Description: Our shop sells CREPES, COFFEES and ICE CREAMS, with the possibility to blend them together with the unique flavour of Eldur og is, that means ... fire and ice. From the crepe's menu you may choose sweet or savoury, organic spelt or VEGAN, LACTOSE and GLUTEN FREE. The menu is "free"! Basically you choose your own ingredients from the list. We suggest you to try it with ice cream too. The coffees and the teas that we use are selected and roasted from Tea & kaffi, leader in Iceland for quality coffees. Personally I suggest you to try the Affogato al caffé, that is the perfect blend of the typical Icelandic character ... fire and ice. For Icelanders when you say ice creams, they are thinking Kjoris! Traditional family business, two generations old of ice makers working constantly on the quality of products and production. We are using their ice creams as solo or with our knowledge of blend them with hot crepes or coffees, giving a characteristic flavour of ... Eldur og is. Then we have few more options on hot chocolates, milk shakes and blizzards. Soon or later we will enrich our list of HEALTHY products, but that is our near future. For now accept and enjoy our service and variety of products to satisfy young and happy-mature people.

Blue mint chocolate chip ice cream. Went back twice despite chilly weather and sandals with no socks. 'Nuff said.

Every night, that’s right, every night of our stay here in Iceland we walked up to Eldur & Is for ice cream, crepes, and hot chocolates.

“Loved this place, went twice in 1 day!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We had crepes here for our lunch on our last day in Reykjavik and decided to go back for a dessert treat after our dinner! Crepes are beautiful, as was the nutella hot chocolate! The staff were great and really make the place.

Was lovely at lunchtime to sit outside and watch the world go by, and then a nice relax inside in the evening. Open until 2300, this was great allowing us to go after dinner!

“A perfect treat for dessert or snack”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Eldur and Is serves a tempting variety of ice creams and delicious large crepes with a long list of fillings and toppings including fruits, Nutella (a favorite), and sauces. Or indulge in a blended ice cream with decadent chocolate bars or candies. This restaurant is in the center of town, just a short walk up the hill and is the best place for an after dinner treat or afternoon snack. Service is helpful and cheerful and prices are reasonable.
