Betty’s, York

Whilst in York, we got our pinky’s out for Afternoon Tea at the infamous Betty’s.

Founded by Swiss baker, Frederic Belmont, in 1919, the family run business now houses 6 tea rooms/cafés in various locations in Yorkshire – staying true to the original combination of ‘Swiss confectionary and Yorkshire warmth’.

Right from the start we were met with warm smiles and class, with all the staff wearing the traditional uniform.

The Afternoon Tea menu included a range of 18 speciality teas, dainty finger sandwiches, and handmade scones and cakes.

Finally, we just wanted to point out… when dining in a fancy tea room, don’t ask the staff if they can read your future from your tea leaves… they will probably judge you.

That totally didn’t happen…
