“Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We ate at Cafe Rita whilst visiting Harrogate for Le Tour Yorkshire. We decided to have the Afternoon Tea for two and we weren't disappointed. The food, service, quality and presentation were excellent. At £11.95 each, including a glass of Bucks Fizz, I thought this was fantastic value.

“A gem of a cafe just on the edge of town”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

This is such a lovely cafe. The decor is very smart and spotless. The staff are so friendly and obliging. Food excellent, service, sometimes a little slow, but ok if you have time to spare. If it was in the centre of town, it would be absolutely packed. As it is much better than alot that have the benefit of town centre positions.

“Very fine Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Decided to give their afternoon tea a try, on the recommendation of our B&B. Neither of us were particularly hungry, after a big breakfast at our 'digs', so decided to share one. It all tasted great and was excellent value for money. The staff were friendly and efficient.
It's not Betty's Tea Room but very acceptable at less than half the price. Well worth a visit.

“The best”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

This hidden gem is simply the best place to eat in harrogate. Slightly off the beaten track,I think an advantage, the food,the service,the owner,the cleanliness and the general ambience are brilliant. I would not go anywhere else for coffee, a sandwich or a full meal. The waitress in today, who has just returned, fresh from a holiday , was kind courteous and above all professional in the way she serves all her customers. it's a busy cafe in a busy street and part of the joy is to sit and watch the world go by. Keep it up Rita's, never mind anywhere else, they can't touch ya!

“Brilliant breakfast”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

I've just returned from a weekend in Harrogate and sort of stumbled upon Cafe Rita. We didn't have any particular expectations other than a bit of brekkie. Everything was lovely, the food, the service and all the little touches. Someone has taken a lot of time getting things 'just right'. Would definitely recommend this place; it's also great value for money and we went both days - it was so nice.
