Yianni's is my go to place for my Beef Gryo fix, Always load with meat severed on a warm pita, fresh tomatoes, red onions and lettuce. Homemade Tzatziki sauce! Always very yummy. Soups are also made in house and also very good.

In communities everywhere, asking the locals for recommendations on anything in their area usually yields the best advice. So my wife and I asked the owners of the bed-and-breakfast where we were staying in Ocean City which restaurants they like the best. They replied that Yianni’s Café is among their favorites; and now it is one of ours, too. Don’t... More

Yianni's has some of the friendliest staff ever! They are so accommodating!! The food here is excellent. The hummus is one of my favorite parts, it is soooo good! Also, they have amazing bagels!!! It's such a cute place for a good meal, & you get a ton of food!!

I've returned to this place every time I vacation in Ocean City and it is consistently delicious. The "Yianni's Favorite" breakfast is the perfect way to start the day and one of the many fresh smoothies really gives you long lasting energy for the rest of the day! The burgers are very good as well as the gyro plate. The... More

It was a joke of Greek food. We ordered the simplest food like Gyro and moussaka and both were terrible. First, the town does not have good restaurants, a few which are there are not good. Please avoid this or wait until a new owner takes over.

Our visit for dinner was at the end of a packed Fall event on Asbury Avenue. I was hoping we would get in and not have to wait. A wait would mean we would go somewhere else. Well, our timing was perfect for a table as we walked in to a packed dining room. The greeter at the door, (I... More

We were staying with friends and they recommended this place for breakfast and it was a joy. I think as I was dining here the image of being in the perfect place for breakfast occurred. Food was great, choices were plenty, service was freindly, the place was clean and it had a great vibe. Looking for a place for breakfast,... More

We've eaten at a few places in Ocean City whenever we visit, and while they're all fine, Yianni's Cafe is one you should not pass up. It offer excellent lunches, with fine service and fair prices. One could even just walk in for a cup of takeout coffee. If you're strolling along Asbury St. next time you're there, give this... More

I was in Ocean City, NJ today with friends, not knowing it was their daytime trick or treating event. We were pleasantly pleased, despite the crowds to easily find a convenient parking space and a comfortable bench to sit and watch as people of all ages paraded by in their Halloween costumes. It was a lovely way to spend the... More

My husband and I had breakfast here, for the first time, on a Monday morning in early October. It's a nice little casual restaurant. There was only one other table of guests. We sat inside (there are a few tables outside, as well). The service was good. I had a "typical" breakast - scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries, and toast... More
