We were in the cafe in the mid morning specifically looking for a good coffee. We found delicious latte macchiatos and apple pie with marzipan. I should have gotten a bigger coffee because it was so good. Very clean place and right in the center...of this little port town.More

Everything you get to eat at Bláa Kannan will be top notch but I do find it kinda pricey. Still I'd rather pay a little extra for quality than safe money and get a dry cake. I've tried a few of the cakes and also...the chicken panini and it's all so tasty. This has been my go to cafe for years.More

Best quiches you can find in whole of Iceland is in this cafe. Located in an old building in center of town its a must visit when in Akureyri. I have ti say though that saying it comes with a side of salad is kinda...overstating the fact that it was a less than a handful of iceberg salad a half a cherry tomato. The server also took forever to serve so a second person would have been to lessen the wait for customers. Its bice though to sit by the window and eat the best quiche in Iceland. Spinach in my case.More

This charming cafe is right in town in a striking Victorian-looking blue building. They serve many quiches and have soup and nice desserts. My vegetable quiche was delicious, and the apple cake was fabulous. I had lunch, but it's also open in the evenings.

We were surprised about how many local actually frequent this ‘tourist trap’! Lovely chilled atmosphere around brunch time. Great food, spotlessly clean, average prices. Easy to see why this place is the ‘must visit’

Outstanding cappuccino and breakfast pastry -- good blueberry muffins plus scones and nut bars near the coffee machine. We got sandwiches for a late lunch which were quite good. Nice place with good service. Recommended for center of Akureyri. Wish they opened earlier.

horrible food and cake. I asked for a panini without mustard and she said sorry they are already made. (STRIKE 1, lol). the pizza panini was horrible - almost no sauce or cheese, it looked like something that came out of a vending machine. the...cake was below average (I can't even remember what is was supposed to be). the grilled chicken sandwich was acceptable. not sure why this place is popular.More
