The Reykjavík Grapevine is proud to present: The Best Of Reykjavík 2016! Earlier this summer we published our Best Of magazine to help you, our beloved readers, find the very best places this little city has to offer. You can use the info to plan your schedule, or even as a fun experiment to see how your tastes align with those of ours.
Kaffi Vínyl has wedged itself into the growing vegetarian scene in 101, becoming not only the best vegetarian place, but also the best vegan place, with a completely vegan menu. Kaffi Vinyl sticks to its guns when it comes to coffee, too—try their oat milk latte and cappuccino. We didn’t know oats could be milked, but wherever that elusive oat-teat was hidden, we’re glad they found it.
Gló is so popular they serve it on Icelandair flights. The menu varies from night to night between vegetarian dishes, raw foods, and the occasional chicken dish. It’s the place you go on Monday at lunch, when you still have the energy to believe you are going to turn over a new leaf and eat healthy.
Bike Cave is on the list again. It’s definitely gaining traction in the dining scene downtown. Try it out. If it lasts, you’ll be one of the firsts. If it doesn’t, you can say to everyone, “You should have been there, man.”
