This branch of Bettys has the shortest queue of all the Bettys branches, possibley because Ilkley is less touristy than Harrogate and certainly York. I am not sure about North Allerton. The standard and to some extent the decor and ambiance are the same in all the branches with the possible exception of Harlow Carr in Harogate, which is a... More

Couldn't believe how packed out this place was at midday. Pleased that it wasn't raining as we had to queue outside for about 10 minutes before being shown to a table. Have to say this isn't reccomended for those with walking difficulties as there are quite a few steps to do if your on a lower floor or if you... More

One of the best experiences I had. Very pleasant and luxurious. A little wait to be seated. But worth it. I was with children and they loved the experience too. Food was lovely.

Excellent food and friendly service, though pricey. Long queue and quite slow in service. Ambiance is very pleasant. Not ideal for children, but nice for a quiet coffee/snack.

Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms have a widely-held reputation for good food (at a price). The front half of this centrally-situated shop (and eating area) in Ilkley has recently had a high-quality renovation which has improved the layout and accessibility; there are several impressive macaroon towers on view and a display of loose chocolates, as well as a huge collection of...

The short wait to get a table was well worth it. We were given the menu to peruse while waiting to whet our appetites. The kedgeree was delicious and the cakes all looked fresh and inviting. What a charming restaurant.

This is like having Vienna on your doorstep! Wonderful food, fantastic cakes and croissant, great staff (especially Adam), friendly, clean, smart and delightful. Never ever disappoints., and the cakes, chocs, teas and coffee to take away are superb. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful place in a very nice town, so near!

We visited for such and it was worth the 15 minute wait in the queue. The service was a bit slow but they were busy. The food isn't cheap but you do get what you pay for. My only critisisum was that the toilets were a mess with toilet paper and the extractor vent in the ladies loo was covered... More
