I adored this restaurant’s fresh take and unique food combinations. My husband also remarked about the ambiance: even as the restaurant began to fill with patrons, we were never rushed away from our table. The kitchen kept the courses spread out so we could digest, talk, and enjoy the experience.If you are looking to celebrate a special vacation as you travel through Iceland, I cannot recommend Von Mathús enough.
Breakfast is the meal that most frequently poses a challenge when I dine out as a vegan. Pastries, pancakes, and waffles abound, often leaving me with few choices aside from fruit. I hoped to find a special way to mark our first wedding anniversary while abroad, but did not hold out hopes for a vegan breakfast. So imagine my surprise when after just five minutes of searching, my husband and I stumbled upon Von Mathús. It quickly became our favorite meal of the trip, and I will happily argue that it is the best vegan brunch in Reykjavik!
This restaurant offers a three course vegan brunch menu and is just a few kilometers outside of Reykjavik’s city center.Plus, the price point met our expectations for an upscale Sunday brunch. The total cost, for both of us to have the price fixed brunch came out to 7059.90 ISK. At the current exchange rate, this is about 68 USD. While pricey, it is comparable to the cost of brunch for two in my hometown.
Not only that, but their menu boasted “vegan Icelandic waffles.” Are you kidding me!? Is there a better way to celebrate a wedding anniversary?
