A friend of mine recommended this cafe to me so I made sure it was a destination on our trip and I'm so glad I did. I only wish I had had the time to go more than once, but the one visit was one...of my favorite moments in Reykjavik. It's a smallish, casual place, a good spot for quiet conversation or reading. Most of the other customers were locals, and I felt right at home. The coffee was amazing--I will now be searching for as good a cup at home in Boston. Brunch was a plate of scrambled eggs, home fries, tomatoes, and a big slab of toast with butter and jam. Just perfect. We pulled a book on Norse mythology from the bookshelf and enjoyed refreshing our knowledge on the gods. A lovely respite and I wish we could have spent more time there.More
Decent food,good but not great. Service on the slower side but way overpriced. For 3000kr for the Truck you would guess you get a drink no sir 1200kr for medium sized glass of fresh orange juice(only small and large sizes available the large being medium...in my opinion). You can get a great hamburgermeal for much less. For better value and quality I suggest Marentza Poulsen cafe/bistro brunch at Kjarvalsstaðir museum with outdoor seating area.More
Really enjoyed our visit to this small cafe/ diner. Relaxed friendly place and great food. It was lovely to hang out there surrounded by books and different conversations. My croque madame (a long way from Paris!) was excellent, and there is a good variety of...brunchy-type dishes including vegetarian options. Loved it!More
We went to the Grey Cat in March 2020 for breakfast and it was excellent! The food was great and cooked fresh. The restaurant is maybe on the small side but I would recommend it to anyone. I had the "truck" breakfast and it was...wonderful!More
This place is very Scandinavian in its vibe and style. Feels like you're in someone's living room -- super relaxed, cosy, and comfortable (unless you get a table that only has a stool, with no back). We felt like we'd come across something special when...we found Grai Kotturinn. We ordered our breakfasts, found a good table (which a nice man moved to accommodate our larger party -- Icelanders are so nice!) and ordered our food. Unfortunately, the food was quite a disappointment. The "tomatoes" on the breakfast plate seemed as if it was just a spoonful of canned diced tomatoes, and the breakfast potatoes were completely unseasoned. The bread was VERY good, however! I'm still pleased that we found this spot as we soaked in the vibe, but ended up not eating that much on our plates and then just hungry again shortly hahaha.More
This cafe is small but very popular, the waitress kindly allowed us to reserve the next available table in 30 minutes. We waited quite a while for our food to come but this was due to how busy they were. I had the truck and...my husband had a croque madame, The truck was nice, probably catering more to American tastes - very expensive for what it was £18+ for a fry-up but tasty non-the-less.More
Breakfast at our hotel is basic cold meats, cheese fruit etc. So after some research we decided to give Grai Kotturinn a try. We were not disappointed at all. 😄 Small and compact so you may have to wait for a table. Great breakfast. Great...service. Great atmosphere.More
I read about this place before we traveled to Iceland and decided it was a "must stop" . Was not disappointed, food, service and atmosphere are great. BEWARE there is very limited seating, only about eight tables. The atmosphere is similar to a small "reading...room" which is really what makes this place along with good food and service. This is only a breakfast joint. Located up the hill from modern downtown and the old shopping district- across from culture house museum.More
The food tasted fine and the staff were super friendly but the prices were especially high. We ate two bagels, coffee and a sparkling water. This cost us $47 which I think is just ridiculous!
Considering around the corner there is a book shop with...a coffee shop upstairs which cost half the amount for the same thing, I’d say this place is gouging its customers.More
