Getting good coffee in Borgarnes has not been an easy feat. My cafe latte was worth the extra brisk walk in the wind, rain & hail before catching the bus. I got a delicious looking donut I've saved for later. Baked good all looked amazing.

After watching the Secret Life of Walter Mitty and finding out that the Papa John's was actually this bakery, we knew we had to visit. Seeing that view from the window, relaxing with a coffee and dessert, was on our to do list. Everyone was very friendly and there were a lot of choices. We each had a sandwich to... More

Like everywhere in Iceland, it was clean and welcoming. We had coffee, hot chocolate and light snacks, and beautifully prepared. We also bought bread, of which there is a huge variety and a lovely baked rhubarb tart and some locally made jam to 'export'. Interesting because the pompous French think they do everything better than anyone else, but the quality... More

Always fresh bread and pastries, nice place to sit down and relax after the drive. Quiet place, not as busy as the petrol station

We happened across this cafe by chance but were really pleased we had. Fabulous location and view (though it was raining too heavily to make the most of it), friendly staff and lots of choice. The food was freshly made and very tasty. Would definitely recommended!

We stopped here on our Snaeffellsnes Penninsula Self drive day trip. We came for some hot cocoa And pastry to start the day. The sun was starting to rise and the view was incredible.

On a recommendation we travelled over an hour to have pastries and coffee here and excluding the relentless storm, it was well worth it. This bakery/cafe is renowned for it's small round doughnuts and they are to die for. Extremely fresh pastries and sandwiches made on the premises and friendly staff. If you are a film buff, this place featured... More

My wife and I ate at bakeries all over Iceland in our 10 days there and this was one of the best. Very conveniently located on the Ring Road just as you enter Borgarnes from the south. It was featured as a Papa John’s pizza shop in the movie “The Secret Life of Walter MItty,” but was famous locally long... More
