In the town of Hvolsvöllur, you will find a unusual combination of a café and a gallery, with delicious food, drinks and beautiful handicrafts. Run by an artistic husband and wife, who make the handicrafts on sale, Eldstó offers a cozy environment for tired travellers.
If ceramic art is your interest, Eldstó is the perfect place to visit. Guðlaug Helga and Þór have built up a reputation in the field as excellent craftsmen. They also sell products by other artists in their recently enlarged gallery and café.
Driving the ring road east from Reykjavik, you will arrive in Hvolsvöllur in about an hour and a half. It is just the time to stop for a cup of coffee, whether you’re continuing onwards or not. Eldstó offers various delicious home-baked cakes with a nice warm cup of coffee, smoothies and snacks. If you are driving through at noon, Eldstó offers you a large brunch. If you happen to be in Hvolsvöllur during dinnertime, the dish of the day should not be missed.
The food is not only delicious but also a delight for the eyes, being served in home-made china in an artistic manner.
