Beautiful nourishing meat or fish soup and wonderful bread rolls, warm from the oven with melting butter. Selection of Icelandic books to browse while waiting. Nice ladies serving. Our 8 yr old loved the soup and drew a picture as requested for the wall.

I wanted something warm so I had the meat soup which was flavorful and delicious. The owners are friendly and welcoming. A great place to stop for a bite downtown.

We stopped here for a coffee and also tried the tasty homemade brownie and Icelandic doughnut. The owner is very friendly and it's a nice relaxed atmosphere to chill out.

One of the best fish soup I had in Reykjavik! We tried their traditional lamb soup as well. It was one of the better ones as well. This is definitely a small family run restaurant that is worth visiting.

We had lunch twice in this cafe on the main shopping street. The food is great (especially the fish/meat soup) and the owner friendly and helpful. She made me a vegetarian dish of wheatgerm bread and seasonal vegetables with goats cheese. Delicious!
