The Laundromat Cafe isn't a destination restaurant, it's a nice place to sit down and have a great breakfast or a pleasant lunch with a beer. Their food is uniformly good and their beer selection is fairly broad for Reykjavik. They're very family friendly. They have a play area downstairs. And, of course, they have a small laundromat.

This is probably the only place you can get your laundry done while holidaying in Reykjavik! The laundry is located downstairs - before you head down, ask the cafe staff for tokens.

Stopped for breakfast midweek as seemed to be very popular. The service as good and quick. Coffee was lovely, probably one of the best cups we had in iceland. The food was average and high priced. Average breakfast and I would probably look elsewhere for the price.

Dead bang in the city center of Reykjavik, Laundromat is a great place to hang, have a breakfast, lunch, dinner,coffee or a drink. Fairly priced for good service and a great meal, I can absolutely recommend this place for morning, afternoon, evenings and late night visits.

Came here a couple of times on a visit to Iceland and loved this place. Perfect for lunch, great menu, reasonable prices, especially given the huge size of portions! Fantastic atmosphere, great mix of people. Staff lovely too.

Overpriced hamburgers, unfriendly staff and when we wanted to pay we were pointed around the entire bar towards someone else and everyone was too busy to take our money. Will not visit again.

As far as breakfasts go this place has great variety for decent price...for Iceland that is. Conveniently located downtown. Their bruch is really a combo platter of eggs, cheese, pancakes, juice, fruit, yoghurt. Another is basically same except add bacon and sausage. Funky decor. It was crowded but it has lots of tables. Even get a free refill on coffee...unheard... More

Cafe with a positive message well communicated with the decor, artwork and service. Come here to chill and socialize with friends. Or just to take in the ambience or take some fun pictures.

Definitely a quirky place, with the actual laundromat in the basement. Dinner portions were big and priced reasonably, but could have used a bit more seasoning. Staff didn't seem terribly interested in us, but were nice when we did interact with them.
