Directions to Jómfrúin - Danish Open Sandwiches

Snugly located in a great spot in downtown Reykjavik is Jómfrúin (e. The Virgin). Seating 80 guests, you can expect it to be rather busy during lunch hours, as the place is especially popular with the locals.

Established in 1996, and now run by one of the original founders' son, Jómfrúin is a smørrebrød restaurant in the Danish tradition, offering the popular Danish open-faced sandwiches along with a selection of hot dishes. If you're not familiar with smørrebrød, rest assured, it's not only delicious but also comes with a vast variety of toppings so everyone should be able to find something to suit their palate. For example, the 'H.C. Andersen's Favourite' comes on a rye bread with butter, crisp bacon, liver pate, port aspic, horseradish and parsley, while the 'Sunrise' offers a French bread with butter, Blue Cheese, tomato and raw egg yolk. More traditional sandwiches are also available, such as the 'Smoked Salmon' and the 'Herring with Egg', where you can choose from five different types of herring, served with egg, tomato, onion and dill.

Jómfrúin is a great on a warm summer day as it opens out to a sheltered little square where guests can enjoy the open air along with an ice-cold Tuborg (Danish beer, it's great!). To top it off, during the summer, you can expect an open-air jazz concert on Saturdays from 3-5 in the afternoon. These events have lately become hugely popular, so arriving early is advised.

Jómfrúin is a lunch and afternoon place during the week and serves dinner as well from Thursday to Saturday.

After eating a delicious open-faced sandwich at Jómfrúin, you can walk over to Harpa Concert Hall or visit Austurvollur and the Parliament
