Locals and visitors alike gather at this unassuming cafe, despite its formica tables and laminate floors, and form lines out the door during the early days of summer. Also known as “Old Rif”, this spot serves some of the tastiest fish soup in Iceland (a recipe perfected by two fishermen’s wives who run the joint located in the fishing town of the same name). Each bowl has a hint of tang: peaches are the secret ingredient. It’s the perfect place for roadtrippers to pause and absorb the windswept charm of West Iceland. Grab a handful of homemade pastries for your journey.
