A very cute little restaurant. We came for lunch. The food was OK, we had the lamb and Salmon. My salmon was too salty but the sides were good. I would try it again next time for a quick pastry breakfast.

Possibly the best chocolate croissants ever. Nothing else needs to be said. We got them every single day we were in town.

This is a place which opens for breakfast earlier than most others in Reykjavik. They are open at 7am. We went here as it was the recommended place for trying Icelandic breakfast.

Went in for a quick breakfast. I ordered a cappuccino and 2 pieces of homemade sourdough. The bread is both soft and warm- one of the best sourdough I ever had.

Weather was stormy today so popped in here for a nice hearty meal. Menu was limited but the food was good quality. Had an amazing lasagne with pearl barley and salad. Filled me up for the day. Quick service and nice vibes in the restaurant.

They have a blackboard with their lunch options on the wall. My gf and I both had the spinach lasagne which was really tasty and was served with a really good mixed salad. Portion was just right. We went on a midday lunchtime and it was reasonably quiet. Friendly service.

I went here after arriving very early on an overnight flight and this location was the only place open at 7am. I was pleasantly surprised by the massive breakfast and good coffee that made for the perfect start to my early day. I will certainly be going back for another breakfast visit before I leave town.
