Located inside the BSI bus terminal, Fljótt og Gott is the most convenient place to grab coffee with muffins, pastries, hamburgers, sandwiches or Icelandic food like lamb soup before heading for a tour, to the airport or to your hotel. Fljótt og Gott means Fast and Tasty in Icelandic and you will get just that.
Décor and ambience
It has a drive thru counter and looks just like most American delis with a TV. The differences are the Icelandic menu and it looks cleaner than most of its counterparts in the US.
The men working at the counter spoke good English and were very friendly. During our visit most of the customers were travelers with large luggage having coffee and a quick bite.
Wi-Fi is available at the bus terminal. There are plenty of clean bathrooms.
Coffee: Type, price and taste
Fljótt og Gott is one of the few places in Iceland to eat sheep head. We didn’t try that but had the next best thing- the must try Icelandic lamb soup called Kjotsupa. Our coffee for the day was an Americano served in a black cup and saucer. The Americano is darker and thicker than Starbucks.
Along with lamb soup and coffee were a chocolate muffin and a sandwich with a total price of 6800 krona (about $60), a light breakfast for four.
How to get there
BSI is the main bus terminal in Reykjavik. It was our drop off point by the airport shuttle bus and also our departure pick up point. Unless you are traveling by taxi or private transportation you will be passing through BSI.
