This was really great place, but the owner shut it down and now it doesn't exist anymore. They had smoothies, great different coffees, pizza, salads and so on. Akureyri needs place like this, I wish this would have lasted longer.

On my suggestion, as I had great pizza there about 2-3 years ago, I revisited Símstöðin with a group of friends in Jan 2019. We wondered why the place was empty on a Friday night but figured it out when we got our pizzas. They...More

Nice to take a beer and pizza here. Not really great food, but the beer is good (when it's on happy-hour price)

They serve frozen pizzas for ISK 2.000 to 3.000. We only managed to have one bite of the vegetarian pizza, it was that bad. It was like there were coleslaw on the pizza (as the veggies).

The servis is ok, we ordered pizza and wrap. It is not fresh, likely frosen. The wrap was hot in the middle (microwaved) and the chicken very dry. Not good experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our helpings of traditional Icelandic lamb soup, nicely seasoned, plus a couple of beers. Friendly staff. Popular spot.

Stopped into the Simstooin Cafe on a Sunday morning; great coffee and breakfast snacks. Healthy crowd with a few tourists and plenty of locals. Easy to find, only two blocks or so from the docks/harbor. Staff very attentive and helpful. Would go back here anytime.
