“Relaxing atmosphere and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We had breakfast here and it is tough to decide who was most pleased, my children with the 3, 6 or 9 pancake options or my full Icelandic country breakfast. All of the food was freshly prepared and delicious and the service was laid back but attentive.

Even better they did take away too which provided an excellent pecan pie and Caramel Apple Pie for me and my wife when the kids were asleep in the hotel opposite!

“Cozy and Relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

When looking for a nice espresso or other drink, Glaetan Cafe was the place to go! The employees were young and nice. They were all attentive and willing to help with whatever you needed. The variety of baked goods and the quality of them were fantastic. I wouldn't have stopped by there every morning if it wasn't great!

“The Best Skyr Ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I've never had better in Iceland. I asked who makes it and they said that it is just regular factory made Skyr, but they "mix" it. It had an absolutely creamy texture with a hint of sweetness. I was shocked!
