I had eaten at Laundromat Cafe during a previous visit and it was worthwhile enough for a return trip.
This place is a fairly new restaurant after change of ownership/decor/concept.
Food was average, service was average, atmosphere is average, but the price was extremely high. And that’s coming from someone living in Norway who is used to high prices. We came for breakfast. Too-sweet chai latte. Relatively unseasoned meals. Sorry, but just not worth it.

Hello Ewillmore.

I'm sorry to hear about your experience.

We are proud of our menu and staff but mistakes can sometimes happen, hopefully you will give us another change to impress.

We are a new restaurant, and unfortunately things aren't always perfect.

Stopped in here to kill some time and had some of the best soup of my trip. The Thai inspired fish soup is similar to a Tom Yum, but creamy and with noodles. It was absolutely delicious, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Went out looking for a a breakfast/brunch option after experiencing a rubbish breakfast buffet in our hotel. We ended up going every morning. We had pancakes with bacon and bliberries and Reyjavic toast, we also tried the mix and match cooked breakfast. Food excellent and service was great as well, missing it already.

We visited twice during our stay, initially for dinner and then for a beer during happy hour. Great food for dinner and friendly service with warm atmosphere. Good value for Iceland. We also chilled with a couple of draught beers during happy hour. Would recommend.
