Staying at the Hotel Cabin so we walked to this place for dinner. About 5 mins walk thru a quiet neighborhood. Nice local place. Great atmosphere. Good service. On the night we were there, a local singer was at the bar performing so it was...a bit crowded. We had the vegan bake and lamb burger. Both were really good. Couldn’t finish the vegan bake, it was pretty filling. The lamb burger was great too except it tasted more like lamb bbq (it had a bbq flavor). Great local Viking beer. Would’ve loved to have eaten here again. Portions are a good size and prices are what you’d expect when you eat out in Iceland.More

Bad service and cold food. Ten minutes between that everybody got their food. Asked to take the plates so we could have our coffee on a clean table, but only two of four plates was taken.

I was the only person in the entire restaurant, therefore how is it possible to cook poorly? I was saddened by the chefs lack of love of food. Evidently owners are saving costs by a unexperienced untrained chef. Total disaster as you get hit and...miss style cooking. In a brunch eggs should be cooked exquisitely. However the eggs were so extremely over cooked not runny yolk, if I was to throw them against a wall they would bounce back; that overcooked. Even McDonald's or plane food is arguably better than what I was served. No real Chef cooks food like that.More

Supposting local business in these times is crucial. There was not much traffic, but we had to wait about one hour after our meal. Asked once where my meal was. Answer, there are my orders at the moment. NO. in the end the waiter came...and asked what we had ordered! Shortly after that the food finaly came. Conclusion, good food, bad service.More

Horrible coffee Unproffesional service, with bad attitude. Every single table was dirty. Food were eatable, except that Salamon sandwich contained twice more salt then salamon itself. There are way better places in Reykjavik. Do not recommend.More

Friendly neighborhood atmosphere, this place is good for lunch, coffee, dinner and also serves booze. What more could you need!? They sell micro roast coffee beans and you can bring your own packaging, the vegan menu is great and there’s a kids corner with toys...and books. As Scandinavian as it gets.More

We stayed in the Laekur guesthouse. We loved the start of our day: the best bread in town from the bakery Braud & Co around the corner and top it off with a delicious cappucino here. Great music playlist and kind people too!

Went there with my wife on a sunday morning for brunch. The food was ok, but I have never paid such an amount for glass full of ice, only to minimize the juice- the staff told us, and undrinkable coffee, probably made early in the...morning. When we talked to the staff they said that they never heard anything like that before, and it looked like they did not care. Go spend your money somewhere else- we will!!!More

I have been a few times lately at Kaffi Lækur, with family and friends, and each time it has been a pleasure. No "fancy" food but very tasty and for all tastes, shawarma pizza (simply delicious), chicken pizza, brunch, or just a cup of coffee...or tea. The place is large and I just loved the children's corner, probably one the most adapted in restaurants. Kaffi Lækur serves also the hotel on the upper floor, but it is mainly frequented by Icelanders, families or friends together.More
