Learn More About Bettys Ltd.

Bettys café was the entrepreneurial dream of Fritz Bützer who left his home country of Switzerland at an early age and headed first to France where he trained in the art of confectionery and later to England, where he changed his name to Frederick Belmont. Armed with a passion for perfection and a vision to create a chic café reminiscent of those in his homeland, Frederick opened his first Bettys café in the spa town of Harrogate.

It was not long before Bettys became well known in Yorkshire for its excellent service, elegant surroundings and delicate continental cakes. Bettys boasted "royal and distinguished patronage", tempting customers with lavish window displays, live music from violin virtuosos, chic function rooms and catering services much in demand for wedding receptions and private parties.

And who is Betty? That bit of trivia remains shrouded in mystery to this very day as nobody knows for sure who this beloved café was named for. With over 100 years of delicious history, Bettys now has six locations and continues to be synonymous with quality and refinement.
