We stopped today about 2 in the afternoon and it was packed. Knowing nothing about it, we were very pleased with the taste of our sandwiches. In particular my chicken caesar was delicious. My coffee was excellent. My husband had one of their lunch specials and was equally pleased. Considering how busy it was, our sandwiches arrived in a very reasonable period of time. Dishes we were finished with were removed from the table promptly. The cakes and pastries looked wonderful. We had brownies that were very rich. We will definitely go again. I see they are open at night so we might try that. I would recommend to anyone.

This is a lovely cafe. We only tried the coffee which was great, but the lay- out, decor and most importantly for me, the cleanliness of the toilets,will ensure a return visit for food on our next trip to York in October.

What a fabulous place - authentic Italian coffee, quite the best we've anywhere, far superior to any chain. The meze platter we had for lunch was superb value and we enjoyed it so much we returned for an evening cocktail and another platter! Its really close to the Minster so was very convenient. Will definitely visit Kafeneion next time we come to York!

This is an absolutely fantastic cafe - we have been visiting regularly for around 2 years and have introduced many friends (and my parents!) to it's delights. Friendly, helpful staff and a FANTASTIC range of sandwiches, paninis, salads and an ever-expanding menu. The homemade cheesecakes are an absolute must have - if you go there, try one, you won't regret it! 20% student discount is well-appreciated too - these little touches make all the difference in a city with such stiff competition. A little off the beaten track but just round the corner from York Minster.
