If there’s one quintessentially ‘Yorkshire’ thing to do when in the county, it’s to have tea at Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms, which are dotted around.
York has two Bettys Tea Rooms – a larger one on St Helen’s Square and one on Stonegate (which we went to), which is smaller and more intimate.
When you walk past, you can’t help but gaze at the incredible displays in the shop windows. During our visit last month, they had hand decorated eggs, in celebration of Easter.
Inside, there is a delectable array of pastries and confectionaries. It’s heaven for anyone who has a sweet tooth.
Tea lovers are also in luck, because there is lots of it.
We headed upstairs to where the cosy tearoom is, for brunch.

I opted for kedgeree without egg.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole Bettys experience. The food was delicious, as was the tea. The staff where ultra attentive and the tearoom itself is a wonderful and welcoming environment. I’d highly recommend experiencing tea at Betty’s on your next trip to Yorkshire.
