Bettys was founded by Frederick Belmont, a Swiss baker and confectioner who came to England in search of opportunities to develop his craft skills. He opened his first Café Tea Rooms in Harrogate in 1919 and named it 'Bettys'. The reason why remains a mystery to this day.
Lots of things have changed since then. We now have six Café Tea Rooms in Yorkshire and the Bettys name has become famous the world over. We've also added a mail order service which delivers deliciousness to homes from Tunbridge Wells to Tokyo, and we share our knowledge and passion for food through Bettys Cookery School.
