As a vegan in travelling to Iceland, you'll find your options few and far between. This amazing little cafe has a set menu on a week by week basis and the food is 90% vegan. I think I saw one day out of 7 where there wasn't a vegan main meal. Today, we had eggplant/aubergine curry with rice and lettuce. Absolutely perfect. We finished with a vegan snickers dessert which was amazing. I'll definitely be paying them another visit whole I'm here.

Unlike Glo down-the-street, this adorable vegan treasure doesn't disappoint primarily because they choose to flavor their dishes. No wood tasting here! We had their lentil burgers and LOVED it. As an American, my only request is to serve the burger with buns, but stag patties just may be how the Icelanders like their burgers. Aside from that - just what a vegan needs in this town. We live next to Ananda Fuarna in San Francisco and are familiar with the home - style awesome cooking that permiates Sri Chimoy eatablishments, and this doesn't disappoint lemme tell ya. I showed up with my three toddlers, and they were all super nice and avuncular with them.

5 circles!

Was delighted to find this small vegetarian cafe. The menu is simple, so you have to surrender and go with the daily specials but my curry was delicious. Excellent cappuccino too. Only sorry I didn't go back for a second visit which I had fully intended to do. I got distracted by whale-watching however and therefore didn't get back to try the carrot cake :( Next time!

I had by far the best carrot cake I have ever tasted there, I tried my mum's chokolate cake as well and it was delicious. Can't wait to go back and try their food.
Very nice and reasonable café.
