There is one soup and one salad each day and the option is to have either or both, either half or full portion. There were a few vegan desserts also. I only tried the soup and salad, both were tasty.

Popped in quickly for some lunch before leaving on our last day in Iceland. So glad we did! Soup was amazing and served in just a minute or so. Although we had the small portion, it was very satisfying. Staff were very friendly. Highly recommended!

If you are looking for vegan food in Reykjavik, this is one of your few options. It's small and tucked away and we stumbled on it and were happy to do so. The food is great!

I put "vegetarian restaurant" into Google Maps and walked there. The menu changes daily so I asked the person cooking, who may have been the owner, and he recommended something. It was just VERY GOOD. Crowded so you can just ask to sit with others...More
