Committed to being a Family Business... It’s over 90 years since the young Swiss confectioner, Frederick Belmont, opened his first Bettys café in Harrogate in 1919. I am very proud to be a member of the third generation of Family who have had the honour to work in this special business, striving always to be true to Frederick’s original values of quality, craftsmanship, attention to detail and self sufficiency. If he were to wander into Bettys today, many things would be familiar to him – the handmade bread, cakes and chocolates from our own Craft Bakery; the finest teas and coffees served in sparkling silver pots; comfortable and cosy surroundings and delicious Swiss-Yorkshire food, delivered with a smile. In fact, it might look as if nothing much has changed at all. But without the willingness of Frederick’s successors to embrace new ideas and improvements, always with a desire to stay true to the past, Bettys would not be the business it is today. The fourth generation of Family owners are taking their responsibilities very seriously – especially the Family’s commitment to remaining an independent business – and already there are several members of the fifth generation, cutting their teeth on Fat Rascals! Our greatest pleasure is knowing that we are serving the second, third, fourth and fifth generations of Frederick Belmont’s customers.

The story of Bettys bread Long before the sun makes an appearance, our craft bakers are busy preparing ‘our daily bread’. Every morning you’ll find them making traditional Yorkshire loaves and more unusual continental breads in our wood-fired oven. From our nutritious Swiss Fitness Loaf to the adorable little character found on our Mouse Bread, crafting each item requires great skill and the finest ingredients – continuing a 90 year old tradition of small-scale artisan production. All of our speciality breads are available to take home.
