By far our favorite bakery in Iceland! Everything is yummy and they have a great selection! It's a little off the tourist track which is good in my book! We went back several times...the last time to buy snacks for the plane ride home.

Looking for a less expensive place for a quick breakfast or some bread for cheese & meat, this is the place. Iceland's oldest bakery is just that for a reason, consistent quality products. I got the Hjónabandssæla which is Icelandic Happy Marriage cake. Yea I...More

I stumbled across the oldest bakery in Reykjavik by accident and decided to have a look. This is not a high end patisserie but a traditional scandinavian balery with an assortment of wienerbrod, marzipan delights and an intersting take on floertines. The bread looked sensational...More
