I wanted to stop in as I loved the cute decor with the books wrapping around the bar. We ordered coffee, hot chocolate, and their Skyr dessert which came with fresh blueberries and crumbled white chocolate mixed in - which was to die for! But...More

This place is super kids friendly. The burgers we got were very juicy and tasty. Their juices were very good also. The lower level has a play area for the little ones. It was a very cute place to go if you have little ones.

Fun and quirky diner. Atmosphere and ambiance good. Prices were pretty average for Reykjavik (about £20 for a burger and fries) and the food was ok. Good place to go for a reasonably priced meal and fun surroundings.

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...More

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. Machines are easy to use (there are 4 washers and 4 dryers available),...More
