A for ambiente

What a cool place. After hours of driving the ring road this gem appears in the middle of nowhere. Scenery-wise one of the best veggie places I've ever visited. I had the soup and my wife had the hot dog, both were delicious. You can't fault them for having a limited menu, but what else do you need?
I can only recommend this veggie oasis (when we arrived there was no one there but after a while it got fuller with travelers from all over the world).

Pros: good food, scenery

Great sausages and mash

We called up in advance as we (a group of 5) were passing by around dinner time and knew that there were not many other vegan options in the area. Even though, it was past their normal closing time, the owner organised for it to be opened just for us and we had a nice warming meal of sausages and mash which was much-needed after the rainy Icelandic weather. I would recommend this if you are in the area.

Pros: Friendly staff, Great food, Opened up just for us

Cons: Not the widest choice

Great atmosphere! There were two vegan options: vegan sausages in curry and soup. I really enjoyed the sausages but the mashed potatoes under them was even better! So fresh... I had chocolate cake for dessert which was delicious.

Pros: Good food, finally no meat around. Great dessert

Cons: Only two food options

Good simple food!

Stopped by for lunch, had their homemade sausage with mashed potatos, very good and simple. Also had a lovely chocolate cake❤️The soup was also good, and my friend loved the waffel😋

Not just vegan, but really tasty vegan.

As vegetarians on a self-driving tour through Iceland, we've been front-loading our meals with hotel breakfasts and relying on power bars for lunch. What a blessing then to find Kaffi Havari. an excellent vegan/veg Cafe in a converted barn next to an organic farm/guesthouse, literally by itself in a field.

I highly recommend a detour to stop for lunch here.

Pros: Vegan currywurst, grilled cheese, soups + waffles

Cons: It's one guy cooking, so patience is a must

Perfect stop on route one

We had the vegan curry wurst with mashed potatoes and a slice of vegan chocolate cake. Everything was super tasty. The cafe in itself is beautiful with a view on the mountains.

Pros: Tasty food, Super nice staff, Lovely location

Tasty sausages

We went by this place on our roadtrip around Iceland. It was nice to see a place with vegan food. It seems popular as there was no empty places when we got there.
The food was good. Too bad the cakes weren't vegan.
