Decent (Expensive) Food, Limited Options - Edit

I ate a Bryggjan Brugghus while visiting Reykjavik, and I chose it largely because I love microbreweries and they have some vegan options. We sat in the dining section, without realizing their was a bar section with a different menu. I had the baked carrots entree, which included portabellos, kale, and barley, while my husband had the oven roasted cauliflower and sweet potato fries. It was all tasty, but I really felt like we needed something else for a meal, preferably something with protein. For the beer, they were out of their IPA, so we had a local beer not brewed by Bryggjan Brugghus (Leifur Nordic saison, which is great). We also each had a cocktail, and those were great. Overall, I had a great time, and it was nice to have a fancier dining experience in Reykjavik, but it was definitely not my favorite vegan meal.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, Some Vegan Options

Cons: Expensive, Limited Vegan Options

Gastro pub with some vegan options - Edit

This place is a fancy beer bar near the water. I think it'd be a nice date spot, but the vegan food is limited and the price tag is heavy.

We got the vegan club, which was really just a typical veggie sandwich with avocado, lettuce, tomato, etc. The bread was fresh and the shoe string french fries were good.

Definitely worth checking out if you're interested in beer, they have a lot of options and that upscale beer-sniffer vibe. If you could care less about beer, eh, you can skip it and not miss out on anything.

Pros: Vegan options, Happy hour

Cons: Pricey, Few options

Vegan club sandwich with sweet potato fries! - Edit

That was about the only vegan option on the menu - fairly expensive (about 2600 ISK?) but the plate was satisfying. The sweet potato fries came with the sandwich and was the best part, crispy and just delicious. The sandwich was kinda small, two slices of white toast with avo, zucchini, tomato and salad. Nothing special, they could have used more exiting ingredients. All in all tasty.

The waiter at the bar was friendly as he told us the sandwich came with fries (it didn't say so on the menu so first we ordered fries as a side dish, but then didn't take them as we were informed they were included). And there was plenty :) They charge extra for sauce/dip for the fries, my partner took one, but it probably wasn't vegan (didn't ask bc he's vegetarian).

Nice atmosphere, they have a wing for "bar food" and a fine-dining salon (looked really fancy). It's also a micro brewery so they had some nice beer choices that change with the brews.

Pros: Good sweet potato fries, Micro brewed beers, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Few vegan options, Fairly expensive

Nice vegan brunch - Edit

Their vegan brunch is very nice, but I wasn't really full after it and I felt it lacked pancakes or something sweet.

In same building as the Maritime museum - Edit

The vegan options are clearly marked on the menu. We had the vegan mushroom tacos and veg club sandwich. Both were pretty tasty but the taco fillings were not evenly distributed throughout the tacos so splitting between two people wasn't optimal. Really tasty beer with a good happy hour.

Pros: Vegan options, Friendly staff, Happy hour

Cons: Limited menu (starters) at non-peak hrs

good vegan options and beer! - Edit

We visited in december and had a delicious holiday ale. I could really go for another. A short distance from the city center, but worth the hike. Visit the whale museum just two blocks away.

the bread to start was great. they brought humus instead of butter to be vegan. They all spoke english well and understood what vegan meant.

Sandwiches were great as were the sweet potato fries. I could have eaten an entire plate of them.

Pros: delicious beer, awesome fries, clearly labeled vegan
