“Kronan is another budget grocery store in Iceland and another one of our favorites because there are lots of locations around the country, especially in the south and around Reykjavik. Kronan stores offer a larger meat and dairy section as well as fresh foods as opposed to Bonus. If you are looking to buy lots of fresh foods Kronan is a good option. Kronan also offers a variety of healthy food options as well.”

“Just a stones throw from Laugardalslaug Swimming Pool you´ll find the best Ice Cream parlor in town. All ice cream made on site in small batches. Do try their Salted Caramel or if they happen to have the "Hjónabandssæla"-flavor. (It means "Wedding bliss" !) And of course they bake their own cones, which are excellent. Open until 23:00”
