Bakeries are extremely popular in Iceland and can be found all over the country.
Up until just a few decades ago, flour, sugar, and other such commodities were a rarity, and therefore there isn’t a long tradition of cake and bread-making. However, today bakeries offer a wide range of breads and pastries, including classic local favourites. These include, pönnukökur (pancakes), kleinur (deep fried dough-twists), flatkökur (flat-bread), Jólakaka (Christmas cake), and vínarbrauð (danish pastry).
Wherever you are, there will probably be a bakery nearby. You’ll find a list of bakeries in Iceland below.
