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.
With such beautiful surroundings, why not treat yourself or a loved one to Afternoon Tea? Gift Vouchers are available to purchase in any of our six shops, or by telephoning Bettys Customer Services Team on 01423 814008.

The Montpellier Café Bar
Our Café Bar is reminiscent of the informal style of dining found in the cosmopolitan cities of Switzerland, Italy and France. Displayed in the counter where you place your order are a selection of classic pastries to accompany your morning coffee. You'll also find continental-style open sandwiches and filled rolls for the perfect lunchtime treat, and stunning handmade cakes, tortes and patisserie that will tempt you throughout the day.
The Montpellier Café Bar is also open in the evening, serving our full café tea rooms menu, ideal with a cup of coffee, pot of tea or even a deliciously chilled white wine – the perfect way to end your busy day.
