We ate at Egill Jacobson for breakfast and we were highly impressed with the quality and taste of the food. The kid’s portion was very large and everything was absolutely delicious. Their marmalade and chocolate butter were also outstanding!

We went for breakfast on our one day in Iceland. We enjoyed our meals. Pancakes and breakfast burrito were our favorites. Service was okay but not great. We would go back again if ever in the area.

We went there for lunch and finally chose to eat the brunch. It was extremely good, in huge proportions and not that expensive for Reykjavik and for what we ate. Also the place is beautiful and warm. We highly recommend itMore
