After eating Skyr for a few days, we found this lovely backery in Reydarfjordur. There was lots of choice of the sweetest things to eat and also some nice sandwiches. The lady behind the counter was very nice. She explained all the pastrys to us...and showed us typical Icelandic food. Very nice. We definitely recommend stopping by for some nice breakfast or lunch!More

Great stop for breakfast while traveling Ring Road. We happened to stop for gas and Sesam was recommended to us. Best coffee we have had in Iceland!

We had breakfast at Sesam while road tripping through Iceland. We can say this was the best breakfast place visited in the country. Great tasting sandwiches, coffee and sweet treats.

Small Bakery/Café with typical islandic baked goods and sandwiches. Sandwiches tasted great, staff was was very friendly and the seating area very clean. We enjoyed our quick break and can only recommend to stop by.

Sesam is always busy at lunch. They offer a daily hot meal from 11:45 - meat, potato, salad etc but sometimes pizza slices - priced between 1300 and 1700 ISK which attracts lots of locals. As it's a bakery there are baguettes, cakes & pastries...to buy as well. This is a good value pit stop if you are driving on Road #1.More

We stopped in Reyðarfjörður, Iceland.to see where they filmed the show 'Fortitude" and stopped here for lunch. The food was delicious and the staff helpful. Many of the locals stopped in to eat also so they must appreciate the food served here also.

So, the Ring Road between Hofn and Egillstadir is a bit dodgy in the off season. Not many places to get a coffee or a bathroom or anything, for that matter. Just before going under the tunnel to Egil, there is a little turn off...to Reydarfjorder and there you find the Sesam bakery and coffee shop. Really neat place. One reviewer thought the staff was unfriendly, well, that is sometimes how Icelanders are. But we found them fine and the coffee was good and the pastry/croissant was good and it was a very local place. Definitely take a break from the road and stop here before you head into the tunnel and fog. There is also a Netto and an atm across the street. Cool little place.More
