“Favourite latte in Iceland”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

I simply adore Blaa Kannan! Through my stay in Akureyri, I went there twice, sometimes thrice, in one day! Best of all, it is located in the heart of Akureyri and one is never too far from it - I found myself stopping by especially after my walks around town just to warm up! Definitely have a go at their wide selection of desserts, especially cakes! And, the Swiss Mocha! I sometimes still wake up in the middle of the night, wanting their Swiss Mocha!! Other than that, the interior has a lively yet cozy feel to it! Overall, I'm thinking, I might have to take a special trip to Akureyri one of these days just so I can revisit this cafe!!

“Amazing apple cake with whipped cream”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

They have amazing cakes. I had the apple cake with whipped cream, and my daugther had the chocolate "devils" cake. Both were really good, large portions and good service.

Its really good value for money.

“Where the locals hang out.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Awesome dessert and snacks. Cozy atmosphere, sometimes almost too busy. Great place for a coffee or something stronger.

“Great lunch options”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We stopped at Akureyri for lunch and ended up having a meal at Blaa Kannan. The soup+salad menu was excellent, after a week of travelling it was such a pleasure to find a choice of salads. Big plus for the soy milk on the menu, finally! Decent prices as well as nice decor.

“Yummy coffee and cakes”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Just off the ring road- we stopped here on the way to Myvatn on the recommendation of a friend. I was very glad to find both decaf coffee (rare in Iceland) and excellent cake and quiche. The atmosphere is fun and urban. Its across from a bookstore on a nice street. Try the apple cake!
