A Nice Treat

Ice cream seems to be a national pasttime in Iceland and this was the best ice cream I had all trip. I enjoyed a cone of mint chocolate chip which was a cool blue color. The cone was diped in chocolate syrup and rolled in crushed chocolate. This is one not to pass by.

Walked by this place previously and we decided to head back for midday ice cream and drink. Glad we did. The ice creams my friends had went down a storm and I had a double espresso which was top quality. The lady told me about the coffees they do and asked about where we were from. The coffee was better... More

We popped in here as my mum, a vegetarian, was a bit peckish. She had a savoury crepe and I had a coffee, and we loved it so much we went back for a quick dinner another night. Great food and nice vibe - just wish we'd had chance to try some of their amazing looking ice cream.

Lovely sweet and savory bar for a good price. Staff are lovely and they take care when making the food. They also have a sticker chart for tourists showing where they have come from. Very interesting and welcoming

I needed an energy boost and decided on Hot chocolate and a Nutella with hazelnut crepe. They make them to order in the storefront window. Not only sweets but a great selection of vegetable choices. Clearly a big hit based on the PACKED house. Also a nice selection of gelato. I was there in off season.... I'll bet high season... More

We came across this cafe while exploring the town. The aroma from the open doorway attracted our attention first. On investigating further we saw the ice cream and crepes and that was that! On the first visit they were not to busy, but the second time it was rather busy, but by then we has learnt it was worth the... More

Ice cream with all the toppings. Dipped cones, blizzards, milkshakes, flavored hot chocolates, unique coffees and last but not least CREPES. The crepes are tremendous and plenty of eating (2 can split). They have every topping you could want (both sweet and savory) and this place is open until 10 or 11 most nights; great for a late night sweet... More

We ate one too many delicious crepes here during our stay! They offer both sweet and savory create-you-own combination crepes. My favorite was Nutella and mixed berries! We also discovered what a Daim cand bar is, which is a Scandinavian version of a Heath toffee bar. I tried peanut butter and bananas on a crepe, but the peanut butter was... More
