I didn't find their cheese selection much different from what you can find in grocery stores, especially Hagkaup at Kringlan which has a cheese counter plus the prices seem a bit higher. Not worth going out of your way.

Love this place. I wanted one of everything here. They have Icelandic cheese, sausages and salami and they also sell their own brand of biscotti.
