We came here most days during our 7 night stay in Akureyri for hot chocolate and a slice of their delicious cakes. It is a very cute and quaint little café. The staff are ever so helpful and we loved it!

At random find walked into this place and had a great little lunch deal with soup and quiche à volonté and delicious cake afterwards. Comfortable setting and easygoing little cafe.

Great atmosphere and excellent desert. Best cappuccino I've had in Iceland. Friendly service. A home run for sure.

By this stage we were beginning to feel how expensive Iceland is so had a delicious cup of coffee each, then shared a large piece of cake, which was in fact more than enough. A nice place to people watch and it's an interesting building.

After a whale watch trip you'll be hungry so be sure to stop by this great hipster bar in Husavik! Chocolate cakes are amazing. Cosy outdoor and indoor setting.

This is just another rather ordinary coffee/lunch bar in Iceland. The coffee was just OK, and the typically Icelandic sweets were fairly enjoyable. Service was effective-without-too-much-friendliness. Harmless again.

We had decent coffees and relaxed comfortably here. Desserts on offer as well. Wifi available. What more does a traveller need?
