“Beautiful view but cakes were missing!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

The view from Geirabakari is gorgeous and so this is a nice place to sit down and have a cuppa while admiring the view. I didn't like though that you can't buy cakes to eat there, only the usual assortment of bakery goods, such as danish and scones. No cakes except the usual carrot and chocolate piece (skuffukaka). This in spite of their being nice looking cakes for sale in the shelves. You just can't buy a piece of one! I will skip this bakery the next time I am there and go to Edduveröld instead where the selection of cakes is to be drooled over.

“Quick, delicious, affordable.”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

The title says it all. Cute little cafe right at the north end of the bridge to Borgarnes. I had a sandwich there and a pastry & cappuccino to go. The cafe itself isn't anything fancy, but it had everything I needed.

Nice coffee house with plenty of baked items as well as soup. Made a nice lunch for a reasonable price. Views of the water were great.

“Good coffee, delicious pastries and an amazing view!”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

In Borgarnes, as well as most of the small towns in Iceland, there is one of each; the plummer, the doctor, the dentist and so on. There is as well the baker and the master baker Geiri has been feeding the Borgarnes people with bread and delicacies for a long time. His bakery recently re-located to a beautiful spot at near the Borgarnes bridge with a view of Hafnarfjall mountain. Good coffee and delicious pastries. Highly recommended before carrying on with your trip!
