We had breakfast here for a business meeting and WOW, totally impressed with the choices, flavors and quality of our breakfast! The fresh fruit was amazing and the omelette was cooked to perfection. We were even given a warm coffee mug! The prices are higher but it's because it is a quality breakfast! There is free wifi and it's quiet... More

Great little place for lunch. The food was very good. I had the PIEROGIES with the sausage. Others in the group had sandwiches and salads. All the food looked good. The desserts look great, but we did not have any.

It was our first visit to Janina;s for brunch on Sunday and it is by far our favorite destination thus far in the York, Pa.area. The omelettes were superb as was the the coffee, the bacon, the potatoes, the fresh fruit, the servers and the atmosphere, serene and tastefully decorated. The baked goods rivaled anything you'd see on the food... More

I can't say too much about this little gem of a place. The food-breakfast or lunch is delightful, fresh and always interesting. The cakes and pastries are exquisite- for better than you would expect to find anywhere in Pennsylvania. And the family who run the restaurant and warm and welcoming.

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.
