We visited Georgina's on Sunday 20th July and sampled the Victoria Sponge Gateau and the Fruit Cake (served with butter!); both were home made and excellent choices. We spoke with a lady called Sharon who was extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. It was such a relaxing and enjoyable visit, we shall definitely be returning to sample more... More

Unfortunately the last potato had just been ordered so I decided to choose my second option of homemade soup and and open sandwich. What an excellent choice! Tomato and basil soup with a cheese and pickle sandwich using brown... More

What a cafe! As a student at University of York i can also vouch that the prices are very reasonable, just one of the many, many reasons which makes Georgina's my favourite place to eat out or drink. The staff are exceptionally friendly, attentive and it is obvious to me that they care a huge lot about the service they... More

Step inside Georgina's for a delightful break from the hustle and bustle of York's streets. A pot of tea with fresh, warm scones is sure to delight! For lunch, the delicious warm tuna (tuna melt) on whole grain bread was amazing!

Three of us booked for Georgina's Special Afternoon Tea with a glass of Prosecco. We were not disappointed. We were well looked after. The sandwiches were lovely and very fresh. The cakes were all home-made and the tea was free flowing - we only had to ask for a top up and it was brought to us. The glass of... More

The food was great and excellent value for money. Service was excellent, very pleasant staff. Georgina's is certainly worth a visit. Only slight niggle was that we had to ask for hot water to top teapot up, not really an issue and we were not charged for this, just would have liked it to be provided without asking. However this...

Could this be Yorks best cafe? Me and my wife certainly think It could be. We visit at least once a week for the fantastic home cooked food, deliciously indulgent cakes and most of all the service which always comes with a smile. We cannot recommend this cafe highly enough!! Mr and Mrs Turnbull.
