Stopped here on our way back to Reykjavik airport rather than have a meal at the hotel. So glad we did. Very friendly welcome and really nice food. The lightly salted cod is gorgeous. Great place and highly recommend it.

Good friendly service but the food was average. Very salty chips with the burgers. The salad had way too much onion. The flat bread with lamb turned out to be a flat bread with 3 slices of ham-like processed meat.

We saw this cafe as we were driving back into Reykjavik and decided on a whim to stop. The fish and chips were delicious and the service was quick and friendly!

A nice place to stop if travelling through. Friendly and welcoming.
Good choice of cakes and very accommodating when we got the wrong coffee( go for a double shot in the Americano)
Enjoy browsing pottery and enjoy the potters film shown in the back of the cafe

Absolutely loved the food! The chips were the best I’ve ever had. Sofia was phenomenal, she was very caring and helpful and made our short stop run smoothly! The cheesecake was also delicious! Would definitely recommend!
