Lots of chocolate

After this visit to Kristjans, I have to believe Icelanders love chocolate! We tried the "half mani" which was a very thin white cake with a jam filling enveloped in marzipan and topped with chocolate. Surprisingly it wasn't too sweet! There were lots of familiar choices for desserts or... read more

As my predecessor who used this title, it's just ok. We went for breakfast, hot coffee, indifferent pastry, Atmosphere a bit lacking but nothing to put one off completely. Prices were reasonable. It's just a very straightforward bakery. I'd rather have gone to Kaffi Ilmur, opposite, where we'd had lunch the previous day. They, however, don't open as early, so... More

We got a pastry here in the afternoon and it was kind of hard and stale, but maybe that's just how bakeries operate -- they bake in the morning and it only tastes fresh then. Still, it wasn't a very exciting experience.

Scrumptious baked goods and very friendly service. We even got a few samples while we contemplated our decisions.

Nice little bakery, cosy and friendly with tasty food. The carmel cinnamon buns were good and the little buns and pizza was very good also.

If you need a quick breakfast with good coffee and Icelandic treats, this is the place to go. There are a couple of locations in Akureyri. Service is fast and prices good for Iceland.
