A beautiful building in the park with a decent selection of cakes. Worth going just for the atmosphere and location.

Very nice Cafe in the Botanical Gardens which is adjacent to the Akureyri Hospital. We had a hot chocolate and shared a desert. Nice place to visit after visiting the town. We took a car and had a GPS to find the Botanical Gardens. Located...on top of the hill over the top. Directions to find were a little complex but once you find it you will be impressedMore

This is very nice cafe in interesting building and with delicious sweets. And what's best, you get two flies with one hit as this cafe is located in the Artic Botanical Garden. Entrance to garden is free, so you can take a look around it...while visiting this cafe. If you are an early bird, ensure that cafe is open while heading to this place as it was opening quite late in July 2019.More

This is a very attractive, light-filled space in the Botanical Gardens. Its open modern architecture suits the setting and there is comfortable seating inside or outside if the weather is fine. We enjoyed our light lunch and would certainly recommend this as a place to...enjoy refreshments when visiting the Gardens.More

We had been walking all around the Botanical Garden and this was a nice place to relax and have Tea and Coffee. They had great Biscotti. You could look out at the Gardens while you relaxed.

One has to forgive the proprietors of this cafe for their high prices. Akureyr, Iceland is in the Arctic. So let it be. The local draft is fine. Other cafe items are fine. The Botanical Gardens are a great find, with no admission charge.

At the top of the Botanical Garden is this small little cafe with Danish pastries and various drinks from water, juices and beer. You can also get a sandwich and breakfast items and desserts. Small quaint little shop to stop at while in the garden....We got a piece of carrot cake that was good but they wouldn’t make us iced tea after the gal at front said yes her boss said no....More

We went here for breakfast and coffee before a visit to the gardens. The food was just okay. Our quiches were soggy, but the waffle and coffee was good. Shortly after we ordered, the cafe became packed with tourists visiting the gardens.
