About Us

We’re a Yorkshire family business with a passion for making life’s everyday treats even better

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.

Our Heritage

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.

Our Vision & Values

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.
