Kaffið Hornið brings seafood straight from the sea to the table and offers guests a tempting variety of dishes. It sits on Höfn’s main road and is run and owned by husband and wife Ingólfur Einarsson and Kristín Óladóttir. They have made good use of Höfn’s widely celebrated delicacy, the langoustines, and have created a menu that keeps this lobster-like creature in the foreground. An entire section of the menu of dedicated to dishes showcasing the succulent shellfish in every prize range.
Their menu is varied and offers a wide selection of options, with seafood and local specialities being the main focus. Vegetarians are not left out as a dish of pan-fried chickpea cutlets remains of their more popular dishes. Fresh fish, also caught daily, land and beef from nearby farms and chicken dishes are among are also found on the menu. Pizzas are made to order with a special langoustine pizza for guests who want to try a twist on toppings. They also have excellent lunch options, soup is served every day with homemade bread and a salad bar is open for those who want a light lunch.
Kaffi Hornið is characterised by warm and cosy ambience in a relaxed setting, with airy cathedral ceiling and ample seating for guests. It has been successful and very popular among locals and travellers since its opening in 1999. No wonder, as the service is personal, friendly and efficient and the food is fresh and of the highest quality.
Yummmmmmm is all I have to say. We had the lobster sandwich and the lobster pizza (technically langostino). Both we phenomenal. One of our favorite meals in Iceland. The portions were large and we could barely finish half of our meals! They also have a nice selection of local craft beers. We’d definitely come back next time we find ourselves in Hofn!
