On the picturesque St Helen’s Square, Bettys York is an elegant café serving lunch, dinner and afternoon teas. Inspired by the founder’s experience on the maiden voyage of the Queen Mary, the café is decked out in wood panelling, with large curved windows and ornate mirrors.

Afternoon tea at Bettys York involves a vast selection of teas, served with sweet and savoury delights. Classic blends join exotic black, green and white teas, as well as herbal blends on the lengthy tea menu. Traditional fresh sandwiches are followed by freshly baked sultana scones with strawberry preserve and Yorkshire clotted cream, as well as a selection of handmade cakes.

Add a touch of indulgence to afternoon tea with a glass of champagne, or sample the wide choice of specialty coffees, world wines, and local ales. Bettys also hosts regular events and live music, making it a lively venue day and night.

Bettys York is a 9-minute walk from York Train Station.

    My family were visiting and I wanted to do something special for them, and tea at Betty's was perfect. The atmosphere was lovely, the pianist somehow intuited our favourite songs, the waiter (Alex) was patient and attentive, and the food and tea were just amazing. We especially enjoyed the teas and the lavender scone. The coronation chicken sandwich was also scrumptious.

    The food was excellent, its looked too good to eat and tasted delicious.

    The piano player was superb, very relaxing and pleasant music. Great you could order more sandwiches, downside I found a hair in my sandwich. I told the waiter when he came over and he said he would take it to the chef.. he didn't even apologise I had to ask him when paying the bill what the chef said, his replay was oh yes she said sorry. At a high class place like Betty's and the service you give I would have expected more from this and food hygiene to be at more of a standard than finding a hair in my egg sandwich, the hair was long and black and I have blonde hair.

    A very enjoyable experience for me and my daughter. The waiter was charming, the food was delicious and the champagne was luxurious. We were also entertained by a wonderful pianist in beautiful surroundings.
