Best Veggie Burger

Kaffihús Vesturbæjar

Melhagi 20

Kaffihús Vesturbæjar, also known as Kaffi Vest, is nestled in the 107 postcode, and has become a hip spot for Reykjavík’s west-side movers and shakers. Choosing the best veggie burger was, surprisingly, one of the most heated debates this time around for our Best Of magazine. Kaffi Vest wins by having not just one, but two great choices. Of these, our favourite is a bean-based burger in crunchy breadcrumbs, served with rosemary potato wedges and an avocado-based mayo-style dip. It’s plain delicious, whether you’re vegan or not.


Runners Up

Block Burger

Skólavörðustígur 8

Block Burger makes the top three once again. Their soy-based vegetarian burger with cheese is the type of veggie burger even carnivores will love. It’s full of earthy, meaty flavour, and feels like comfort food. Order this with delicious crispy fries and you’ll devour it like you never gave up meat.



Bike Cave

Einarsnes 36

Bike Cave is the hippest new place on the block. It’s been described as the best place to get a “messy vegan burger.” This means you get to feel all the comfort and tactile pleasure of a pulled pork sandwich without the shameful joy of murder.
