“Very friendly and wonderful local food”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for a quick coffee and three "pancakes" each with sweet cream and a local rhubarb jam. We also tried the traditional wedded bliss cake since we were enjoying out anniversary. Very friendly service and worth a stop.

“Lovely homemade bread rolls and soups”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Great traditional food”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Cosy cafe in the centre of Reykjavik”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Reasonable homemade fish soup!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

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.
