Our business started in 1919
Frederick Belmont, a baker and confectioner from Switzerland, opened his first Bettys Café Tea Rooms in Harrogate. The combination of mouth-watering Swiss confectionery and Yorkshire hospitality was an instant success. In 1962 we joined forces with fellow family business, Taylors of Harrogate, famous for importing high quality teas and coffees from around the world.
100 years later, Bettys & Taylors
is a vibrant and thriving family business
Now owned by the fourth generation of Frederick’s family, we’re proud of our Yorkshire and Swiss roots and still committed to quality, service and doing things properly.
We bake handmade bread, create beautiful cakes and pastries and blend proper tea and delicious coffee
Today there are six Bettys Café Tea Rooms, all in Yorkshire, as well as a Craft Bakery, Cookery School and online shop. Taylors is focussed on the founding passion of buying and blending exceptional teas and coffees and is the home of Yorkshire Tea, Taylors Coffee and Speciality Teas.
