Stopped off here for a light lunch as part of our road trip from Reykjavik. Very friendly place with simple tasty light bites such as soup and sandwiches. A really tempting selection of cakes to go with your coffee too!

Good for your early morning cappuccino and a read of the newspapers. Lots of calorific baked goods and desserts if you're tempted too. Staff very courteous and chatty! Cosy spot and good coffee.
