Charming little bookshop/cafe in Laugavegur. Just right for a good cheap meal after a hard day's sightseeing. Burger/pasta menu, although Icelandic burgers are much better than you might think. Pasta portions very large indeed. Cakes as sinful as anywhere else.

Get a window seat, as laughing at passing hipsters is always fun.

Had Berger with fries & quiche. Good food right price. Found by accident, looking for a simple meal that didn't break the bank. Saw the pancakes, wish I had them also

A great find, a massive full English breakfast and wonderful pot of tea for £14. Very relaxing place, comfortable, nice music, atmosphere, books and gifts etc. Was very full and satisfied, the nicest thing I ate in Reykjavik!

We had to wait almost 40 minutes until we received our burgers AND drinks. The burgers were almost cold and the restaurant was even not full.
