Lots of different shops and bars and restaurants, the cheapest supermarket in Iceland is on the street its called Bonus and the sandwiches are fantastic. When you cross over the road at the traffic lights watch out for the singing hot dog guy.

This street is everything you need to get your souvenirs and the real Iceland feeling but not the best place to eat or actually buy stuff you could find somewhere else because all the shops are quite expensive. They are, however, worth visiting!
