I love breads and pastry. Perhaps other bakeries make it just the same way or even better but this is still my favourite bakery in Iceland. The current location is the third one I remember.

Stopped in for breakfast and there was so much to choose from it was difficult! The pastry was very good. It's small on the inside but there is window seating.

We went this weekend. Very good for a quick takeaway breakfast. Great for breakfast on the road. Lovely sandwiches to take some lunch. Really nice tea and coffee. Beautifully pastries.

We stayed at a place down the road, so it was nice and close for me to get some breakfast for the entire family. The selection was good, the prices were typical and the pastries itself tasted very good.

We learned about this bakery after talking to other guests at our hotel. The prices at this bakery were much more reasonable than any other bakery we've been to in Reykjavik. It's a little off the main drag but not far and an easy 5 minute walk. They still had a decent selection at 4pm on a Saturday. The staff... More

We stayed across the road from this bakery, and went in there every day for 4 days. Everything we tried was delicious - particularly the ham and cheese croissants. Coffee was an auto machine and very ordinary. But the funniest thing was the consistently grumpy staff - I took it as a challenge to smile and be extra friendly to... More
