“Delicious desserts and hot chocolates”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice during our short stay in Reykjavik and found the food and atmosphere top notch. My daughters hot chocolate was the best shed ever had.

“A special spot”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

I visited Reykjavik in November 2013, and visited Sandholt everyday I was there. The baked goods were delicious, the coffee super yummy (this coming from someone who is not typically a coffee drinker!), and the sandwiches were perfect for packing up for day trips outside the city. Cozy atmosphere, yummy food, and a central location - lovely!

“Excellent baked goods and lattes”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

We grabbed pastries and coffee here 3 times in our day and a half in Reykjavik- so good!

Atmosphere: a little bakery on a busy street in Reykjavik. Narrow by the cash register, but there is seating in the back that expands out for menu service. We grabbed pastries that were easily visible in the window and at the counter and ate while we walked. Service was quick on the pastry end but a little slow on the to-go coffee end.

Food: Mmmm- we tried about 5 different types of bread or pastries here and each one was delicious. Fresh, not overly sweet, and the bread alone is wonderful. The coffees were also very good- the lattes were perfectly proportioned in our opinion (but not compared to American portions)

Prices: Reasonable! $2-5 for pastries and $3-5 for coffee or lattes. If you don't have breakfast booked at your hotel, great place to stop by as they are open at 0730 (early for the city)

“Awesome baked goods”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Incredible bread, pastries, croissants. We kept stocking up on things here to take back to our rental place for breakfast, and it saved us having to go out for breakfast often. The jams were delicious, too!

“Excellent pastries and coffee”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We found Sandholt by happy accident. We have visited each day to enjoy a latte and pastry in a relaxed atmosphere. We also purchased food for on the go. The service is excellent, the food is excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. We paid the same amount for a latte out of a machine at our hotel as we did here at Sandholt, where the coffee is made fresh on demand.
