Local ingredients and diverse food traditions are highly regarded in Austurland. In the past few years, more farmers have started selling their own products directly from their farm. At the same time, more restaurants and cafés serve dishes with locally grown produce.

Móðir jörð
The Móðir Jörð products originate from the organic farm of Vallanes, in East Iceland.  Móðir Jörð is recognised for organic Icelandic products made from ingredients which have been grown under natural conditions in the pure and unpolluted climate of Iceland. The restaurant is open from 11 - 19:00 every day during the high season, 20th of June to the 20th of August. Opening outside of the summer months is from 11 - 16:00 every day.
Hengifoss Food Truck
The food truck is located accross the bridge from the paking lot to the waterfall. You can walk over in 2 minutes or end your hike to Hengifoss with a visit on your way back to the parking lot. We offer local food, all homemade by ourselves. You can enjoy a warm traditional icelandic soup, waffles after my grandmothers recipe or our very own Gúdd ís ice cream, made from only natural ingredients. And if that is not enough, taste Iceland's only sheep milk ice cream, also made by us under the name Sauðagull. It is made from our own sheep milk and we are the only ones in Iceland doing that. Vegan and glutenfree options are also always available. 
Sauðagull
Fjoshornid
Fjóshornið is located at the Egilsstaðir farm, where the same family has engaged in farming for nearly 130 years. Skyr, yogurt and cheese is produced all year round, made out of cows' milk, but Fjóshornið café is only open in the summertime. You can also buy beef directly from the farm. At the café, you can sit down in a cozy environment, enjoy homemade pastries and drink good coffee.  Unfortunately, Fjóshornið café won't be open during the summer of 2022. If you are interested in one of our products please contact us via Facebook, e-mail or phone.
