A Vegetarian Cafe & Restaurant: Our Vision
The goji berry, sometimes called the happy berry, symbolises the type of experience we are striving to bring you; vibrant, colourful, joyful and life enhancing. Our food is vegetarian, wholesome, nutritious and lovingly prepared from start to finish. We are passionate about the quality of our dishes which is why we work without microwaves and aluminium pans, but with local suppliers and organic produce. Most of our food is freshly made on the premises from only natural ingredients without additives, colourings or flavourings.
Goji Cafe Feedback Posted to Site
Goji Vegetarian Cafe & Restaurant in The Press, York:
"Seeking something sweet, I requested organic apple strudel with cinnamon, lemon and elderflower ice-cream. There was no elderflower ice-cream left, but the alternative summer fruit version was most acceptable to Ann as well. As for the strudel, it is a long time since I tasted one so good."

Goji Feedback Form: "Hello, I just wanted to say what a lovely meal we had in your restaurant last Friday night. We were the party of 3 at 7 pm. My husband and I are both hardcore veggies, my friend is a cow-muncher who enjoys V food too, we were all impressed with the imaginitive menu, quality of the food and the service. We'll definitely eat here again when we're in York. Thanks,"
"I was on a short break in York earlier this week and visited the cafe with my parents both in their mid 80's and my vegetarian daughters (I'm not). I had the trio of salads which were superb. My mother was very taken with the sweet potato and butternut squash soup and a
sked for the recipe which you kindly wrote out and gave her. She was tickled pink.
I would like to say thank you. They don't get much opportunity to travel far these days and the kindness shown by everyone was one of the highlights of our trip" Sept 2010.
"Best cafe in york for vegetarian food."
"5/5 - By far the best vegetarian restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of eating out at.
The experience was fabulous in all aspects: food and atmosphere! The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. I will definitely be returning when I get the chance to visit York again! Many thanks to all the staff." (Oct 2010)
Hi guys, My husband booked a surprise b'day meal for the two of us a couple of weekends ago and I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed it. The food was fantastic (even my carnivore other half was impressed), our waitress was lovely and the company and poetry of Fynn was even more enjoyable! Great to have met you guys and hopefully see you again on our next visit to York. Big love, Denise and Wal (the brummies!) : ) (Oct 2010)

"this is a selling show of photographs of Venice, and all the images have been printed on a heavyweight watercolour paper, giving them qualities that you would associate more with fine-art paintings or very early Victorian photographs"
