I had lunch here once a week sheik staying in Reykjavik. Staples as vegetable tarts and soups take-out or eat-in. Friendly and no frills, much better than überhyped Gló.

This is a wonderful quiet place with a limited option of either a soup or a main dish - or both. The staff is friendly and relaxed and the food is healthy and tasty. The cakes are very good too. Food can be served immediately...More

Went there looking for a vegetarian lunch, got a really nice lentil soup, with bread - which looked like whole wheat/ rye on the side. Friendly service. Good food.
