We discovered this small vegetarian cafe by accident, and were so impressed that we returned again the next day. Open from about 11 to 6 Monday to Saturday and close to the centre, this cafe usually offers one daily changing choice of starter (eg soup) and main course, both of which in our experience consisted of truly delicious, home cooked vegetarian food, accompanied with good coffee and an irresistible range of superb home baked cakes.

It's a small, clean cafe with friendly staff and a tranquil, stress free atmosphere - a real oasis from the nearby bustling streets. Perhaps because of this, it seemed very popular with local people as well as visiting tourists like us.

Very highly recommended, and all at (especially by Reykjavik standards) a very reasonable price.

Our family of six ,arriving cold and tired just as they were closing were made most welcome; staff stayed late to serve us and we were not hurried in any way, we returned for lunch the following day, busy as they were, we all had a good lunch," warning the portions of cake they serve are gigantic!

This place was quite a find. The only vegetarian restaurant in Reykjavik, and serving exclusively vegetarian and vegan food.There are two menu options each day. One the day I went there was a wonderful soup and gorgeous lentil patties. Highly recommended for veggie and vegan diners, gluten free, healthy eating or just anyone who likes good food. Not bad value at all for Reykjavik either. The cake looked good too but I was too full. Also stock a range of organic and Fairtrade products.

It can be a struggle to find vegetarian/vegan food in Reykjavik but on a day when the snow was blowing horizontally we were overjoyed to partake of the home cooked delights of Cafe Gardurinn. Not an extensive menu but delicious non the less with fabulous cakes and a warm welcome.

Wonderful little place. All vegetarian. Vegan choices. Two specials each day. No general menu. The day I went both options were vegan. Very friendly, cozy place.
