Fodor's Expert Review Betty's Cafe Tea Rooms

$ Harrogate Café Fodor's Choice

This celebrated Yorkshire tearoom began life in Harrogate in 1919, when a Swiss restaurateur brought his Alpine pastries and chocolates to England. The welcoming interior has changed little since it first opened, and the extensive array of teas not at all. In addition to omelets, quiches, sandwiches, and traditional cakes and pastries, the menu ranges from the Dales (sausages) to the Alps (rösti), and there are now gluten-free options. A pianist plays nightly. Reservations are accepted only for weekend afternoon tea, served in the Imperial Room.
