Few visitors to York fail to visit Bettys. Founded in 1919, Bettys mouth watering cakes, refreshing teas and friendly smiles have made it world famous. Bettys in St Helen's Square is open from 9am to 9pm, making it perfect for everything from brunch to a three course meal. Upstairs in the Belmont Suite, book a table for our Lady Betty Afternoon Tea. There's also Bettys Stonegate, where you’ll be greeted by a small shop with antique dressers and cabinets, stocked with an extensive range of teas and coffees, cakes and gifts. Up a flight of winding stairs there’s a cosy café with wooden beams, and roaring fires in the winter.
