Skemman Café is open 1.June-14.August. We offer quality coffee and bake belgian style waffles with a twist as well as serving them with our homemade strawberry sauce and cream. We also offer a few other treats such as raw cake and cheese cake and a selection of organic teas for example. We are located in the oldest house in the cozy little village of Hvanneyri, that is also the home of the agricultural university in Iceland.
