Stopped off at Jacobsen’s for mid-morning dinner. I had the Super Bowl, fantastic flavors, lots of goodness. My sweetheart had the havarti, spinach omelette which is served with a generous portion of bread. Coffee was good, wait staff friendly. Good casual dining for sure.

Nice chilled out place for breakfast. Not too expensive (by Reykjavik standards) and good food. I had the bacon, roast potatoes, mushrooms and sourdough toast. Perfect start to the day

I ate dessert here. The cake was interesting, but tasty. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely, perfect for a catch up with friends. I recommend it.
