Café animal

Have you ever had coffee next to a turkey? Here is your chance 🙂 

In this unique coffee place you sit eye to eye with turkeys, rabbits and more.
“Café Animal” is a charming, little coffee place that is connected to the petting zoo Daladyrd in the North of Iceland.

Snacks at Daladýrð, Akureyri
Hot chocolate with cream
Located only a 20-minute-drive from Akureyri, on the way to the popular Myvatn area and Húsavik, “Café Animal” invites locals and tourists to unwind and relax while eating the famous “Café Animal-waffles”.

But there are not only animals to meet, “Café animal” is also full of history – old farming equipment is decorated all over the walls, matching the old-style furniture. Also a small shop with local products and clothing such as the Icelandic “lopapeysa” (wool sweater) is part of “Café Animal”.

Let´s pet
One of the hardest workers at “Café Animal” is without negotiation “Bjartur”. The fluffy Icelandic sheep dog makes sure to great every one in person as soon as you park your car.

The other 2 employers – the cats  “Brandur” and “Brandur” don’t take it as seriously and spend most of their time napping. However, they love a gentle pet by the guests.
