The menu is large, with sea food and local specialities like lamb and beef featuring prominently, although vegetarians are not left out as a dish of pan-fried chickpea cutlets remains one of the more popular dishes. This restaurant and café, with airy cathedral ceilings and ample seating for guests has been successful since opening in 1999, alternating as a restaurant, cafe and bar.

  • "Excellent food and service"

    Try the lobster bisque, it’s a must have. It’s creamy but not too rich, full of flavor with nice chunks of Lobster, simply delicious! We also had the salted cod and lobster pizza both very good. The pizza had pine nuts and was topped with arugula. The service was excellent and the owner even came out to chat with us. Such a lovely treat in a beautiful Icelandic town.

  • "Excelent food"

    They've got the best lobster soup in Iceland. After four different restaurants in Iceland I'd say they have the nicest soup. Meat was tender. The waiter adviced us with the wine. Prices are ok if you consider you are in Iceland.

  • Happy in Hofn

    We had a vey nice lunch at Kaffi Hornid today. From the outside, KH looked clean and simple and modest. The food inside was anything but modest - full of rich flavors, delicately prepared with great care and beautiful presentation. The staff was friendly and helpful and helped us with Icelandic pronunciations! We enjoyed our meal and highly recommend the kind hospitality in Hofn
