Some Charming Cafes in Iceland

If you would like a nice walk before your coffee, leave your car at Arnarstapi and take a  2.5 km coastal hiking trail until you reach the coffee house Fjöruhúsið Hellnum, surely the most pleasant café in Iceland. You can also just drive to Fjöruhúsið Hellnum, located on the seafront near Hellnar in Snaefellsnes peninsula; this café is a real treat for both your palate and your eyes. Note that the coffee shop opens after Easter and closes in October.

Open all year, this cafe located in Dalvik, North Iceland, offers a delicious house fish soup, amazing home-made cakes and a very cozy and friendly decor -on the way to the toilet, you will find yourself nose-to-nose with a sculpture of the Icelandic president, that looks like he does in person.

With a small British pub alongside, the Lára kaffi Seyðisfjörður is a great place to spend an evening chatting with friends and discovering the artists in this little town in East Iceland.

This coffee house Þingeyri, in the West Fjords, is nestled in a small greenhouse dating back to 1915. The building was once a grocery store and then was converted into a café by a Danish-Belgian couple. The atmosphere is pleasant, as are all the dishes -and of course not forgetting the delicious waffles on the menu!
