    We came on a Saturday night, Italian night but the menu was actually their sourdough pizza night which is normally Wed & Tues. and they had only had pizza and one chef salad option.

    The half sandwich and half soup of the day offer is pretty much always a hit. Egg florentine from the brunch menu is amazing.

    Spaghetti with lamb ragu and fennel was fantastic

    Very cosy and lovely little place. Had the pesto and eggplant pizza and the chef's salad; I kid you not when I say that salad tasted so much better than the pizza. And that pizza was amazing!

    Steak&eggs were really good, cappuccino wasn't. Burrito was missing some spiciness. I liked the vibes in that cafe.

    Disappointed! this place isnt the best.... The steak sandwich was average, fish stew bread was delicious but too salty - ended up drinking 2 bottles of water!

    Pretty out of the way (especially in the snowy winter) but their spinach and roasted eggplant/sweet potato sandwich is really good and extremely fresh. Their sourdough bread is incredible.

    If you manage to get a seat at this popular spot, you won't be disappointed. Get the green eggs and ham – it's absolutely delightful.

    Best place for brunch. Opens at 11am. Expect to wait a bit for a table. Not cheap, but you won't need to eat for the rest of the day. Recommendation: Steak and eggs

    Stop messing around, get the eggs Florentine a la coocoo - divine blue cheese sauce. You'll never want hollandaise again. Bonus: larger bathroom is as big and well decorated as an NYC 1 bedroom split.

    Eggs Florentine alla CooCoo is a must! The blue cheese sauce and locally sourced sourdough sets it apart!

    They only have brunch during the weekend. It's only sandwich and soup during the other days. 😕 wifi: iloveyou

    Very friendly staff and amazing space. It's not right in the city center but definitely worth the walk. Turkey sandwich was great.

    Busiest weekend brunch in Reykjavík, but a good sign of quality. Get in early or a book a table for taco tuesday dinner. Arguably the best sourdough in Reykjavík, second to Sandholt.

    I can confidently recommend the "Steik and eggs". If you feel hungry add the bacon and avocado option!

    Come here on the weekend if you can only come once for the brunch is to die for. Come again if you can in the week; the sandwich and soup deals are nearly as excellent!

    Had the chicken pesto sandwich and herbal tea here. Both were excellent. Cozy place to wait for the rain to pass. There is a cheese shop and ice cream parlor on the same block that are also great.

    Lovely small place down at the harbor. I have been there twice for Brunch, once with steak and once with omelette, loved the food and the service! PS: Their home baked sour dough bread is the best.
