    This striking building, we arrived at after we had been to the Henigfoss and at the visitors center of the nature reserve. Good facilities, good roads and parking lots. It is also a museum and for the building are the remains of an ancient monastery. A clear path and view point there. But we mostly came for the food. They have 12:00 and 14:00 in the afternoon between a lunch buffet, it is also possible to order from a map. A cosy room with a large table in the middle with all kinds of dishes. Since everyone and also premises the lunch buffet chose we did this too, and it did not disappoint. A variety of hot dishes, chicken, quiche, reindeer, fish oven dish. Vegetables from the oven, salads, soup ect. Home-cooking style. They also remain pleasant so you also in many people not misgrijpt. Choose from a range of homemade cakes for dessert. Comparable in price about 30 euros p.p. and that is worth it.

    The Museum is interesting prepared, visit also the exterior! The leadership of Darri was even in German - thank you! After the cultural enjoyment and a hike or a walk in this beautiful idyllic landscape the lunch or cake buffet (Klausturkaffi) lends itself - typical Icelandic food - get happy again :)

    The buffet is awesome with local home cooked dishes, sweets and great coffee. The view is also fantastic. There's a small art gallery and children play area.

    Lovely cafe, very welcoming and warm, great food and buffet with affordable prices. If the visitors center is closed the lady that manages the cafe can even give you suggestions for hikes:)
