The Story

Sandholt bakarí

Sandholt is a family-owned bakery, built on decades of tradition. The fifth generation of Sandholt Master Bakers offer its customers new and exciting novelties from one of the oldest bakeries in Iceland, which opened in 1920. Our selection of different varieties of breads and cakes is constantly changing and Master Baker Ásgeir Sandholt seeks to try new, innovative techniques, while staying firmly based in the family’s craftsmanship. In Sandholt, we study old recipes and search for the origins of bread and cake making, and seek to find new aspects on old traditions.

We are not afraid to venture beyond the frame of the traditional Icelandic bakery to develop new methods in bread making. We also experiment with ice cream and confectionery, and it might surprise you to hear that we aspire to create unusual and adventurous cocktail food, and other festive foods. We only use fresh eggs and authentic butter and we even make our own crème fraîche. We avoid taking shortcuts and using methods of mass production, because we want to deliver the best possible quality to our customers.
