Pastries, salads and lunches

The cafés in the Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala are open from May to the end of September but closed in the winter. In the area around the Botanical Garden, lunch restaurants can be found at Blåsenhus, at the Evolutionary Biology Centre (Evolutionsbiologiskt centrum) and in Engelska Parken. These are open on weekdays.

Café Victoria

The gardeners’ century-old bakery and wash house in The Botanical Garden is now Café Victoria. Lunches and pastries made from local, organic and fairtrade ingredients, decorated with flowers from the garden, are served in the shade of parasols and venerable trees. Waffles and ice cream are on offer to tempt the children.

The Café is open daily from the beginning of May to the end of September.
