I visited during lunch at weekend. Aside from brunch (which I wasn't interested in, as it was too meaty and heavy for me), the selection of savory food was pretty poor. I had an egg benedict which was, literally, an egg, a (slightly too fat)...More

We visited here twice while in Reyk -- once for supper and once for dessert. Both times late in the day, and we practically had it to ourselves. Very good food and the people behind the counter were extremely friendly and helpful. It was a...More

The botanical garden is a magical place to visit in Reykjavik and the Cafe Floran only adds to this magical atmosphere. It's a tiny cafe with lovely cakes and friendly staff. You could also get different warm dishes. Prices are high, just like everywhere in...More

The cafe is beautiful, especially on a lovely sunny day. We were aiming for lunch, but the meal selection wasn’t inspiring, so we settled for coffee and cake.

Gréât place for lunch during a long day of city visits. It’s cosy and quiet, possible to sit inside or outside depending of the weather. Great chicken salad and chocolate cake.

A Sunday stroll around the parks must be rewarded by coffee and cake, so it was good to find Flóran in the Botanical Gardens of Reykjavík. It’s a large and airy space, with lots of tables to choose from, as well as a sizeable indoor...More

For a slice of pie and a walk around the botanical garden. Never seems to be too busy. If in Laugardalur then this a must

This place is an absolute must-visit in Reykjavik. I visited it for the first time when was traveling in Iceland in May 2017. Recently I moved to Reykjavik and come to this place as a local. It is fantastic atmosphere and delicious food- fresh, juicy,...More

The path in this lovely botanical garden ends at Cafe Floran. Each dish was beautifully prepared and reflected the horticultural environment. Flowers were sprinkled on salads and fresh herbs floated in soups. We ate on the patio but also had the choice of eating inside...More

We found this quite by chance, visiting the Botanic Gardens on a Saturday evening. We didn't think it would still be open, but in the summer months at least it opens until 10 pm. Don't tell anyone, but it's wonderful. It's a cafe in a...More

Sun-dappled tables fill a greenhouse in the Botanic Gardens and spill onto a flower-lined terrace at this lovely cafe that specializes in wholesome local ingredients - some grown in the gardens themselves! Soups come with fantastic sourdough bread, and the snacks range from cheese platters with nuts and honey to pulled-pork sandwiches. Coffee and homemade cakes round it all out.
