Good ice cream. But the staff there was a bit rude to their customers. Will recommend that you can try some ice cream here if you don't mind the service.More

This is probably one of the few places in Iceland that has gluten-free options. I had the savoury crepe and ice cream here and it was relatively inexpensive and quite delicious. It is a small area and not a lot of seating but definitely worth...More

Stopped here for a treat on last day. Initially stopped for a crepe but the ice cream looked so good we changed our mind. It’s much better value also than a desert crepe. I paid 600 ISK for a huge cone, very tasty ice cream...More

Since being diagnosed as a Coeliac I’ve found it harder and harder to travel and find good sweet things to eat. I’ve been missing things like crepes and so when I read the other reviews on here I thought it had to be worth a...More

Super crepes! And plentiful free Icelandic water. Super atmosphere. Small person absolutely loved it. Would we return? Absolutely yes

I wish I would have found this little gem sooner during my stay in Reykjavik! On second thought - my waist is glad that I did not because I would definitely had a crepe every day! This is a small, nothing fancy place but has...More

In Iceland are used kronan and all type of cards. Some shops acept also dollars. My suggestion is to use the cards and take control of the availability on the card.

Our shop sells CREPES, COFFEES and ICE CREAMS, with the possibility to blend them together with the unique flavour of Eldur og is, that means ... fire and ice. From the crepe's menu you may choose sweet or savoury, organic spelt or VEGAN, LACTOSE and GLUTEN FREE. The menu is "free"! Basically you choose your own ingredients from the list. We suggest you to try it with ice cream too. The coffees and the teas that we use are selected and roasted from Tea & kaffi, leader in Iceland for quality coffees. Personally I suggest you to try the Affogato al caffé, that is the perfect blend of the typical Icelandic character ... fire and ice. For Icelanders when you say ice creams, they are thinking Kjoris! Traditional family business, two generations old of ice makers working constantly on the quality of products and production. We are using their ice creams as solo or with our knowledge of blend them with hot crepes or coffees, giving a characteristic flavor of ... Eldur og is. Then we have few more options on hot chocolates, milk shakes and blizzards. Soon or later we will enrich our list of HEALTHY products, but that is our near future. For now accept and enjoy our service and variety of products to satisfy young and happy-mature people.
