Lovely pot of tea. Friendly staff. We sat watching the world go by. It was towards the end of the day and the street looked romantic and Christmassy with the light twinkling. Worth a stop.

We came across this cafe/tea shop last week on a day out in York It's a Lovely little place, staff are so nice and helpful, the food.... Delicious. It can get packed quickly, but that's not surprising really. They do try and accommodate customers if they are full. I would recommend to anyone

My wife and I happened onto Georgina's while searching for a lunch spot where she could get a gluten free meal. Spotting their menu items listing gluten free we went in and gave it a try, the trip advisor sticker helped with our decision as well. We both had open face type sandwiches which were very well done and the... More

The menu suited very well and varied from a light snack to a larger meal. Service was quick and efficient and the staff were very friendly and... More

Popped in Georgina's recently for a cup of coffee. Lovely cafe, pleasant staff and a lovely atmosphere. Just had a coffee, but I did see all the delicious looking cakes. Will definitely go back when next in York and might try a cake or two!
