Absolutely loved this place. Great ice cream. Delicious. Very friendly staff. It was very warm in Iceland, unseasonably so and we decidedly stop in at the recommendation of the hotel. Great choice. They had a million toppings but the ice cream was excellent too. Highly...More

Very interesting ice cream - a cross between ice cream and frozen custard. It was very tasty and there is a wide range of toppings. They have their own version of a Blizzard! Enjoy!!!

Lonely Planet boasts this place as being legendary in Iceland for its ice cream, and it didn't disappoint. Apparently, the ice cream is made with milk, not cream, which accounts for its slightly different taste. It's simple and delicious with lots of option for toppings....More

In a place with some incredible ice cream this place served only soft ice cream. Not sure why all the fuss??? Half liter of ice cream was almost 9$

Best soft serve I've ever had. I mixed in 3 different candies, it was like a fancy McFlurry or Blizzard! Size small was HUGE but I ate it all regardless. A bit expensive for ice cream but worth it. Friendly, efficient staff. Open late to...More

though the ice cream/soft serve was good, the most impressive thing here is the staff. They were incredibly helpful and patient explaining to us some of the things we weren't familiar with. We walked there from "downtown" and it was worth the effort. Great people...More
