We stopped in for the lunch buffet and were not disappointed. There were plenty of dishes to pick from - lamb meatballs, some type of stewed lamb, a variety of vegetable dishes, and desserts. Everything we ate was quite tasty. The location is quite nice...as well. If you eat in the enclosed patio, you can look out toward the lake.More

I live about an hour and a half from this lovely place and I have eaten here many times through the years. Everything here is wonderful. The wild mushroom soup alone is worth the trip. Real and unpretentious food cooked and served by lovely people....The house itself is very interesting and beautiful and the valley of Fljótsdalur is a gorgeous place. Highly recommendedMore

Klausturkaffi is a cozy café at Skriðuklaustur, a museum in Fljótsdalur. You can visit the café along with going to the museum or just come for lunch or the all-important Icelandic meal, afternoon “coffeetime”. They have a lunch buffet as well as à la carte...options at lunchtime and in the afternoon a wonderful buffet with cakes, cookies, pies, bread, and some more savory options like quiche. They emphasize Icelandic food traditions and local foods, and all of the bread and cakes are baked there. The atmosphere is warm and cozy and the hosts and staff always welcoming. Highly recommended!More

Read about this place on TA, otherwise never would've known to stop in after Hengifoss. Wow, superb spread and for Iceland it is amazing value. Arrived at 215 in time for the buffet, which stops at 3. Excellent spread of options, and everything myself and...my wife tried was of top quality. The buffet includes soup, Coe, lamb and chicken dishes, salad, potato options, loads of other little dishes, plus 4 different cakes. Then at 3 they wrap up the food and bring out even more cake for a cake buffet if you were to arrive from 3 onwards. We tried a few little bits of different cakes, all delicious. I highly recommend, lovely setting, friendly welcome and just superb food. If I lived near here I'd be the size of a house !!More

We made a special trip during our drive around Iceland in order to stop by Klausturkaffi. It was so worth it! My husband did the buffet. I ordered from the menu. Our food was great. The grounds and the house are really beautiful!

Perfect lunch after hiking Hengifoss. Tasty and fulfilling buffet. Our lunch included butter chicken, baked haddock, and sautéed veggies. The cream of tomato soup was good. Excellent service and picturesque dining in the bottom floor of the Gunnar mansion.

A really great place! We stopped there for a bite after a walk to Hengifoss. They have really good food and desserts. The view is also something that everybody need to see.

The lunch buffet was the perfect sustenance stop after exploring Hengifoss. I had not expected such a range of beautifully prepared soup, main course dishes, accompaniments, salads and desserts. Local ingredients are used whenever possible - Iceland is part of Europe and so I have...ticked European cuisine but this is Icelandic food! This was well worth the money, it was a delicious and extremely filling meal. We were able to have extra helpings and extra coffee, the lady in charge was so lovely and welcoming. Lots of information about this unique house that has the remains of an old monastery in its garden. This is really near to the local Visitor Centre and a short drive from the Hengifoss car park.More

This is a nice little place. We enjoyed the cake buffet, which also serves some savory food. Everything is as delicious, the homemade bread, tuna salad, fresh vegetables, bacon bread pudding... and of course the cakes (even though they were a little bit too sweet...for my taste). The staff is very friendly and we enjoyed a nice afternoon in the sun on the outside terrace.More

Words cannot describe this. Just go there and try it! The cake buffet is between 14:00 and 17:00 if I remember correctly. All you can eat plus hot chocolate to drink or coffee if you go for that. It's GREAT !!

The setting of the place is beautiful and cozy. The food was really good, I got the beetroot patties and the crowberry brownie. The service was very good and everybody was so friendly and nice. The food is fairly priced and the wait was not...long. There was something for everybody. I would really recommend to go there, really worth it.More

Absolutely amazing. The best food in Iceland, lovely atmosphere and a shrimp soup to die for. All in excellent prices. Really recommend visiting Austurland if only just for that
