The food at Cafe Gardurinn is so lovely. It's like stopping by a friend's house to have lunch. The two different dishes each day is also such a great concept... I visited multiple times during my time in Reykjavik and am looking forward to stopping by again during future visits.

Though it has limited hours, this cozy shop offered delicious vegetarian and vegan options for lunch and early dinner; hours end early on Wednesday. Imaginative substitutions and wonderful use of spices and herbs. Eat in service available.

We came across this by chance and we were so pleased we did. Quality food at a reasonable price .Very good value by Reykjavik standards.
They have a selection for each day and a small soup and main for us was perfect
Warm and friendly service in a cosy room

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!
