Travel Experiences: Iceland's gems (Pt 2)

This is a continuation of my three posts about the wonderful country that is Iceland. Check out my sightseeing recommendations here, and directions to the 'secret' swimming pool here. Hope you have fun and enjoy your visit! In the meantime, take note of some of Reykjavik's best foodie spots...

WHAT/WHERE TO EAT
Hamborara Bullan
Best burgers in town - very famous and serve good old dirty burgers with chips by the harbour.
Geirsgata 1

Check out my post about the new-ish London branch which has been getting rave reviews since its opening (Tommi's Burger Joint).




Baejarins Beztu Pylsur
Another famous tourist spot where you can have a nice Scandinavian hot dog...but you must ask for 'everything' on top!
Tryggvagotu 1




Laundromat
Fairly new, very American but nice cafe and restaurant for breakfast and lunch or just a good smoothie.
Austurstraeti 9



Laekjarbrekka
One of the best restaurants in the country, serving everything from delicious lobster soup, steak and sea food to whale and puffin as some unusual dishes to try. It's more of a high end restaurant but great if you want to splurge a little on your last day.
Bankastraeti 2


Beautiful

Puffin and whale!

Svarta Kaffi
One of my favourite places...they serve hearty home made soups INSIDE huge pieces of bread. YUM!!
Laugavegi 54




Stofan
A lovely cosy cafe with a great atmosphere. You will find this place fills with locals day to night drinking coffee, tea and beer and enjoying a good book or just chilling with friends on one of the big couches.
Adalstraeti 7





Kaffismidja Islands
Regarded as the best coffee in town, this cute little vintage style cafe is owned by two ladies that actually roast the coffee right in front of you! The warm, friendly atmosphere and endless smiley faces will make you feel at home, whilst the sound of coffee roasting and laughter will make you feel very, very comfortable! Their coffee is sourced ethically from farmers in Colombia and Nicaragua, and you can pick from three different brewing methods.
Karastigur 1



A cool little bar on 2-3 levels where all the trendy kids hang out (unless I've missed out on the latest trends...). The music is always great and the drinks flowing...you'll lose yourself in good company and won't be able to tell the time if you visit during the summer when the sun never sets! For real!
Bergstadarstraeti 1
