This place reminds of a cozy college cafe, with wooden chairs and eclectic furniture. There is an upstairs and downstairs, lots of room to sit down and chill for a while.

We enjoyed the smoked salmon sandwiches on our last day in Iceland. The atmosphere was great and the meal kept us going all day until we checked into the airport. Would definitely return.
