We read about this in the inflight magazine and went to see fir ourselves. Easy to find, off from the Main Street. Polite staff and helpful. Food not local but more American in style. The building is old and need of updating. Worth trying.

Lovely breakfast here, I ordered the truck and the portion was absolutely huge, I barely ate half of it. Found it somewhat expensive but considering the portion size it was good value for money. I wouldn’t recommend the hot chocolate, weak tasting and only lukewarm.

Great breakfast. Good location. Cool place. Expensive. So is every meal in Reykjavik! But when you are hungry, it’s a go to place.
