Had an incredible Sunday brunch at this spot in old Reykjavik. Their blueberry pancakes were the best I've had. Don't miss this spot for brunch.

The Coocoo's Nest

Don't miss this soup spot. Only two soups to chose from but you won't be sorry. We Had both the Hungarian beef soup and the cream of mushroom.

Svarta Kaffið

Sat outside during happy hour for a few drinks and avocado fries. Great place to hang with the locals on the weekend.

Sæta Svínið Gastropub

Famous hot dog stand.  I recommend getting your dogs fully loaded with the brown sauce, white sauce, and onions.

This was a 5-minute walk from our hotel I could not have been happier with the food.  Deb and I shared the lobster soup and I tried horse for the first time, which was DELICIOUS!  I know, I know, the Icelandic horses are cute.  Yes, but they’re also tasty.  Don’t judge me…try it for yourself you’ll never look at those horses the same.

Surf and Turf

Solid local food and drinks topped off with classic tunes.

Sæta Svínið Gastropub

For someone that loves food, this was one of the best introductions to Icelandic cuisine that I could have imagined.  The buffet was so good in fact, that I am nicknaming it, ‘The Buffet of Dreams!’  

Snaps Bistro
