We had a very pleasant lunch here - really good value for Iceland, and that rarity - great tasting vegetarian food! They offer a very simple menu which changes daily, comprising a soup and a main course, but also have lots of excellent cakes. The nice thing was being able to have half-portions, even of the cakes - I had a lovely chocolate cake which was so rich I only needed a little. The calming music and eastern prints add to the atmosphere - we lingered over tea, reading and relaxing, never being made to feel we should leave.

This cafe was our favourite place to eat in Reykyavik and we went back there several times. They do a great, veggie main course every day which was a nice change from fish plus their chocolate fridge cake was the best I have ever tasted. The service was fantastic and the people who worked there always seemed pleased to serve tourists, unlike a lot of places we went to in Reykjavik. Our only complaint about the cafe is that they aren't open on Sundays so we weren't able to go for one last piece of cake!
