Perfect little ice cream shop!

The reason we stopped in was simple: the delicious smell coming from the shop as we walked by. We decided to give it try. The service was great and the ice cream on a cold February day was perfect. Great way to take a break from being pelted by the rain/snow mix outside. I would definitely stop by... read more

What a charming little gem this is. What could be better than sitting having delicious coffee accompanied by the tastiest crepes in such a lovely atmosphere made by the owners Eldur and Is. A must if visiting town.

We enjoyed our crepes that much we came here twice on our recent visit to Reykjavik. We couldn't decide between a crepe or the gelato so we decided to have both! Everything we tried was delicious and the girl who served us both nights was really friendly. Would recommend!

Found this place just around the corner from Center Thingholt hotel and with 6 people trying to eat in Iceland we spent a lot of time here. We even got crepes to go before leaving for airport on our last day. Reasonably fast, better than a sit down restaurant but still each crepe made one by one. Price is about... More

We decided to try the ice cream parlours instead of having desserts at the restaurants... And this one was THE BEST! Gonna miss the 'ice cream of the year'! Yummy!

We just finished our visit to Hallgrimskirkja and looked for a quick bite. We smelt the crepe while we walked along the street. We found Eldur towards the end of the block. When we walked in, we were attracted by the design and decoration for this small café. Then we switched our focus to the crepe the owner was preparing.... More

Go, eat ice cream. Be happy. It's hard to write much else about this. They have a slightly odd but wonderful selection of flavours. Sizes to cater all appetites! I thought I wanted the largest. Then I saw how big it was and downgraded significantly. Nice friendly staff. Apologies for the slightly odd review, but currently I'm in sugar happy... More

A very cozy and warm place in reykjavik downtown. We saw the place while walking on the street and decided to have a hot chocolate and also take a break from the windy weather and get warm. And we saw the menu with all the wonderful mouth watering stuff on the list, nutella being the highlight.. We ordered a crepe... More
