We have not eaten here, but we have purchased bakery items. It is small and quaint, but what a wonderful selection of high quality baked items - European style croissants with various fillings and glazes, fancy cookies, cinnamon swirl buns, and more. This is a gem of a place in southern York. They also have a coffee bar - have... More

Stopped here for first time Saturday and got some cookies and a fruit type dessert. Both were excellent. They have a small dining area and serve coffee as well. As we were leaving we heard someone buying pierogis so we also got a dozen frozen ones for $10.99 At home thawed them and fried in oil until brown and they... More

Janina's is one of those places that defines how cultured a small town can be. Her pastries and especially her cakes are the equal of what you might find in Vienna or Paris. Her croissants are sensational and people walk for miles for her cookies, fresh baked every day. Go for a sensational breakfast - the choices include crepes or... More

Janina's did a perfect job of meeting my needs this weekend when I needed a special birthday cake. Eric helped choose a lactose free chocolate raspberry over the phone and it not only reasonably priced, but beautiful and delicious. Their breakfast menu looked great too, but I had no chance to try it. Highly recommended.

It's nice to have a quality bakery in town. Her desserts and cakes are unique, good quality and taste delicious. They have a little bistro selling soups, sandwiches and salads. it's a true owner operated small business.

Janina's is my favorite bakery/cafe in York, and the surrounding area. The desserts are to die for, it feels like you made the trip to Europe and stopped in some perfect little shop that only the locals know about. The service is excellent, very friendly, and they actually remember you! After getting to know Janina's from picking up desserts and... More

About 3 years ago one of my customers gave me a gift certificate to Janina's for Christmas. I didn't know what Janina's was so I gave it a try. When I went there the desserts reminded me of being on a cruise & you go to that midnight buffet that has all those fancy desserts. Every time I go there... More

This restaurant specializes in European pastries and cakes. She also changes up her menu with the season. Her desserts are amazingly decorated and deliciously tasteful. It is always a pleasure to shop in her restaurant and it is the BEST bakery in the York area.

This cheesecake is hands down... The best! I've had the pumpkin, Oreo and plain with fruit on top and have never been disappointed! They are the perfect consistency and texture! Don't miss out on these sweet treats!
