Warm and inviting atmosphere and the food is really, really good. The pastries and pizzas are almost too good and I swear, part of my weight-gain in Iceland can be directly attributed to this place! When I get back to Akureyri, this is going to be the first place I head to....

Anyhow, they also have a sweet record player, and encourage... More
