Fantastic carrot cake with a hog chocolate. The apple pie is first rate too. Not bad for Icelandic prices either. Well recommended to a bite to eat

We stopped in for coffee and a small breakfast. The lattes were only ok, but the ham and cheese sandwich was pretty good. We ordered the garlic sauce with it, and that was the shining star of the meal.

The cafe itself is very cute, with nice decorations and a patio. We sat inside because it was raining but outside looked lovely. There are also some steps up to an overlook which had a nice view.

Loved the atmosphere, waffles, and iced coffee! My favorite cafe that I visited while in Iceland for a week. Nice quiet music and great employees.

I stayed at the Egils Guesthouse, which is part of Cafe Brak. For three mornings I had their breakfast buffet (22,00 Krona) and was able to eat enough to carry me through the entire day of West Iceland exploration. They have breakfast sandwiches, smoked salmon, pastries, and more. Well worth your time to stop by for a meal if you are traveling in Borgarnes, Iceland.

A nice place for lunch and coffee. Limited selection. They had 2 sandwiches items on many, 4 cakes (brown sugar cake is amazing, carrot cake is decent), they offer 4 types of free infused drinking water (plain, lemon, cucumber, ginger/mint). The latte was reasonable. The hot cocoa hit the spot after a cold day outside. Their grilled ham, bacon and cheese panini sandwich was excellent. Note it was not on the menu, but my daughter asked if they had it or could make it for her - and they said yes. They were so good we ordered extra. The place is small; has about 4 or 5 tables. It wasn’t too busy when we went.

It’s right next door to the better known Settlement restaurant which is nice place for dinner.
