WHY I LIKE IT
You know I love a good slice of cake, and there is no better place for it than in one of Iceland’s best bakeries, Sandholt Bakery. Established in 1920, the bakery has a preserved heritage with the Sandhotel community delighting its guests with a mouthwatering treat at the end of long days of exploration in one of the most captivating European capitals. Delicious.
