Long Description:
You will have plenty of time to admire the Victorian wrought iron canopy, as you probably will have to wait in line outside the Tea Rooms. There was a Queue of approx 20 people waiting, on a freezing cold day. Once inside the shop you’ll be spoilt for choice with hundreds of breads, cakes and chocolates, as well as 50 different teas.

Bettys is also a Tea importer and Tea blender.

"The story of Bettys began in Harrogate in 1919 and we’ve been welcoming locals and visitors to our café tea rooms ever since.

Before you enter, it’s worth pausing under the wrought iron canopy to feast your eyes on the mouth-watering window displays that vary with the season. Once inside the shop you’ll be spoilt for choice with over 300 breads, cakes and chocolates, as well as 50 different teas and coffees.

In the café the tables by the windows overlooking the Stray and colourful Montpellier gardens are always the most popular, but in our downstairs Spindler Gallery you can enjoy views of Yorkshire of a more unusual kind. Here you’ll find a collection of exquisite Marquetry scenes of Yorkshire from the studio of Charles Spindler in Alsace, which was established in the late 1890s at the height of the Art Nouveau period. The founder of Bettys, Frederick Belmont, discovered Spindler’s work in the early 1930s and commissioned the studio to make Yorkshire scenes to hang in his café tea rooms." Text Source: (visit link)
