Let them eat cake!
Why locals love it
This respectable bakery situated on the main street has some delightful cakes and pastries. The prices are a bit high, but then again everything in Reykjavik is. The place is tasteful and the staff is friendly.
Why you should visit it
The pastries are lovely and everything with chocolate tastes like happiness. The head poncho of the place was the only Icelandic competitor at the World Chocolate Masters competition in 2013.
Pain au chocolat, especially straight from the oven.
