Salt Café & Bistro is a bistro restaurant and café, located in the downtown of Egilsstaðir. They stay true to the original bistro concept, being a small restaurant serving moderately priced meals in a modest setting.
Their menu is varied and consists of a range of healthy dishes. Whether you are craving a juicy grilled burger, a healthy pizza, an oriental dish from the Tandoori oven or just a snack, Salt will have something of your liking.
You could say that their healthy pizzas are the most popular choices of Salt Café & Bistro. The pizzas are made of local barley from Vallarnes and whole-spelt flour, topped with their signature cheese blend and homemade tomato sauce.
They also offer a range of Tandoori grilled courses, but Tandoori is a cylindrical clay oven heated with charcoal. All the dishes from the Tandoori oven are served with salad and fresh firs or sweet potatoes. In addition to this, Salt Café and Bistro also offer a good range of small dishes, such as snacks, nachos and fresh salads.
Café Salt is a must for a stopover, snack or coffee. Recommend the unique Icelandic take on an Indian speciality, Tandoori lamb. Three door stopper thick lamb steaks, cooked in a delicious marinade of spices, with rice vegetables and a Nan bread to accompany it. Very reasonable prices (for Iceland) around 4,000 ISK for meal and coffee. Coffee was the best in Iceland. Highly recommended and the service was first rate
