A café and restaurant opened in the residential area of Skerjafjörður, West Reykjavik, two years ago,  and it's also a bike repair shop. Called the Bike Cave, the venue offers cheap, good fast food, including a now famous vegan burger. 

Inside is also a self-service bike repair.

"We wondered what we could do with the location and the idea we came up with was to open a café and restaurant for people on bikes. There's a great bike trail past the building, and my partner Stefán is also an avide motorbike enthusiast, "says owner Hjördís Andrésdóttir. 

„We get a lot of tourists here, especially for the vegan burger and I believe that if people get good, cheap food they will come back more often."

She adds that locals often pop in to get a take away or sit down for a beer. Check out their Facebook page HERE.
