We were there twice and tried both types of soup, cofee and some cakes. Very good food. Staff is really friendly. Nice view of street.

We had a seafood soup, vegetable soup, soda and draft beer for 4,200 ISK ~ 32 USD. A little over priced but the food, atmosphere and service were great. View of the street traffic was a nice break.

Me and my husband went there twice, when it's cold outside sometimes all you need is a big bowl of soup. Both times the service was quick, the staff friendly and the soups were amazing. very good value for money. loved it.

If you're looking for a quirky little bar, this is it! This was the busiest place that we ate. Service was swift, soup was tasty and the novelty of being able to eat your bowl - less washing up! The soup was tasty. We loved it. It was just what we needed, warming and tasty. Yum!
