Description: Georgina's Cafe is one of York's newest and smartest tea and coffee houses. Modelled on the liner-society cafes of the 1920s and 30s Georgina's offers breakfasts, snacks, lunches and afternoon teas as well as great tea and coffee. Our cakes are becoming some of the most sought-after in the north and we also offer a range of beers and wines.

“Simply the very best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

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 provide. Set in High Petergate, Georgina's is the perfect backdrop, right by the beautiful Minster! Having first come here with my parents whilst coming up to sort University business, I have been back on many occasion. A pot of tea with a warm scone, worker's playtime and the club sandwich are among my favourites. I have been here with my University friends a lot throughout term and is the one regular cafe that I use, whether it to study with a cuppa, or simply relax! The service and quality of food and drink are set against a gorgeous property presumably dating back to the 1500's. With its sloping floors upstairs and medieval stairs, it really has charm. I could not recommend Georgina's highly enough. Go and try it, you won't be disappointed.

“A quiet oasis in York”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

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!
