This bakery was a few blocks from the guesthouse we stayed in for 3 nights in Reyjkavik so it became our daily walk for breakfast. Their pastries and breads are delicious. I always chose the ham and cheese baked roll and a donut for my sweet tooth. They have a small deli area too with yogurt, drinks, egg salad, etc. Perfect for breakfast or lunch. Popular with the locals and tourists staying nearby.

You CANNOT miss this amazing bakery. It is listed as the oldest bakery in Iceland established in 1834. My wife is a donut Connoisseur and she flat out said these were the best she has eaten. The selection of fresh baked breads was indescribable. Don't miss the homemade jelly available too. Right a cross the street from Apartments4you.

We stopped in today and loved this place!!! Great service, savory aromas, and delicious foods. The friendly owner told us the interesting history of the Bernhoft Bakery and its various incarnations in downtown Reykjavik. The bakery has been its current spot since 1932. We love this place--it's right by the downtown shopping district, but a wee bit quieter and more intimate. The best of both worlds. Highly recommended!

Always love finding a great local bakery close by in Europe. This bakery was no exception and only 2-3 minute walk from Holt Hotel. Great takeaway sandwiches for daily excursions and as you would expect a wonderful selection of pastries and bread.....all at varying levels of deliciousness. Will miss you Bernhofts!

Stopped in to pickup pastries for breakfast. Difficult to choose among the many options. Friendly staff helped with selection. Clean, bright space. Delicious pastries and coffee.
