Halldór’s Café satisfies locals and travellers alike
Halldórskaffi Guests at Halldór’s Café are greeted by the scent of steaming soup and freshly baked bread as they walk through the door. Across from Vík’s shoreline, with its black sand beaches, Halldór’s Café emphasises the use of only quality ingredients from the locality in their cooking. Whether be it a freshly caught salmon you crave, steaks from grass-fed cattle or free range lamb served with the accompaniment of locally grown greens – you can be sure that Halldór’s Café will deliver. They also offer a variety of lighter meals such as soup of the day and light salads, and those with a bit of a sweet-tooth will not be disappoined, as the menu includes home-baked cakes and home-made ice cream from a local farm.
Originally, Halldór’s Café was the general store, built in 1831 to meet all of the needs of Vík. Today, it continues to satisfy patrons with its menu, which has something for every taste, using local produce, where possible.
Halldór’s Café supports artists with a rotating display of local talent featured on its walls, and serves up steaming cups of coffee and cake, ideal for meeting and greeting old friends or new acquaintances. The café is open all year round. Summer opening hours are from 11:00am to 10:00 or 11:00pm, but winter openings are from 11:00am to 9:00pm. When travelling in the area around the beautiful Vík, be sure to stop at this charming café and get greeted with a welcoming smile and a seductive menu. -JB
