Loved the Iceland dishes offered. Can do a meal or sample appetizers for lower cost or less filling dishes. I enjoyed the mashed fish and the herring and eggs on soft slight sweet brown bread. The rye eye cream was fantastic! Sweeter than I expected....More

We went here for breakfast right after arriving in Iceland and were not disappointed. I had a crepe/pancake and a couple of lattes, while my husband had the fancy caramel skyr crepe shown in the logo. Both were great!

Reykjavik is not the best city for parking. Most of it is street parking, and you'll need to buy a permit at the kiosk. If you're not impaired, walking is usually faster and less frustrating.

Icelandic traditional food Cafe Loki offer Icelandic meat soup, Icelandic sample plates, homemade bread and cakes. Icelandic traditional homemade dishes are our specialty. You can taste fermented shark and dried fish but Icelandic meat soup and our Icelandic plates are most popular among the Rye Ice cream and Skyr cake. Beautiful view over Reykjavik, Hallgrimskirkja church and to mountain Blafjoll. Icelandic food.
