The Hungarian meat soup was quite tasty. The restaurant was cozy and the service was very quick. I would definitely eat here again.

You can choose two types of soup. We were offered a choice between 2 cream based soups, cream of mushroom, which we didn't try and a creamy meatball. They come in a the most amazing bread bowl.

This place is certainly popular as we had to queue to wait for a table but it was well worth it. I've had soup served this way before (in a hollowed out bread cob) and always enjoyed it. There were 2 choices of soup and...More

We visited here twice on a recent trip. There are two soup options each day, one vegetable and one meat based. Absolutely delicious and the roll it is served in is really tasty. It is quite busy especially at the weekend so you may have...More

A tiny, family owned soup restaurant in the heart of Reykjavik. We are proud to be the first and the original "soup in bread" restaurant in Iceland. We've been serving soups in bread for over 20 years amd we love it. Please note: We do not take reservations, ever - but swing by and we will do our best to fit you in with smiles on our faces! :)
