OUTSTANDING food! - Edit

This is, hands down, one of my top three vegan restaurants, no joke! And I live in Portland, Oregon where it’s the vegan Mecca. The combination of ingredients were surprisingly good and also it was a very filling meal. I love the vibe as well!

Nice top up afternoon meal to fuel our adventures in Reykjavik - Edit

This lovely vegan cafe has everything you could possibly need! Fabulous music playing, old vinyls to browse through, newspapers to read from the 1980's and a full vegan menu!

The staff are absolutely lovely and happy to make recommendations! We opted for a Mile High Club Sandwich each, which consisted of multiple layers of bread containing portobello mushroom, avocado, lettuce & tomato, vegan cheese & crispy onion, with a light blanket of paprika to add some extra flavour, every bite tasted different!

The desserts looked amazing too but we had plans later on and were nicely full from our food.

Pros: All vegan, Lots of options including meals, desserts & drinks, Friendly staff ans atmosphere

Cons: A bit pricer than other restaurants in the area

Fantastic place! - Edit

I wish I had a place like this close to where I live! We went to Kaffi Vinyl during our stay in Reykjavik and absolutely loved it. Very stylish cafe with a great vibe and friendly & helpful staff. Coffee and food was delicious (we had the Lasagna). They also have some treats for the sweet tooth (that day I think they had muffins, a cake and a cashew fruit cream dessert), but unfortunately I was stuffed so couldn't try any of them. Well worth a visit - will defo go there again before heading home.

Pros: Good food & drinks, Loved the atmosphere , Friendly staff

Cosy cafe with great music and beautiful food - Edit

This is such a gorgeous place. I ordered the garlic toasted ciabatta with fried mushrooms, guac, balsamic glaze, parmesan and oumph. It came with a little nutty salad which was also very welcome. It was a really decent serving and I enjoyed every single bite. The café itself is so charming: really cosy and bright with -naturally- fantastic and eclectic records playing in the background. If I had the time and the money I would return until I had tried everything on the menu!

Pros: All vegan so you can eat everything on the menu, Great Music, Delicious food

Gorgeous vegan food in quirky surroundings. - Edit

Loved this place - nice selection of dishes, friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend it even if you’re not vegan. I had the lasagne - the cashew cheese was the best Parmesan alternative I’ve ever tried. My partner had the quinoa burger. Both came with spinach salad with nuts and seeds. And then there’s boxes of records to buy!

Don't miss it! - Edit

Fantastic dinner in a cozy coffee house! We loved everything we ordered. The burger was outstanding, and the wrap of the day was one of the best flavor/texture combos I ever tasted. The service was top notch too. We ordered too much, and left stuffed -- in a good way.

Pros: Cozy atmosphere, Nice service, Delicious!

Vegan in Reykjavik? You have to go here - Edit

Yes Iceland is expensive. That's why in our 8 days in Iceland my girlfriend and I made our own meals to survive financially and then for 2 lunches treated ourselves at Kaffi Vinyl - and you should do the same!! What a fantastic place. The menu is small like everyone has said but I would happily order every meal on there if I could. Our first visit we had the mile high club sandwich and the lasagne to share. Both were exquisite. Our second time we had the kawaii sandwich with oumph (a Swedish mock meat), and the wrap of the day which was filled with 'chilli non carne' - again both meals were phenomenal. I couldn't fault them; I was even a massive fan of the odd spinach and jam salad! The vibe is great, vinyl continuously playing and everyone is just so chill. When you arrive just seat yourself and approach the counter to order and pay when you're ready. Oh we also got a peppermint cupcake each time too - so yum! Amazing Icelandic water is provided free of charge as well - all was good in the world when we were at Kaffi Vinyl. 10/10

Pros: All vegan. Vinyl everywhere, such cool vibes. Open

Cons: I'm not going to say it's expensive because it's n

don't be put off by the appearance - Edit

This is an ex-shoe shop with a few dead/dying plants in the window and boxes of second hand vinyl outside, but inside is a real gem. The decor and furniture are mismatched charity- shop chic, but of course this is not unusual for vegan/alternative venues. The clientelle are a good mix of locals and tourists. They offer a small menu of main meals ( wraps, burger, noodles, club sandwich, salad, lasgne) with a changing daily special, backed up by various bar snacks ( the "breads and spreads" were excellent) and a soup of the day. The food is really good and the prices reasonable, for Iceland. Happy hour is from 16.00 to 19.00 and their beer and wine prices in this slot were the best we found anywhere. The staff are a friendly bunch. There are twin decks on the go at all times, so the soundtrack is variable, but you can always choose and play a disc yourself during the day or in the evening if the DJs aren't around. We found this place early in our trip and it became our regular haunt when we were in town. How refreshing it was to have a proper vegan cafe/bar open seven days a week and not have to scratch around looking for edible nosh.

Pros: good, surprisingly tasty, vegan fare, Reasonable price., Good atmosphere.

Cozy - Edit

A cute, cozy café, Kaffi Vinyl has a decent sized menu to choose from. I had gotten a wrap. It was just ok. It wasn't bad by any means, but I wasn't blown away by it either. I felt like I spent a lot of money for what I got.

Pros: 100% Vegan

Cons: Expensive

Amazing!!! Multiple trips every time we visit Iceland! - Edit

All vegan perfection. Worth a stop (or two or three 😍). Avocado 🥑 toast and coffee in the morning and lasagna for lunch and dinner are our favorites. But everything we’ve had has been soon good!

Only had breakfast - Edit

We only had breakfast there but they did not have much - just toast with a choice of toppings. Decent coffee. The lunch and dinner options look great in the photos but we didn't make it there for that.

what the hell was that about? - Edit

This place is a disaster. Went in there on a Friday night with 3 friends. The staff ignored us to the point where they were tripping over us just to keep ignoring us. Some goofball live DJ was spinning records, because god forbid full of people crashing into each other not have more loud noises for no reason. Then they told us the kitchen was closed. The kitchen hours aren’t published anywhere on planet earth, so it would have been tough to argue if they weren’t literally serving someone food right in front of us. Turned around and left. Please someone else do a vegan restaurant.

Cute cafe - Edit

Very funny cute cafe with delicious food. My husband had the Thai noodles which he scoffed straight down and I had the mile high club sandwich. The sandwich was delicious just a bit too much mustard for my liking. Next time I would like to try the lasagne.

Best vegan meal I found in Iceland! - Edit

After 11 days of travel in Iceland we found this gem in Reykjavik. I had the peanut noodles and the meal was great. The music from the resident DJ was also very nice. The ambience was pleasant too. After being offered no more than onion soup, or lentil stew in 11 days in Iceland round trip this was very refreshing and at last I could eat a full tasty meal!

Pros: Good position close to downtown Reykjavik, Great tasty meal, Good music form the DJ

Cons: none
