We were looking for a bakery in Reykjavik, and Mosfellsbakeri recieved praise everywhere as the best bakery. Our expectations were high and our disappointment even higher. First of all it's not in the city center. The map shown here in TripAdvisor is wrong, it's in Haaleitisbraut 58, not in Hjalmholt. We had a hard time finding it and walked several kilometers.
Their selection of cakes is not many. Apart from whole cakes (to go) they had three types. We ordered the banana cake, which was quite ordinary, and the chocolate cake, which was very dry. I got the feeling that this cake had been made several days ago.
If you're looking for a cafe or bakery with good cakes, I'd recommend Munnharpan instead, which we visited some days ago. They had really amazing cakes.
