Fantastic place!! Reasonable priced (as reasonable as can be in Iceland) the Indian chicken sandwich and chicken wraps we had are delicious!! Highly recommend visiting!! If we was to return think this would be our local! They offer a wide variety of items! Pizzas/kebabs/sandwhichs/wraps and many more...

We stumbled upon this cafe whilst exploring Reykjavik . The cappuccino was one of the best I've had ( and I'm fussy with my coffee!) . Great cosy atmosphere and snacks at reasonable prices for Reykjavik .

Needed a quick snack before going on a Northern Lights tour. Popped in here and had the beef donna whilst my wife had the Tom Kai soup. The donna was German style in a large ciabatta with all the trimmings and the soup was huge and had rice, chicken and veg in it. Both were satisfying and took only a... More

Bought a decent kebab at a reasonable (for downtown Reykjavik) price on a day when many restaurants were closed. It was tasty, it was filling, I'd go back again.

I waited in line for an hour and a half on Christmas Eve hoping finally I would get a decent meal : 3 sandwiches and 2 donuts! 2 of the sandwiches were really bad and one was okay which my husband and I ended up sharing. The donuts were okay but not great. I ended up paying more than 4000... More

We had a panini and kebab. Like the rest of Iceland, the prices are ridiculous for food and drinks but surprisingly the food want as good as we expected. The panini was ok but nothing special- it stopped me feeling hungry. My husband had to add quite a lot of salt and pepper to his kebab which is never a... More

We were out exploring the city on our first day in Reykjavik and came across Durum by chance. The tea and coffee was excellent and their specialty sandwiches were generous and delicious. I chose the Greek salad sandwich and my husband, the kebab. I especially loved the toasted bread crust that looked more like a waffle but was in fact... More

We came to this restaurant on our first and last day..so perfect since they are open for breakfast..The staff is very nice and the coffee is excellent! It was never super crowded both times we came in, making the atmosphere nice and comfortable.

Food was good again but staff not very friendly this time. And with the falling value of the £ everything was soooo much more expensive this year.

Items on the menu include pizza, salad, sandwiches, soups, fish, chicken, French fries, wine and beer and coffee, tea or chocolate. We ordered pizza and Panini sandwich. The food arrived pretty fast and was very hot. The pizza dough was not crisp. They probably cooked the pizza in the microwave but I do not know that for sure. Again, dig... More
