A stop for lunch after arriving in Iceland and headed to Blue Lagoon. The lobster soup is everything promised. Lamb soup was good but not memorable. Free refill. Worth the hunt.

We stayed in Grindavík for one night at the start at our week long Iceland trip. Our guesthouse owner recommended the soup at Bryggjan Cafe. We had checked out and visited the Blue Lagoon, then did some of the sights along the south-west tip, before...More

Not that easy to find down at the harbor—-and then climb upstairs to the third floor. The cafe is in a net making factory so a huge space with a little counter and options of three kinds of soup along with bread. Expensive, but delicious!

We stopped for a cup of coffee but ended up getting soups. We tried all three varieties and all very good. Must try if you are enroute to Blue lagoon!

They have some great soups on the menu - salmon, lobster etc. There is a vegan soup as well. The staff is super friendly.

One vegetarian option - soup. It was vegan when we went but isn't guaranteed. Was absolutely packed for Good Friday and only had one vegetarian soup portion left at 5pm - must have been packed all day!

Our tour stopped at the fishing village of Gindavik just to have lunch at Bryggjan. They serve lamb soup and lobster soup. The lobster soup is excellent and was great for a cold rainy day. Great place for lunch as you tour around Reykjanes.

Stopped here during a tour for a quick lunch. It was super cold and windy, so I opted for their vegetarian soup option. Not only was I stoked to find a veg soup, but it was DELICIOUS! Some of the best soup I've ever had...More

In a way, yes. Bryggjan is between 7 and 8 km from The Blue Lagoon so if you don't mind walking for around 1,5 hours you could do that. The main road can be busy with traffic but there are some trails you could follow. Maybe... More

I agree. Probably safest to go near lunch hour. There are several other cafes in the area that serve breakfast.
