Little Betty’s Cafe

The six cafés are all in Yorkshire but Betty’s is a national institution - with over a million visitors a year sampling the fresh and simple Swiss-Yorkshire cooking inspired by its founder in 1919. The identity of Betty is still a mystery!

The Story of Betty’s
Circa 1900 young Swiss confectioner Frederick Belmont left for England. In London he boarded the wrong train to Yorkshire instead of the South Coast! But the scenery and clear air reminded him of his native Alps so he stayed, opening his very first Betty’s Café Tea Rooms in the spa town of Harrogate in 1919. It was an instant success. In the 1920s Frederick began a Craft Bakery nearby. As a result new Betty’s cafés followed in other Yorkshire towns. In the 1960s Betty’s joined with Taylors of York, famous family tea and coffee merchants that now offer Fair Trade.

 Many delicacies can now be bought online. Fresh baking of over 300 lines a day, often with local ingredients, is a key to Betty’s enduring popularity.
