“Cakes to die for!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Called here for a coffee and could not resist the cakes, all different sorts to choose from, never seen such a selection before, they were divine.
The cafe is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside too, nice friendly staff, don't miss it!

“Very dissapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

We have been to this restaurant several times & it seemed quite nice until our last visit in March 2013.
I think the owners could have been on holiday, the staff this time were not very caring.
It was around 12:30 hrs we reported the state of the toilet (NEXT TO THE KITCHEN) it needed urgent attention.
We had a further coffee later that day in the Kafenion & we used the toilet again, alas it had NOT been cleaned. Very off putting indeed.

Fiona K, Owner at Kafeneion, responded to this review, April 16, 2013
I take the hygiene of the shop extremely seriously and for my efforts have a 5 star rating. The toilets are cleaned everyday and are exceptionally clean. I have never known there to ever have been an issue in the 3 years of trading. I am amazed that if you thought it so bad you didn't contact me direct - but rather chose to belatedly post a hugely detrimental and contentious post on a public site.

“Morning Snack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We called in on the spur of the moment as the cafe next door which we were going to visit hadn't opened yet. We just had a hot drink and a toasted teacake but both were lovely and the staff were very friendly. The restaurant is quite large at the back, clean and nicely decorated. The cakes looked lovely and we would definitely go back next time we are in York.

“Great cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

This is a great café, located on Goodramgate. I have visited this on several occasions and have never been disappointed.

The menu is good, with a selection of cakes, paninis, toasted sandwiches, fresh sandwiches and a soup of the day. I would particularly recommend the paninis!

The café itself looks small from the outside, but stretches further back when inside. There is also a small courtyard which is great to sit in on a sunny day.

Overall, a great café and a lovely place to stop off for lunch.
