Other than arriving at the airport, and getting our hotel, this was the first thing we did after the sun came up at 10:30 am on our first day. We were walking to the Hallgrimskirkja and stopped in Cafe Loki for breakfast first.
I knew well in advance that we had to stop at this restaurant when we visited Iceland. Everyone said how good and authentic the food was, and that is was a very reasonable option economically. All the research ahead of time paid off, because we found everyone's reviews to be bang on.
My fiance was afraid she would starve when we got to Iceland, after reading various menus during our research. But she started with the Icelandic pancakes and I did the Icelandic Plate IV (if I remember correctly. For anyone who doesn't know, their pancakes are very much like crepes and are absolutely delicious. My meal consisted of this pie type dish that was made with pieces of rye bread and mashed fish (smoked I think), and was so flavourful. Mine also came with a sald and I absolutely demolished the rye bread icecream. I had read about it before going and everyone suggested trying it. I will continue the trend and tell you you HAVE to try it.
The food was so good, and was the level of authentic (yet not touristy) that I wanted. It was an amazing way to start an amazing trip. It had a clear view of the church which helped build our anticipation to cross the road and visit that next. This restaurant should be a must for you whether you are visiting from across the world or just localy.
