Breakfast service ends at 11am, then lunch begins (whoa, really really early). Though we were late, they gave us eggs, bread with jam, peanut butter and/or butter, excellent lattes. A group of business people came in for lunch and I have to say their food looked really good, though I wasn't quite ready for tomato soup, chicken and salad so... More

Adorable décor and tucked just off the main drag of downtown reykavik. My husband (who has a large appetite) and I shared a croissant, the chia porridge and one of the breakfast platters. It was all super fresh and delicious. Lots of food, we could barley finish it all!

Had breakfast here early one morning (after landing at 530am) as it was one of the few places open early for bfast. Let me tell you, the breakfast was amazing!!! An odd combo of foods compared to the typical North American breakfast but every part was amazing! Definitely would go back again!

An Icelandic friend told us about this place so we headed there for breakfast before a road trip out of the city. It was lovely! The atmosphere is warm and cozy, slight hipster vibe, filled with locals. The coffee is great, as most Icelandic coffee is. We all ordered either the breakfast platter or the brunch platter. The meals are... More

Came across Bergson Mathus while looking for somewhere for breakfast. Wasn't sure what to expect from the menu but WOW. A massive plate of fresh, health food arrived and there was plenty of it. The yogurt and granola was delicious, the bread scrumptious and the humus was so tasty. We were stuffed leaving. Wished we had another day here just... More

Excellent quick service and a good portion to get the day started. You'll see plenty travellers who will have an early start if the day and feel free to talk to others. They'll have plenty feedback or you'll have some for them. Quick service too.

We arrived late in the day at Reykjavik, and as my wife is vegetarian it was important we found where she could eat. Bergson Mathus appeared in a list of vegetarian friendly restaurants, and it happened to be the closest to our hotel (15 minute walk). The lights were on but it was empty, but the door was open. We... More

We came for lunch after our free walking tour. The food is super fresh, healthier compared to all the other food available- fresh salads, soups, vegetarian and meat/fish dishes. The staff our super friendly and serves is fast. This food is also relatively good value for money compared to other places plus it's fresh and not deep fried chips/burgers/hot dogs!... More
