exactly what i needed to warm me up after a heavy day of sight seeing.

The soup was delicious and fairly good value for Reykjavik! It was a great food experience, but the staff were not welcoming and there was a lack of music in the background! We would still visit again though, due to the DELICIOUS soup!

Well, it's soup in bread. It's a good choice if you're wanting to escape the cold. They also have a variety of different alcoholic coffee beverages (I went for an Irish Coffee). The soup is great, the service is very friendly and super quick. They do have more than just the soup in bread, but the soup in bread is... More

Great little place for food and drinks. We went for dinner on a cold night and were warmed up by the atmosphere, soup in a bread bowl and drinks! The service was quick and attentive. There was no other option for dinner than the soup in the bread bowl but it was delicious and exactly what was needed on a... More
