Great place with lots of delicious sandwiches and cakes. Their sourdough bread is great, as well as their hot chocolate. Would come there again for lunch.

This cafe offers various meal types and has great pastries and bread. I ate a ham and cheese sandwich on sour dough which was excellent and had a fried egg on the side. Service was VERY good too!

Like most food in Iceland, it's expensive. 2 coffees, 2 cappucino and two muffins was about $30 USD
