“The best cakes !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014 via mobile

I can say that was one of best cakes I've ever had in my life. So yummy ! Excellent home made stuff !
There is a wide variety of cakes/sweet and some other food ! (Even local food).
Very friendly. Polite staff ! Neatly dressed ! The whole place looks like a movie set !
Good service, reasonably priced, free parking ! Quite area !
Close to the harbour so you can smell fish out side the cafe !
If I go to Iceland again will definitely visit !

“favorite cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

Our favorite place in Iceland. We were lucky to find Hendur i Hofn. We thought
the cafe opened at 10am and arrived on time. Although the opening was noon,
Dagni and her thoughtful husband opened up and served us anyway. It was as if we were old friends just dropping in for a bite and conversation. Best atmosphere
and charming couple. Great food and lots of it. I would go to Iceland again just to visit this
place. ( and get a meal too of course) and we live a long ways away in California.
Yummy breads, pies and cakes. Just delicious and homemade!!! Love this place!!!

“Romantic, welcoming and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

I can highly recommend this excellent cafe in þorlákshöfn. Owner and staff are super friendly, the food is home made from scratch, and the decor is romantic and cozy. We had tasty chicken soup, served with great bread with some excellent home made spreads. The coffee and cakes were also excellent.
