Personally I loved the steak and meal I had here but my friends said they didn't like the steak that much so I had to take it down from 5 to 4 stars. Service is... understaffed. They are running around trying to cover a lot...of tables and explain how to self serve to tourists, some of whom don't know how to use a tablet so they are putting the order in as well. I would totally go back. There may have even been a laudromat in the place....More

We had been here several years ago and it has not changed much since then. WE sat near a window and the service was very quick. Lovely coffee and chocolate chip cookie in what is a unique and slightly quirky decor.

We were traveling as a family of 6 and the first day in Reyjavik we came across the Laundromat Cafe. Super cute place with an eclectic vibe inside sort of like a library/bar. We sat at a large table by the window and were immediately...greeted by a great guy. The staff that were working that day were Gudren, Margret, and Halidorsdottir and they were all wonderful. We ordered several different items, from nachos, to fish and chips, salads and a sandwich, then the bartender talked us into a shot called Brennivin that he said tastes like rye bread................NOT LOL it was kinda dry and nasty tasting but that is just my opinion !! The restrooms were in the basement and they actually had small washing machines and dryers, so you can come do your laundry and have lunch at the same time !!! But beware its a super tiny room. You also want to look for food places that have a thumbs up sign in the window that indictaes that the place has been voted one of the best places to eat. This was a good experience for us to start our Iceland trip We also learned you do not get a bill you either pay when you order or after you eat you go to the counter tell them what you had and pay they are pretty much on an honesty policyMore

Walker in at random the night we got to Iceland. Order by QR code. Food and beer came quickly. Had to ask for water several times. Burger good but too much Mayo for my taste. Nachos were good.

At the end of a week in Iceland, Our family was ready for more options for breakfast. The laundromat was recommended to us and we had a great breakfast. The atmosphere is warm and very interesting and the menu had a good selection. We spent...the day touring Reykjavik and at the end our sons wanted to go back to the Laundromat for dinner. All of our food was great and we particularly enjoyed the chicken nachos. The service was very good too. Enjoy!More

I had the Laundromat Club (which was a great sized portion), my husband had the Fish and Chips which was delicious. It was a pity that a screaming child ruined the atmosphere of the evening.

I have loved and patron this place for so long. Even when the country was closed and there were no tourists around I would come here to support it. I have introduced so many of my friends to this place. So you get why I...am upset that my friend and I were denied sitting bc “there’s only two of you and that’s a table for four people” Ok first of all 4 people would only fit on that table if you’re packing them like sardines. Next, you should have let it be there. I was on my way out and asked my friend “would you like to try another place” and he grabbed me by the shoulder to stop me and make sure he made his point like excusing his behavior. Dude like how dare you invade my space but worse of all we were leaving. Why stop us to try and make your point further like excusing what you’ve already done. ITS DONE. so let me walk out. You don’t want to sit us there. Got it. So don’t dare put your grubby hands on me. SMH!More

Nice atmosphere. Informal cafe/restaurant where you can also make your laundry. And you find plenty of books around to kill the time in case the laundry is not ready

On our last day visiting Iceland we had a wonderful breakfast! We were greeted immediately by the manager/host with a big smile and a welcome! My husband had the “Clean Breakfast” - with eggs, yogurt, granola and fruit. I had avocado toast with a fried...egg, quinoa and arugula over sourdough toast. Wonderful combination. My daughter had a stack of pancakes. She’s been taste-testing hot chocolate all over Iceland and has awarded Laundromat Cafe as the Overall winner!More

Nearing the end of a 2 week trip to Ireland and Iceland, we had tired teens looking for comfort food. We're mostly vegetarian, which is tricky in Iceland. But this place had a great menu with plenty of options. The blueberry pancakes were incredible (and...they serve them all day). We also enjoyed the shakes, the guacamole, the fish & chips, and the fries. Just keep in mind that Iceland is expensive, so you'll be paying more than you're used to for this type of food. But it's worth it. Really nice staff, as well.More

Very efficient service. Big menu. Big issue was with poor customer service. Unfriendly staff. You order via an app on your table and food comes out very quickly.
