Our flight arrived early Saturday morning. After getting our care and driving to Reykjavik, we found very few options for breakfast that were open at that hour. Bergson was and we are thankful. Big plentiful plates of flavorful breakfast. Quick and delicious.

Came here for brunch after reading a few reviews. We had the brunch platter which was so good and kept us full until evening. Everywhere is expensive so cost is what you expect to pay anywhere. Lovely.

The food is precious and healthy and the atmosphere relaxed. The children had great time at the child corner. Friendly staff.

We were hoping to have breakfast or brunch but missed breakfast menus by 30 minutes. They only serve breakfast until 11 weekdays and brunches are all day during weekend. Lunch menus did not disappoint. They have very small menu, only 4-5 dishes. These dishes are prepared ahead and are displayed on the counter. We had sweet potato soup and lasagna.... More

We choose Bergsson Mathus as they were open and our plane landed at 4am. By the time we got to the restaurant it was 7am and the friendly staff were ready for us. The food was simple, elegant and delicious. I had a sun-dried tomatoes paste that I still think about to do this day! We loved it so much... More

I was just in Reykjavik for a week with some friends. Every day that we had enough time to eat breakfast somewhere else other than our hotel we walked to this place. The breakfast was phenomenal and fairly priced by reykjavik standards. The cafe is cozy, dimly lit and calming. If you're a coffee fan, get the cappucino. It is... More

So in a City that doesn't seem to yet have a breakfast culture, which is strange considering the early start for so many tours, this was a great find. Cosy and welcoming and open early enough to get a good feed in before heading out on a tour this is the place to come to. The menu is quite limited... More
