Oh my!

We stopped here on our first evening in Reykjavik as it was recommended by a friend.

Hubby had the italian meat soup in a bread bowl and I had the chilli vegetable soup in a bread bowl. All washed down with a nice, cold, Gull beer. Yum!

Great for lunch, the bread bowls were huge and the soup piping hot. Location overlooking Laugavegi on the second floor of the building offered a good vantage point for people watching.

All the other 5 star reviews have said it already - this is the best soup we found in Reykjavik, by a mile. It's a very good idea and a nice bit of theatre to serve the soup in crusty cob bread, and the soup we had was excellent. The perfect meal to keep you going on a cold dark afternoon. The atmosphere is good and the service is relaxed but friendly. Great selection of beers too.

What a find - on a very dark and cold night in Reykjavik - we found this place serving soup in a bread bun - very cool and no washing up - we visit twice and have a very tasty Mexican chicken soup. Good value in a city that is very expensive, It gets very busy and a few times we had to go back later to get a table.

What can I say apart from delicious! 2 choices of soul each day.. On offer for us were mushroom and spicy chicken... Both gorgeous. The bread is crusty and tasty (almost finished the whole bowl).
Staff are very friendly and the whole place is welcoming.

Definitely visit
