We had dessert here twice. Once for gelatto and the other time for the crepes. Bot were awesome. It is off of the main street so it is not packed but it is busy. The flavors were great and the service was very good. We'll be back again for sure.

My husband and I visited Eldur and Is on our first night in Reykjavik and loved it! I had a nutella crepe that was just as good as the ones you can get in Paris. My husband had the mint chocolate ice cream in a cone, which was delicious. We then drove around the entire country over the next two... More

Although you may be cold, this place is definitely worth grabbing a scoop. Great selection of flavors and the staff is very pleasant. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy your selection and they even have pitchers of water on hand to quench your thirst afterwards.

Small place, went at 9pm, there was almost no one so service was quick. Had two scoops of ice cream in a cup (around 590kr). The flavors are good, but the choice is a bit limited for an ice cream place (maybe 12 flavors?). I wonder if they rotate the flavors. I heard Icelanders love icecream and that there are... More

it was raining outside and I walked into the small ice cream shop downtown. I found a cozy place with beautiful girls smiling at work and two U.S. travelers who improvised playing the harp and ukulele. the owner, Aurelio, is a helpful and personable man and prepares delicious crepes. I was chatting with him and his assistant Nico all night,... More

I recommend there crepes with nutella and nuts. Together with their Cappuccino it brings you a nice atmosphere and good mood.

We just went there for some coffee and thee, but never the less we found it a very fine experience. There aren't that many places were service comes first. Cosy little place with nice atmosphere and it looked as if many people loved the 'crepes'. Here they know how to please clients, are most friendly and that's why we say:... More
