The best lobster baguette! We actually drove here out of our original route since we got 2 different recommendations by locals to eat here. The lobster baguette was amazing and worth the drive! Definitely recommended.

Great food with great prices! We wanted a more affordable diner place to eat and happy we picked this one. Large variety of food (there were a few vegan labels but I didn't pay that much attention) and drink options. We all enjoyed our food...and service was fast and friendly. The place got very busy by the time we were leaving and it is not a large place so possibly be prepared to wait a bit for some good food.More

If you are at Hofn and you want to eat something less expensive, this place is a good option. Inspired by the American diners, it has a lot of options for street food. Lobster baguette and chicken burger are delicious.

Stopped here for dinner at the end of a long drive. It’s more than a fast food diner! The service was friendly and quick and the food was excellent and great value with plenty of choice. There are options for children and also plenty of...gluten free food. Definitely recommend!More

Quaint and casual diner. Great sandwiches and a nice cold Appelsín to wash it down. Friendly staff, quick service, and delicious food! The chicken sandwich is one of the better fried chicken sandwiches I've ever had.

Delicious food! We were a little late in Hofn and this was the only place with the kitchen opened at that hour. I had an amazing Lobster Sandwich with fried sweet potatoes. My friends had the fish burger and the pesto chicken and they were...also very tasty. Prices are very reasonable. You definitely should try this place!More

The “BLT our way” has been deemed the best GF meal on the trip so far! The group also had non GF lobster sandwich and the ham/cheese sandwich. Super yummy. Sweet potato fries were great. Ended with “dipped cones” reminisced of USA Dairy Queen. Loved...it all!!More

We came right as it opened for lunch and luckily were the first of a big wave of both locals and tourists! Got the Lobster Baguette and fries which was excellent (the baguette was great quality and the lobster was fresh). Also got a coffee...that was fresh and the perfect pairing to sip. The ambiance is low-key with bright sunny windows and a bustling energy as folks consistently came in and out, and by the drive-thru window. The big and varied menu would make this an easy pleaser for any crowd.More

You get really tasty, freshly made fast food in this popular local eatery. Go for the lobster sandwich, since hofn is the lobster capital of iceland, so it is freshest here - delicious!

It was driving rain, there was major street construction going on, we were starving and were trying to find a different restaurant that had been reccomnended to us. By the time we realized that this little diner was NOT it, we decided that it would...do just fine. We had nice langoustine baguettes, they were tasty and we were on our way.More

This little diner is very beautiful. Located near the harbor of Hofn, you can choose between a lot of sandwiches and burgers. I strongly recommend the lobster baguette, delicious! You can also choose vegetarian burgers - and they are pretty delicious too!
