Meaty sandwiches leave vegetarians with one little option—cucumber and tomato on a roll. Not very filling. I was told that the asparagus pizza had ham hidden in it, even though meat wasn't listed in the ingredients.

Opened early on a Sunday. We had just eaten breakfast but still bought a few pastries for the road. Their sandwiches were very good too. Very nice people.

Decent bakery with a pretty wide selection. The quality of the items and the price both seemed fair. I am not sure that you would find a better bakery outside of Reykjavik.
