Description: Baltzersen's is a Scandinavian inspired cafe and bakery based in the centre of Harrogate. We bake all of our own cakes and pastries from scratch with cinnamon buns being our most famous bakery product. We serve breakfast, brunch and lunch with our traditional waffles being a particularly popular choice all day and for an afternoon tea. We brew coffee using our bespoke blend from North Star Roast (Leeds) on espresso and single origin filter coffee from Maude (Leeds) on blue brew. Teas are supplied by The Tea Experience based in Doncaster. Our milk is from award winning organic dairy farm Acorn Dairy. We are child friendly, offer free fibre WiFi, free chilled filtered still or sparkling water and you are welcome to bring your dog too. We hope to see you soon. Regards Paul and the Baltzersen's team.

Good service and coffee very Scandinavian even gave us blanket so we could sit outside and have a drink rather than queue for a table as we weren't eating! Menu sounded great also we will be back!

Another great new cafe for us in HG! To my shame, I have often walked past this place thinking it would be just another cheese scone and muffin sort of place-somewhere with a themed gimmick, the ubiqutiously locally sourced ingredients and lime green outside chairs...wrong! In fact, BADLY wrong. It is simply wonderful.
Do go hungry and thirsty........

With Harrogate having so many Coffee Houses and Tea Rooms it was so nice to find one so nice and so different
The coffee is first class and the buns etc all made in house
We have enjoyed ourselves so much that we have now become regular customers

Viewing this place from the outside it is not the sort of place that would naturally attract me, the lime green plastic chairs would normally have me running for Betty's. We went in and so glad we did. It has a different look and feel to it when compared to your conventional cafe and another difference, the quality of food is streets ahead of many.
I also liked their honesty, when ordering two soups and two open sandwiches, they said that we may find just one sandwich to share would be enough with the soup and they were right. Ok so they lost the sale of a sandwich but have probably got a customer many times over as we will be back.
A great little place which has nothing to fear from any other similar establishment in Harogate.

This Scandinavian cafe may not look much from the outside but step inside and it definitely won't disappoint. The modern yet cosy interior design creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere. This is the perfect place to take a break and enjoy the unusual menu. Highly recommend the freshly baked cinnamon buns!
