Popped in here for coffee and cake as near the City Hall and pond. Nice coffee choice of apple strudel or cheesecake- we went for the cheesecake which was delicious. Portions large enough to share between two given expense of Iceland for UK visitors. Clearly popular place for brunch with both tourists and locals and the food looked great.

So far, this little restaurant has not disappointed either time we visited. A hearty lunch and a substantial dinner seem to be their trademarks. Located on the side of the building that houses the Kvosin Hotel in the heart of the city of Reykjavik, they seem to do a very brisk take away business, although there were ample tables for eating in.
Order at the counter and the food is delivered hot to the table. Specials change daily and showed a real effort on the part of the chef to offer good, hearty, home-cooked comfort food. One side dish -- a vegetable and pineapple salad -- was "just something that the chef concocted", but wow was it delicious!
Most entrées were in the 2400 ISK price range.
This café-restaurant is only open from breakfast until 7 PM, we were told, so if dinner is on your agenda, get there on the early side to catch them open.

Stopped here for brunch. Very busy and with good reason. Great choice of breakfast/brunch options. Had smoked salmon with egg and sourdough bread which was excellent.

Our flight arrives into Reykjavík super early at 4am After buying duty free booze and picking up our rental car, we arrived at Bergsson Mathis right at 7am- their opening time. They were welcoming and ready at 7am. The food and the bread was delicious. Expect typical Icelandic pricing.
