In the small and artistic town of Stöðvarfjörður is Kaffi Steinn, a nine-room guesthouse and café overlooking the fjörd. Across from a graphic art gallery and soon-to-be design workshop, Kaffi Steinn beckons visitors to stay with a menu of quick meals like pizza, salad, and tortillas and cosy rooms named after mountains that surround the fjörd. Light refreshments of coffee, pancakes with jam are available, and there is a bar where a selection of wine and Icelandic beer are also served.
Opened last year, Kaffi Steinn has added a place for people in the community to drop by or weary tourists t
o take a break and get a good meal before continuing their journey.
Each morning, breakfast is provided to guests before they start their journey hiking into the mountains, which are just five minutes away. For travellers who want to learn more about rocks and minerals found in the mountains, the nearby museum called Petra’s Stone Collection will satisfy their curiosity with its very unusual presentation.
