Found this place while walking around the harbor. Staff is very nice and knowledgeable. They also have additional treats such as jams and crackers to make your Icelandic cheese adventure even more delicious.

I didn't find their cheese selection much different from what you can find in grocery stores, especially Hagkaup at Kringlan which has a cheese counter plus the prices seem a bit higher. Not worth going out of your way.

Love this place. I wanted one of everything here. They have Icelandic cheese, sausages and salami and they also sell their own brand of biscotti.
