We ate here almost every day for a week. Entrees were always delicious. Chicken korma, fresh salmon and cod were the standouts for me. Soups all very good but the mushroom was my favorite. Lovely people working there upstairs and down.

We decided to try this place out for lunch based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. There was plenty of seating and WiFI was good. We decided to skip the lunch buffet as it was very expensive. Instead we ordered from the breakfast menu and took advantage of the coffee and juice offer when ordering a breakfast item, well worth... More

We visited this Kaffi on the recommendation of a local and were pleasantly surprised. It had a really nice pleasant ambience. The lady serving was friendly and patient as there was a lot of cakes to choose from. I ended up choosing the cappuccino cheesecake which was delicious. The thing I liked the most about this experience was that I... More

People kept coming after us). We only ate because we were hungry and didn't have much time. The price for this pleasure was around 2,500 ISK per person, not... More

Very cosy and tasty place for lunch. I had the lunch buffet for 2280 Icelandic crowns and the food is very good. Nice staff as well.

I said "no" above because breakfast is not my favorite meal. Having said that I was tired of the breakfast buffets at the hotels and wanted to be waited on. I ordered scrambled eggs, home fries, bacon, toast and coffee. The eggs came fried but I did not mention it and accepted them. The entire breakfast was hot and very... More

Great selection of bread, soups and pastries. I tasted lots of fish soups around Iceland but this one was the best!

Warm, delicious soups and a selection of hearty breads. Perfect on brisk October days in Iceland. Oh... and then there are the pastries...
